Hennessey Performance has announced plans to boost the power of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray to an astounding 1,000 hp.
While the factory Stingray will have a naturally aspirated 450 hp 6.2-liter V8 under the hood when it goes on sale this summer, the Hennessey package adds twin turbochargers, an intercooler, high-flow cylinder heads, a custom cat-back exhaust system and a host of other refinements topped off by a 1 year, 12,000 mile warranty and a set of Hennessey premium floormats.
Try to get your Chevy dealer to throw those in for free.
Hennessey offers a similar upgrade for the existing Corvette, and the price for the modifications on the Stingray is $69,500 on top of the expected $55,000 cost of the car. Althought that might seem like a lot, the current top of the line Corvette ZR1 retails for about $124,000 and has a relatively measly 638 hp.
