John Hennessey discusses & test drives the HPE700 Supercharged C7 Corvette.

The HPE 700 is powered by a TVS supercharger with 7 lbs of boost. The Corvette puts down over 600 horsepower to the wheels and overall horsepower is measured at 707.

The arctic white sports car also features Hennessey’s carbon fiber splitter and aero rocker panels. The custom wheels on the car not only look good, but they save around 17 pounds over the stock alloys.

Hennessey then takes the Corvette Stingray out to his test track and puts the angry-sounding C7 through its paces before finishing with a massive burnout.
