Our favorite American sports car, the all-new Corvette C7 Stingray, hasn’t even hit the showrooms yet, but that doesn’t mean aftermarket tuners aren’t’ already working on improving its looks and performance. Like the good folks at Callaway, with their C7 Corvette hatchback, Hennessey Performance has some major upgrades for the new Corvette.
The new Corvette Stingray already comes with plenty of power, the V8 pumps out 455 horsepower and does the 0 – 60 mph sprint in less than 4 seconds, but some people just need MOAR POWER!
The new Hennessey Performance program includes 5 different tunes, which range from 500 HP to 1,000 HP! The first package, called HPE500, massages the 6.2 liter V8 to produce 500 ponies. The next step up is the HPE600, with; you guessed it, 600 horsepower. This package comes with a TVS2300 supercharger, air induction, and other goodies (see below for full details). The next step up is the HPE700, with 700 HP; this upgrade builds on the HPE600, for an additional 100 HP.
The top of the line HPE800 and HP1000 take things to the extreme with 800 and 1,000 HP respectively. These engines are turbocharged and come with a lot of engine modifications, see images below for details.
In addition to increases in power, the Hennessey Performance Corvette also receives cosmetic and aerodynamic upgrades. The upgrades include carbon fiber spoiler, side skirts, and diffuser. The cars will be offered with 10-spoke H10 wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber. Hennessey will also offer interior, suspension, and brake upgrades at a later date. Via: Hennessey
