Hennessey Slaps Two Turbos On The New 2020 C8 Chevrolet Corvette

Well-known Texas-based tuner Hennessey creates music and power with a new C8 Chevrolet Corvette

  • Tuners are ready to tune the new C8 Corvette – Hennessey got to work quickly.
  • With two turbos, the Corvette should be making about 1,200-horsepower.
  • It sounds incredible.

Stories involving the new hot-anticipated C8 2020 Chevrolet Corvette will be very common as the weeks and months go by, despite the current climate. The hunger for all things car and the desire for more on the new C8 will keep tuners and scribes busy. Hennessey Performance is no stranger to making things go fast. Their latest project is twin-turbocharging the new Corvette.

Late last year, Hennessey warned the world that they were going to do exactly that and now, according to their Facebook page, they have. Details on the build itself are scarce other than there clearly are two turbos mounted behind the engine. Last week, Hennessey dyno-tested the Corvette without the two rear-mounted snails and discovered it was putting down 466-horsepower and 451 lb.-ft. of torque at the wheels.

Hennessey shared last December with all that it had huge plans for the C8 Corvette and its LT2 V8 engine. Part of the HPE1200 Twin Turbo C8 Vette’s build will include an “an upgraded and fortified factory dual clutch transmission.”

We have no doubts that Hennessey will deliver the power. As it stands, we eagerly are awaiting  the next dyno test…

And, if 1,200-horsepower is too much, for some reason, Hennessey will offer a supercharger system upgrade good for up to 700-horsepower.
