Hennessey Is Preparing A 1200 hp C8 Corvette

The team over at Hennessey is currently working on the HPE1200 Twin Turbo C8 Corvette, a 1200 hp 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8.

John Hennessey, Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) founder and chief horsepower evangelist, is currently gauging interest on the Chevy Corvette C8 platform and has already big plans for it.

The tuner is said to be preparing the HPE1200 Twin Turbo C8 Corvette pushing up to 1200 hp.

The HPE1200 C8 will feature a specially designed twin-turbo system which will include “a specially built LT2 V8 engine with upgraded engine internals including forged aluminum pistons (10.0:1 compression ratio) and forged steel connecting rods.” An upgraded and fortified factory dual-clutch transmission will also be included in the kit.

We expect the new C8 Corvette to be an excellent platform from which our clients can further personalize their cars, which obviously includes adding more power and performance,” said John Hennessey.

HPE is also planning to offer its signature CarbonAero carbon fibre body upgrades, as you can see in the pictures. The aero add-ons includes a front splitter and airdam and rear carbon fibre wing.

For the C8 owners who don’t want 1200 horsepower, the company will offer something more modest. Indeed, a supercharger system upgrade for up to 700 hp will be proposed by Hennessey.

We are very excited about the new C8 Corvette and have big plans for it,” said Hennessey. “From mild to wild, we plan to offer a wide variety of track tested parts and upgrades that come with a warranty. We’ve modified over 500 C7 Corvettes since 2013 and expect to upgrade many more C8 Corvettes starting in 2020!
