SEALY, Texas — Hennessey Performance Engineering has announced plans to create a 1,000-horsepower upgrade package for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray that will cost $69,500, the company confirmed for Edmunds on Tuesday.
The seventh-generation 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will roll out of the factory in the third quarter of 2013 with 450 hp and 450 pound-feet of torque. For those not willing to wait for a higher-performance variant, Hennessey will be offering modification kits for both hardtop and convertible models.
Like its packages for the 2010-'13 Chevrolet Camaro and other vehicles, HPE plans to offer programs with varying degrees of upgrades for the new Corvette. Buyers can opt for a supercharger package good for up to 700 hp or a twin-turbo system that would deliver output between 800 and 1,000 hp.
The Texas tuner will also offer bolt-on performance parts like cold-air induction systems, cat-back exhausts, headers, wheels, and Brembo brakes, as well as upgraded suspension kits.
John Hennessey, president of Hennessey Performance Engineering, said renderings of the tuned Corvette Stingray are not available yet. With two orders already in, it will take six to nine months to develop once the tuner receives the customers' cars in the third quarter of this year.
Edmunds says: HPE will no doubt make over-the-top performance numbers happen for the C7.
