C8 Corvette Joins the 200 MPH Club

Post by koimaster » May 19th 2020, 10:28am

Yee-haw! Earlier this month, a Hennessey-tuned 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette rocketed up to a top speed of 205.1 mph at the Continental Tires Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas. Driver John "Heinrocket" Heinricy had the pleasure of pushing the all-new mid-engine Corvette Stingray Z51 on the 8.0-mile closed oval to its impressive new triple-digit record mark on May 8. Hennessey claims the first C8 to break the 200-mph barrier was verified by VBox GPS.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
