After seeing their previous projects, we can say that anything that Hennessy Performance touches will exceed expectations. This tuning outfit really knows how to turn any impressive ride into something even better. Some of the examples we can give you are a McLaren 600LT, Dodge Demon, Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, and others that were given the works. As such, these high-performance rides turned into jaw-dropping monsters on the road. Now, the shop is messing around again and this time it’s a 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette that will be undergoing an operation. After all the upgrades, they’re calling it the HPE1200 Twin Turbo.
Let’s head straight to the good stuff and find out what’s under the hood this time. According to the American tuner, they’re equipping the HPE1200 Twin Turbo with a beast of an engine for this build. The engineers are taking the 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette’s 6.2-litre LT2 V2 power plant giving it a makeover. We’re talking about improved internals such as aluminium pistons and forged steel connecting rods. To maximize the enhancements, Hennessy Performance is also reinforcing the stock 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.
On top of the work done on the drivetrain, the HPE1200 Twin Turbo is getting a CarbonAero bodywork. As the name implies, this will involve a lot of carbon fibre replacements for the front splitter, air dam, side skirts, and rear wing. Now that it’s capable of up to 1,200 horsepower, the shop is adding Brembo brakes and a Penske suspension system to keep this monster in check. Hennessy Performance has yet to reveal the price, but we’re sure some people will be lining up already.Check out more details here
