A factory-stock Chevrolet C7 Corvette Stingray has an estimated half-mile time of 19.5-seconds at 137.9 miles per hour. Now, we’re not sure how long it took this TES Performance-built C7 Corvette to cross the half-mile marker, but when it did, it was doing 193.4 miles per hour. It then went on to hit 238.4 mph in its standing mile run, setting a world record for the seventh-gen Corvette.
The folks at TES Performance seem to be quite pleased with the results, as they should be, but the firm isn’t resting. TES says that changes will be made to the car during the off-season, and that this Corvette will be even quicker in 2018. This probably means an upgraded fueling system and bigger turbochargers are on the way, but we’ll just have to wait to find out.
We applaud TES Performance for its new C7 Corvette standing mile record, and we look forward to seeing what the firm has up its sleeves for next year.
