At whatever point an exhibition centered vehicle is discharged in the U.S, you can be guaranteed that Hennessey Performance will get its hands on one and knock up its presentation. Notwithstanding, before chipping away at an ongoing C8 Corvette and Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 that came into its shop, the tuner arranged the two to perceive how they think about in an orderly fashion.
Kicking things off is a race from a standing beginning where the Corvette has a preferred position. While the ‘Vette’s 6.2-liter normally suctioned V8 motor ‘just’ produces 495 hp with the Z51 Performance Package, it is mid-engined and has a much-preferred grasp over the GT500.
Thusly, the Corvette gets off the line for speedier than the Mustang which, coincidentally, utilizes a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 with no under 760 hp. The Chevy clutches its lead for a seriously long time and it isn’t until the C8 hits approximately 120 mph (193 km/h) that the Mustang overwhelms it and tempests ahead gratitude to its additional force.
For the subsequent test, the two went head to head in a moving race from 40 mph (64 km/h). This race favors the Mustang since it can put the entirety of its capacity to the ground as it so happens without experiencing any footing issues as it does when getting off the line.
Neither of these outcomes is astonishing yet they have made us very charmed to perceive how Hennessey’s twin-turbo Corvette will pile facing a GT500 when it’s been tuned and is running at full force.
