Texas-based tuner Hennessey Performance has been creating faster C7 Corvettes since the first Stingrays began shipping to customers in the Fall of 2013. Today, the company offers no less than eight different performance packages for the Stingray model. Of those eight packages, Hennessey’s HPE 1000 C7 Corvette Stingray is the most brutal with 1,000 horsepower and 887 lb-ft of torque.
Hennessey’s HPE 1000 package goes for $74,500 and the amount of work done to transform the mild-mannered 460-hp LT1 into the ground pounding HPE 1000 is significant. The engine makes its increased power with a 2.9L supercharger and a number of other performance parts listed on Hennessey’s website.
The good news is that when your HPE 1000 Corvette Stingray is complete, it will sound like this:
