we are easily contented with cars when it comes to horses they spew out. speaking of which, if we had a 450 hp C7 Corvette, we would be pretty satisfied, but for those who ain’t (you know who you are, don’t you?), Hennessey Performance has the fix just for you. meet the 2014 C7 Corvette by Hennessey Performance, where the maestro of making fast cars faster offers to jolt your C7’s output from 600 ponies all the way to 1,000 horsepower, depending how much power you desire and how much money you willing to put down. price starts from $18,450 for the modest 700 bhp package (we are clueless about the pricing for the “entry level” 600 bhp pack), while the 1,000 bhp mod will set you back at $67,950, and that’s not including the cost of the ride.
for the 600bhp package, you are expecting stuff like Eaton TVS R2300 supercharger, HPE air induction system, HPE engine management calibration, stainless steel cat-back exhaust system, long-tube stainless steel headers, five-point racing harness, along with some cosmetic touches such as Hennessey branding on the exterior, floor mats and carbon fiber door sills, plus CarbonAero parts including front and rear lip spoiler and side sills – just so that everyone knows that this isn’t your regular C7. but that’s just the HPE600 – for the true power connoisseurs, you can opt for the 1,000 bhp mod pack which includes HPE custom balanced and forged engine, twin ball bearing turbochargers, forged aluminum pistons, forged steel rods and crankshaft, custom HPE camshaft, high flow cylinder heads and more (on top of what the lower packages has to offer).
regardless which you choose, there are still options for other upgrades, including other CarbonAero parts, Hennessey Monoblock wheels, Michelin Pilot super sport rubbers, Brembo Carbon Ceramic Brakes, Penske Adjustable Suspension, custom leather interior, and carbon fiber bits for the interior. all packages offered are also available as Mail Order Kit.
