Hennessey helps the C8 Corvette realize its supercar potential.
Having finally delivered on the decades-long promise of a mid-engined Corvette, the C8 generation of the Chevrolet Corvette, at long last, takes the Corvette name to supercar levels, and opens the door for more performance potential than the Corvette has ever had before. With this being the case, it should come as no surprise that Hennessey couldn’t wait to get its hands on the all-American performance hero. Known for being one of the foremost experts in American performance, Hennessey has earned a reputation for taking cars that already have impressive performance and imbuing them with the extra dose of speed and power to transform them into unthinkably powerful machines, and that’s exactly what Hennessey did with the C8 Corvette.
Based on the Corvette Stingray, Hennessey tunes the engine, and also adds an intercooled supercharging system, as well as a new exhaust. When all is said and done, the “H700” Corvette delivers 708 horsepower and 638 lb/ft of torque. This eclipses even the amazing Corvette Z06’s 670 horsepower and 460 lb/ft. The full upgrade package is available from Hennessey at a price of $49,950, and Hennessey’s confidence in the engineering and build quality of the package includes offering a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty on the upgrade. For those with a seemingly insatiable need for speed, the H700 upgrade for the C8 Corvette from Hennessey may well be the answer.
