Video: Time-Lapse Video of Hennessey Supercharging a Stingray and Silverado
Hennessey Performance and the nation-wide automotive dealer AutoNation have recently announced their alliance in bringing Hennessey Performance parts to the masses through AutoNation’s extensive dealer network. That means you can walk into your local AutoNation Chevrolet dealer and order a Hennessey upgrade to your vehicle, so long as Hennessey makes a kit for it.
Kicking off this new partnership, Hennessey outfitted a Chevy Silverado crew cab with its HPE550 Supercharger kit and hooked a flatbed trailer to its hitch. Riding along is a Corvette Stingray convertible with Hennessey’s HPE650 Supercharger. As the supercharger names suggest, the Silverado now makes 550 horsepower and the Vette puts out an impressive 650.
What we see in the video above is the pair getting their modifications in preparation for their nationwide tour. Yep, starting this month, Hennessey will be touring the country, going from one AutoNation dealer to the next, showcasing the performance advantages of its engine upgrades. Demonstration rides will be given and burnouts will likely happen.
Once this Chevrolet tour is over in approximately 12 months, Hennessey will begin the same process with AutoNation Ford dealerships; showcasing Hennessey’s soon-to-be finished upgrades for the new 2015 Ford lineup. That includes the new Mustang and F-150.
