Like an M-80 shoved inside a watermelon, the new C7 Corvette Stingray is pretty damn effective. Straight out of the box, Chevy’s mainstay performance platform can easily outrun sports cars far above its price range. But that hasn’t stopped the power nuts in their search for even more from the Vette’s V-8 powerplant. Hennessey Performance is one such tuner, and is well known for making the fastest even faster. Its latest project is an HPE1000 package for the C7, and as you can see from the above-featured video, the results seem to be coming along nicely.
