Hennessey builds some of the meanest cars under the sun and now they’ve gotten their hands on the new C7. Uh oh.

Earlier this year Callaway Cars announced the shooting brake concept of the 2014 Corvette Stingray and said if there was enough demand for the concept then it would be built.

This day has been a long time coming for Nick George.
Now in his 30s, George started saving for a Corvette when he was just 5 years old. That dedication to Chevrolet’s sports car was rewarded today when he and his wife, Valerie, became the first customers to take delivery of a new Stingray at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.

Here’s another tuner that has recently got their hands on the 2014 Corvette Stingray. Hennessey Performance announced early on their plans to upgrade the new C7 Corvette and that process begins with doing a baseline dyno test of the car.
Alright Corvette folks, it’s time to do some good for the neighborhood. The 10th annual Toys for Tots Corvette Cruise hosted by
Motor Trend wasn’t able to get a couple of the newest supercars – the 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51 and the Ferrari F12 – for its annual Best Driver’s Car contest earlier this year, when the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S took the title again for the second straight year.
