If you’re the right combination of wealthy and crazy, Hennessey Performance Engineering has something you should be interested in. Something that suddenly makes the 700-horsepower Corvette ZR1 rumor drab by comparison, because HPE claims it will be able to boost the output of the 2014 Stingray Corvette’s 6.2L LT1 V8 engine from anywhere between 700 horsepower to 1,000 maniacal horses. We wonder if it comes with a will, and life insurance, as well.
The *lower* power upgrades will be courtesy of a supercharger kit, aimed to produce 700 horsepower. Meanwhile, it will be the twin-turbocharging kit that will increase the Stingray’s output from 800 to 1,000 horsepower. That’s more than double the original estimated power output of the base Corvette C7, which Chevrolet currently claims is 450 horsepower and torque even. Expensive tires will meet their doom.
