Corvette Of The Day: Hennessey HPE1200 C8 Corvette

No surprise that the C8 Corvette caught the team’s attention at Hennessey. It is, after all, one of the greatest American performance cars to have emerged in the modern era. Upgrades to the mid-engine Corvette include a new twin-turbo system and custom-built LT2 V8 engine.

The HPE1200 C8 Corvette will also gain a Penske adjustable suspension setup, Brembo brakes and a wind tunnel-tested Hennessey CarbonAero body kit. All told, the reimagined Corvette will generate a staggering 1,200 hp! In stock form, the C8 Corvette gets to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and tops out at about 194 mph. Expect this Hennessey beast to improve on these numbers.
