Hennessey Tweaks Corvette Stingray C7 then Attacks Texas Highway

The outfit that is Hennessey Performance Engineering has acquired a Corvette Stingray C7 and had their way with it. Watch as they take the 700 horsepower Hennessey C7 up to 200.6 miles per hour on a closed Texas toll road!

The Hennessey tweaked Corvette Stingray is called the Hennessey C7. It reaches a cool 200.6 on the closed circuit in the video above, marking the first time new stingray has broken the 200-mile per hour mark. The event occurred on Texas State Highway 99, where the toll road was closed, of course.

Hennessey’s HPE600 package bumps the performance specs of the 2014 Corvette Stingray up significantly. It factors in a nitrous oxide system that effectively multiplies the horses up to 700 and the top speed from 180 to just over 200 miles per hour. Hennessey also intends to release an HPE700 supercharged upgrade that does not utilize nitrous. One thing is certain, when John Hennessey gets his hands on a vehicle, it becomes something of legend with greater power and presence than it previously possessed.

This high-speed run down a closed Texas toll road verified the Hennessey Corvette Stingray C7 as the first double-century Stinger. It also brought to light how smooth highway 99 is…no word on the cost of shutting it down for the run! The Hennessey C7 kit costs around $25,000 for those interested in being awesome.
