Watch: 850 hp Corvette Vs 750 hp Corvette
In the end we're all winners.
So the Corvette ZR-1 has 755 horsepower from the factory which sounds like enough but it's not. Thankfully the fine folks at Hennessey have already extracted 100 more horsepower from the Corvette's LT5 V8.
So you have 1,600 horsepower worth of Corvettes, what do you do next? Well you send those things down a drag strip, for science. As it turns out 100 horsepower is a big deal and the race results show.
When it comes to the Corvette ZR-1 I never thought it needed more horsepower. Then I saw this video and I have to say, I've changed my mind. Let's give that sucker 200 more horsepower, this is America after all.
