We have to love the guys and gals at Hennessey Performance, and not only because John Hennessey himself owns a Chevrolet SS. We also quite like them because they give us cars like this.
This is the 2015 HPE800 C7 Corvette Z06. What does the “800” stand for, you ask? 800hp. And HPE has provided a video of their creation moving from 0-175 mph. And it goes like a bat out of a frozen-over hell.
Interestingly, though, HPE left the wicker blade on. We’d think removing the aero bit would help with high-speed runs like this. But, they’re the professionals, not us. We’ll sit back and enjoy the sound of the macho LT4 6.2-liter V8 make delightful noises after Hennessey has had its way with it.
We won’t stand in your way any longer. Go ahead and check the car out for yourself down below, and prepare for loud noises.
