Like a bat out of hell, the Hennessey supercharged C7 Corvette rockets down a dragstrip, as you could imagine. But the kind people from HPE have provided video of them testing their HPE700 Supercharged ‘Vette to make everyone a believer.
The base vehicle is a 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with the 8-speed automatic. Hennessey slapped on some drag slicks and worked their magic with their supercharging technology, and took it to the strip to see what they’d done. Well, they’ve done pretty well.
0-60 absolutely screams by at 2.9 seconds. We could have stopped there and told you that was impressive enough, but wait there’s more. The quarter mile is done in 10.97 seconds at a staggering 131.3 mph. Wow. Never has an 8-speed automatic sounded so good, either, where you can easily distinguish the lighting fast blips as the car rockets down the strip.
So, what we’ve learned is if you want to surprise a 2015 Corvette Z06 driver, just give your Corvette Stingray over to the guys at Hennessey. Check out the runs in the video we’ve provided down below.
