Hennessey C7 Corvette Runs 200 MPH on Texas Toll Road

Earlier this month, a Hennessey C7 became the first 2014 Corvette Stingray to break the 200 mph barrier by reaching a maximum speed of 200.6 mph. Piloted by none other than John Hennessy himself, this incredible feat took place on a closed section of the new Grand Parkway toll road located just outside of Houston, Texas. The Hennessey modified Corvette is equipped with their HPE600 upgrade kit in conjunction with a 100 shot of nitrous which combines for a total of 700 horsepower.  As the old saying goes, “everything really is bigger and faster in Texas.”
