2014-chevrolet-corvette-stingray-drag-hennesseyThis is the first customer-owned, production 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray to be tested down the 1/4 mile dragstrip. As far as we know, it is bone stock. Factory stock equipment includes: Automatic transmission, Z51 & 3LT packages. VBox acceleration testing showed acceleration from 0-60 mph in 4.15 sec. and 0-100 mph in 9.50 sec.

The tests were performed by Hennessey at Lonestar Motorsports Park near Houston, Texas. Density altitude was 2742 ft when this car ran down the track. What’s for sure is that there will be more more testing of the new Vette by the team at Hennessey Performancebbin十大平台网 coming soon.

The Texas-based specialist has already announced plans to develop a number upgraded Corvettes, but, for the time being, the carbbin十大平台网 Hennessey tested completed the 402 in 12.23 seconds at 114 mph (183 km/h). It would probably do better with a manual gearbox, but that doesn’t make the 12-second run less impressive.

As a reminder, Hennessey is readying four packages for the 2014 Corvette, with power ratings ranging from 600 to 1,100 horsepower and prices between $12,495 and $67,950. This means we could be watching a 10-second Corvette by the end of the year. Check out the video on Read more!
