Here is a fun video to start the day off right with.
Hennessey Performance Engineering recently upgraded a C7 Corvette Z06 Convertible with their HPE850 package and then took it out back to the Pennzoil Proving Grounds at Lonestar Motorsports Park for a bit of performance validation.
Unlike most of the videos that come from Hennessey, this one doesn’t feature other vehicles, nor does it have any commentary. Just the beautiful sounds of the Corvette Z06 at wide open throttle.
And can that Z06 fly or what. Hennessey probably wishes that stretch of track was a bit longer because we were just getting settled into triple-digit territory when it was time to let off the go-fast pedal as the video shows the car hitting 137 MPH before tapping out.
Hennessey says their HPE850 Z06 package is capable of 0-60 MPH sprints in 2.6 seconds and runs the quarter mile at 10.3 seconds at 136 MPH. If that’s not fast enough for you, you can always set up to the HPE1000 package.
Only 100 of these HPE850 Z06s will be created and as we see from the video, this is number 86!
