Hennessey, tuning specialists and masters of big power build some of the fastest cars around, with the C7 Corvette in line for a serious performance treatment. Hennessey is, after all, the company that announced earlier this year it would offer performance packages on the new C7 Corvette bringing the power figures up to 500, 600, 800, or 1000 horsepower. But just to gauge the capabilities of the factory model, HPE decided to take one to the drag strip, and film it.
Despite this base Corvette being fitted with the 6-speed automatic transmission, it still catapults to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and completes the quarter mile in 12.23 seconds at 114.88 mph. Impressive stuff for the slush box ‘Vette, but as this car is owned by Henneseey, we expect it to receive a large dollop of power in the near future courtesy of the Texan tuning titan.
