A complete upgrade program for the 2-door Corvette C8 from Hennessey Performance is still under development. This was reported in the American studio.

Currently, only a stainless steel exhaust system has been prepared, adding 21 hp. (26 Nm) and weighing 5 kg less than the standard counterpart. Along with this, the tuning company developed the HPE850 package for the discontinued Corvette Z06 C7. The circulation of the kit will be 100 copies.

The V8 6.2 compressor motor has been significantly upgraded. The power unit was equipped with new cylinder heads, a camshaft, an air intake and engine cooling system, intake and exhaust valves with their actuators. As a result, engine performance increased to 862 hp. and 969 Nm of torque instead of the original 659 hp and 881 Nm.

The advanced coupe can accelerate to 97 km / h in 2.6 seconds, like the standard model. In addition, the set consists of nameplates on the back and original floor mats. It is worth noting that a two-year warranty or 38 thousand km is provided for the tuning kit, whichever comes first.
