First Customer-Owned Corvette Stingray Runs 12.23 @ 114.88--Bone Stock: Video

Follow Nelson

Hennessey Performance Engineering does many things we envy, from the Venom GT to its ridiculous/awesome CTS-Vs. But this we don't so much envy--we've already driven the Stingray hard. We can't say it surprises us, either. But it's still impressive.

A bone-stock, automatic-transmission Stingray, the first customer car known to have hit the strip, ran a 12.23-second quarter mile with a trap speed of 114.88 mph. And it's Hennessey's Corvette, so you can bet this is the slowest it will ever go.

Along the way to the end of the quarter mile, the Stingray ripped off a 4.15-second 0-60 mph time and 0-100-mph in 9.5 seconds. That's a hair under the claimed 3.7-second time for the Z51-package Corvette Stingray, but we're guessing it might have had a little trouble hooking up on its stock tires.

An impressive result, to be sure, but we're really looking forward to what comes next.
