Hennessey C7 Stingray hits 200mph

I love the new Corvette C7 Stingray; it's fast, beautiful and sounds great. The 6.2L V8 engine produces 460hp which is enough to offer good performance, such as a top speed of 190mph (305 kph) and a sprint to 60 mph (100 kph) in just 3.8s. But what if, you want more from this american muscle?

Well, you can wait for the future Z06 and ZR1 versions, or you can simply go to Hennessey in Texas and ask for a tune. The famous tuner has pumped up the C7 with the use of a new supercharger and with the addition of a 100 HP Nitrous Express kit. The result? A 700hp muscle which is able to reach 200mph (322 kph), by making it the fastest C7 on the market and the first to break this barrier!
