C7 Corvette Stingray Rendered as a Hennessey HPE2000 Drag Car

Some say the best photoshops are those that are somewhat based in reality. The reality is that when you see this “Hennessey HPE2000 Corvette Stingray drag car” for the first time, you may think it’s real. After all, Hennessey Performance Engineering has made a name for themselves not only bring more and more horsepower to the Corvette Stingray, but also with their radical Venom GT program as well.

But alas, this is just a photoshop, “created for competition” says the note that goes along with the posting by RC82 WORKCHOP on Facebook.

We told you a few weeks ago about the sale of the mysterious Peter Max collection of Corvettes.

Apparently there’s more to the story now.

A lawsuit filed recently claims that the psychedelic pop artist of the 1960s – who once painted an entire Boeing 777 and a 600-foot stage for the Woodstock Music Festival – hasn’t paid two New York men the commissions he allegedly promised them for handling the sale of the 36 Corvettes.

[PICS] C5 Corvette Wins Our WTF Award With Tacky Stick-On Upgrades

Okay, we don’t actually have a “WTF Award” but if we did, this red C5 Corvette from the state of Washington would be a major contender. We haven’t seen a Corvette this messed up since the infamous Dragon Vette.

A Corvette Forum moderator named MasterDave spotted this Corvette in a Pet’s Mart parking lot in Federal Way, Washington.

If you want to know why the Corvette has always been among the world’s best performance cars, you can thank folks like John Heinricy.

His love for Corvettes has been a big part of his life since he was eight years old and driving tractors on the family farm in South Dakota.

It was in those days that he started riding his bike to a nearby town to watch drag races each Sunday, and wouldn’t you know, the car that caught his eye the most even then was a 1961 silver Corvette.
