It took a while, but Texas-based Hennessey, have announced a supercharged V8 upgrade for the C8 Corvette Stingray. As a result, the new Hennessey Supercharged H700 Corvette Stingray can push out just over 700 horsepower.
Hennessey H700 Corvette Stingray Package: Details
The eighth-generation Corvette Stingray coupe is shipped with a mid-mounted LT2 6.2-liter V8 engine. Naturally aspirated in stock form, it delivers 490 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque; however, if you have one and want it to surpass the flagship Z06, which has 670 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque thanks to its naturally-aspirated 5.5-liter LT6 flat-plane crank V8 engine; Hennessey’s H700 package has you covered as it unleashes the untapped potential of the American small-block V8. And it does so despite GM’s encrypted ECU and TCU that we find on the C8.
Now onto the details. Hennessey affixes a high-flow centrifugal supercharger, an air induction system with an air-to-water intercooler, and an optional cat-back exhaust onto the LT2 V8 engine, which is naturally aspirated from the factory. The Corvette Stingray H700 is completed with updated high-performance engine software and boasts an explosive 708 horsepower and 638 lb-ft of torque. That’s a 44 percent increase in horsepower and a 37 percent increase in torque over the factory rating. The H700 Corvette Stingray package also includes an engine tune, lightweight wheels, cat-back exhaust, and graphics. The 19- and 20-inch alloy wheels are offered with a Brushed Aluminum, Satin Black, or Graphite finish, while the striking vinyl Hennessey Heritage Livery is shown in Blue, White, Black, Silver, or Red. All packages feature ‘Hennessey’ and ‘H700’ badging and a serial numbered plaque.
The Hennessey ‘H700’ Corvette Stingray package fits all 2020-2022 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Coupe models and is offered for international shipping. A comprehensive three-year / 36,000-mile limited warranty backs the package. It is available from authorized Corvette retailers or through Hennessey’s website though pricing and availability have yet to be revealed.
