Fitted with a pair of precision ball bearing 62-mm turbochargers producing 7 psi of boost pressure, the Vette’s V8 engine now delivers 707 horsepower and 661 pound-feet of torque. Power goes to the wheels, which can be fitted with optional 20-inch drag radial tires, via either a 7-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Hennessey says the HPE700 2014 Corvette accelerates from naught to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 2.9 seconds and completes the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds at 135.4 mph (217.9 km/h) when equipped with the aforementioned tires. Top speed is estimated to exceed 210 mph (338 km/h).

Priced at $120,000, including the base Corvette Stingray with 3LT and Z51, the vehicle will make its public debut at the Boca Raton Concours on February 21.

"We've taken America's sports car and transformed it into an American supercar," said company founder and president John Hennessey, "and it's a testament to the soundness of Corvette engineering that the new Stingray not only copes with this massive infusion of power, it seems to thrive on it."
