Hennessey Introduces H700 Corvette C8 Stingray
Hennessey has unveiled the new Hennessey Supercharged H700 Corvette C8 Stingray, the Texas-based tuner announced.
The eighth-generation Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray coupe is shipped with a mid-mounted LT2 6.2-liter V8 engine. Naturally aspirated in stock form, it delivers 490 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. However, Hennessey’s Texas-based engineering team fits a high-flow centrifugal supercharger, an air induction system with an air-to-water intercooler, and an optional enhanced cat-back exhaust to improve performance, the company said.
Completed with updated high-performance engine software, the ‘H700’ produces 708 hp and 638 lb-ft of torque— a 44 percent increase in horsepower and a 37 percent increase in torque over the factory rating, according to Hennessey.
“The stock C8 Corvette Stingray is an extraordinary sports car, yet Chevrolet left some V8 performance on the table,” said John Hennessey, company founder and CEO. “Our exciting ‘H700’ supercharger package integrates seamlessly with the 8-speed dual-clutch gearbox, and our exhaust upgrade sounds much more aggressive than stock. Considering that our power and torque surpass the factory Z06, the Hennessey ‘H700’ is arguably the best value high-performance supercar in the world.”
The complete Hennessey Supercharged ‘H700’ Corvette C8 Stingray upgrade package includes the supercharger, intercooler, engine tune, lightweight wheels, cat-back exhaust, and graphics. Additionally, 19- and 20-inch alloy wheels are offered with a Brushed Aluminum, Satin Black, or Graphite finish, while the vinyl Hennessey Heritage Livery is offered in Blue, White, Black, Silver, or Red. All packages feature ‘Hennessey’ and ‘H700’ badging and a serial numbered plaque.
