Watch Hennessey’s 650-HP C8 Corvette Hit Over 200 MPH

In addition to the nitrous kit, the rear spoiler was also taken out to minimize drag and enhance the top velocity. Then, former GM Overall performance Division director and 15-time SCCA Nationwide Winner John Heinricy (who will also be engineering the Hennessey Venom F5) received guiding the wheel.

With his steady inputs, and 650 horsepower, the C8 Corvette realized a recorded velocity of 205.1 mph, as verified by a VBox GPS. That can make this the swiftest C8 Corvette in the globe right now.

“We developed a new stainless-metal exhaust process for the C8 that slightly will increase ability (20 hp), improves audio and is lighter by all around 12 pounds,” claimed firm founder, John Hennessey.
