Hennessey HPE1000 Corvette Stingray Upgrade

Peanut butter and jelly were made for each other, and so were John Hennessey and performance cars. We all knew it was a matter of time before Hennessey Performance Engineering announced upgrade packages for the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and now that day has finally come. No matter whether you want your Corvette Stingray supercharged or turbocharged, Hennessey has what you're looking for.

We'll skip straight to the mack daddy HPE1000 Twin Turbo package for $67,950 (excluding the car). As the name implies, this package ups the power to a ridiculous 1,000 horsepower thanks to two turbochargers. The rest of the powertrain features upgrades including aluminum pistons, steel rods and crankshaft, high-flow cylinder heads, fuel system upgrades, dual wastegates, and an air-to-air intercooler. Of course there's stainless steel turbo downpipes and exhaust system, along with an electronic boost controller.

If all this isn't enough, there are optional upgrades such as a CarbonAero body upgrade, monoblock wheels, Brembo carbon ceramic brake kit, and Penske adjustable suspension. You can even option for a custom leather interior and carbon fiber interior accents.

The other turbocharged option is the $54,950 HPE800 rated at 800 horsepower. It's mostly the same package at the HPE1000 but it's using less boost.

If turbocharging isn't your thing, there are two supercharged options. The HPE600 and HPE700. Priced from $12,495 and $18,450 respectively, these packages both feature a TVS2300 supercharger system along with an HPE air induction system.

While the supercharged packages come with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty, the turbocharged packages only come with a 1 year/12,000 mile warranty.

If you would rather just add some upgrades to your new 2014 Corvette Stingray, all the hardware in these kits are available as stand-alone upgrades.

Now the only question is how much power do you want, and do you prefer turbochargers or a supercharger?
