When the 2014 C7 Corvette ZR1 is finally released we already know that it will have a performance advantage over the standard C7 Chevy Corvette Stingray because it will be packing around 700 horsepower. However, if you are looking for a little more then Hennessey may just have the answer.
It looks as though the Hennessey C7 Corvette is to get a specs boost, some of which would be able to give the Pagani Huayra a run for its money. We say this because the engine will produce 1,000 horsepower thanks to its twin- turbo, but we know that it’s not all about brute force.
While the Hennessey C7 will have almost 300hp more than the Pagani Huayra, if you were to put the two together in an all out race you’d be a fool to bet against the Huayra. However, that would be one race we would love to see, just to show the American car manufacturer Chevrolet and tuner Hennessey just how a car should be built — although for a price.
We’ve already seen several videos doing the rounds on the Internet that some drivers are unable to control the power in the standard Stingray, so how would they be able to manage all that extra horsepower? Thankfully Hennessey realize this, which is why they are not doing a simple boost right up to 1,000 horsepower.
The Hennessey C7 Corvette will have a number of upgrades allowing you to increase the power of the engine step-by-step. Thankfully there is to also be an upgrade to the suspension and braking system, which you can read more about HERE. There are currently no details on price, but it’s not going to be cheap — although cheaper than a Pagani Huayra.
