According to their dyno figures, the Z06, with the standard 7-speed transmission, produced 570 RWHP, down 12.4 percent from the crank figure of 650 HP. No word on the decline in torque, but based on other tests, we’d figure that number is virtually identical to the RWHP, in other words, 570 ft-lbs.

[VIDEO] Hennessey Shows Off the HPE650 Corvette Stingray

Most of us will never have the chance to drive, much less own, a supercar like the 2014 Hennessey Performance HPE650 supercharged Stingray or the upcoming 2015 Corvette Z06.
