Hennessey Brings Out the Performance Goods for New Corvette Stingray

Even in its most basic form, the new 2014 Corvette Stingray is a powerful beast sporting a 455-horsepower V8 that can catapult it to 60mph (96km/h) in under 4 seconds. Naturally, GM has many more models in store for us with the most anticipated being the flagship ZR1 – that is, if you don’t want to go the tuner way…

Today, one of America’s most well-known aftermarket firms, Hennessey Performance, released its tuning program for the C7 Corvette, and as you would expect, it’s pretty impressive when it comes to output figures. 

While there are individual options, Hennessey will also offer five different Stingray packages starting with the HPE500 (currently being developed) that builds on the naturally aspirated V8 to bring output up to 500-horses.

The 600HP HPE600 and 700HP HPE700 (as you can see, the numbers in the name denote the output) use an Eaton TVS R2300 supercharger system, while the 800HP HPE800 and the monstrous 1,000HP HPE1000 are fitted with dual turbochargers among other upgrades that are detailed in the lists below.

Hennessey Performance’s optional goods extend to the Corvette Stingray’s aerodynamics and looks with carbon fiber spoilers, skirts and diffuser and 10-spoke H10 alloys shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. Later on, the tuner will also release upgrades for the interior, a coilover suspension system utilizing Penske double-adjustable shocks and Brembo brakes with carbon-ceramic rotors.
