Hennessey Performance removed their twin turbo setup that they previously installed on their 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and added a nitrous oxide system along with a custom exhaust setup, lifting the output to 650 horsepower and allowing this C8 to reach a stunning top speed of 205.1 miles per hour.

Hennessey Performance was one of the first shops in the United States to tear into the new 2020 Chevrolet Corvette, installing a custom twin turbo setup. The Texas shop has replaced the forced induction setup with a nitrous oxide system and headed to the Continental Tire Proving Ground to see what kind of top speeds could be reached with the extra power. Not surprisingly, the combination of the C8’s sleek lines and that extra power afforded this Stingray a top speed over 200 miles per hour.
