This is the new Hennessey H700, and it’s a souped up version of the C8 Corvette.

New Hennessey Corvette H700 engine and performance

If you’ve ever thought that a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 with almost 500hp was a bit weedy, the Hennessey H700 is here to help.

This is a kit which can be fitted to any C8 generation Corvette Stingray from 2020 onwards. You get a whopping great supercharger, intercooler and an engine tune. An upgraded sports exhaust is also available.

All this adds up to 717hp and 865Nm of torque. That’s more than a Lamborghini Huracan, and it’s even more powerful than Chevrolet’s own Corvette Z06.

New Hennessey Corvette H700 design

Changes to the exterior of the Hennessey H700 are pretty minimal, and you have to pay extra if you want the visual upgrades.

You can get some new alloy wheels which are 19-inches at the front and 20-inches at the rear, and can be finished in either silver, black or grey. There’s also the Hennessey Heritage livery available in blue, black, white, silver or red.

New Hennessey Corvette H700 price

The Hennessey H700 kit can be fitted to any Chevrolet Corvette Stingray from 2020 onwards. That car starts from $64,500 in the USA (around £54,000).

If you just want the supercharger upgrade, the H700 kit will cost you an additional $34,950 on top of that, which is just over £29,000. If you want the wheels, livery and sports exhaust you’ll have to part with $49,950, or £42,000.

Expect to spend a great deal more than that if you want this car in the UK though once you’ve forked out for the cost of importing it to our shores.
