2014 HENNESSEY C7 CORVETTE, SUPERCHARGED 700+HP REACHES & EXCEEDS 200 MPH MARK!!!
It isn’t very often – if ever – you get the privilege of shutting down an entire section of highway for your own, completely legal top speed run. That is, of course, if you live in Texas where they do everything big and you’re planted in a modified 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 huffing a 100-shot of nitrous.
On December 11, 2013, a 700 HP Hennessey C7 became the first 2014 Corvette Stingray to break the 200 mph barrier by reaching a maximum speed of 200.6 mph. This was achieved on a closed section of the Grand Parkway which connects I-10 to Hwy. 290 on the west side of Houston, Texas. Officials from TxDOT, Texas DPS and TransCore were on hand to witness the testing of the EZ tag toll system. Special thanks to TxDOT Chairman, Ted Houghton.
The Hennessey C7 Corvette was equipped with the company’s HPE600 upgrade with the addition of a 100 HP Nitrous Express kit.
