Test Drive of the 1,008 HP Z06 Corvette by Hennessey Performance

What do you get when you install the Hennessey HPE1000 Supercharged Engine Upgrade in the C7 Z06 Corvette? One of the most exhilarating rides possible in the American sports car. In a new video by Hennessey Performance, the man behind the company, John Hennessey, takes an HPE100 Z06 out for a spin around their proving grounds. The upgrades given to the car can be found here, but the star of the list has to be the new supercharger system. All-in-all, the Corvette he’s driving has 1,008 horsepower and 823 lb-ft of torque at the ready. This power launches the car from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds– those are supercar numbers! It can also complete a 1/4-mile in 9.7 seconds @ 147 mph and will top out at over 220 mph. Check out the video below to see the car in action for yourself and click the link below to find a Z06 for yourself.
