Hennessey really is the thing when it comes to quality tuning. This time, they’ve taken a rather impressive 2015 Chevrolet Corvette C7 and made it go like its on fire. The new ‘Vette is a crazy car by itself, but this Hennessey tuned monster takes everything to a whole new level. With a supercharger, better cooling and totally reworked ECU, the Corvette C7 is good for 700 HP.
The car even has a new name – the Corvette HPE700, and testing done on quarter of a mile drag strip shows that this Corvette with a Hennessey tuned engine can slash the time for ¼ of a mile pass to less than 11 seconds. This is an astonishing feat which cannot be done even with the ZR1.
This particular ‘Vette is equipped with an eight speed automatic transmission and a new grippier tires. The time it clocked is 10.97 with the speed of 131,3 mph with the first 60 ft passed in 1,77 seconds. These are formidable numbers even for a tuned car. The best of all is that this tuning kit is not as expensive as the difference between the usual ’Vette and ‘Vette Z06.
Look at the comments of this video. One man suggested that the Hellcat will do this when new and that is true, but then again, the Hellcat ain’t the ‘Vette and it surely cannot corner or make the track day as good as this ‘Vette can.
The bottom line is that you don’t have to go all the way to the Z06 to reach this kind of performance. Do the same with this HPE700 Supercharged Corvette by Hennessey.
