The 2014 C7 Corvette Stingray comes stock with a 450-hp 6.2-liter V8 under the hood, but one performance company is promising it can make 1,000 horsepower out of the Chevy sports car.
According to Fox News, Texas-based Hennessey Performance wants to add twin turbochargers, an intercooler, high-flow cylinder heads, a custom cat-back exhaust system and several other high-performance parts to add the extra power.
The company told Fox that the mods and labor will cost around $70,000, and they’ve already taken two orders.

Multiple news sources across the internet are reporting that Volkswagen is introducing an update to the Amarok pickup truck. It initially included a 2.0-liter turbocharged TDI that put out 120 horsepower and a 2.0-liter BiTDI twin-turbo powerplant we that delievered 180 horses.
However, perhaps in an attempt to be more competitive in the pickup truck market, the Amarok is being upgraded to produce 140 horses in the 2.0-liter TDI. It’s expected to produce 251 lb.-ft. of torque.
The changes aren’t expected to affect fuel efficiency, though it’s 0-60 speed time dropped by .06 seconds.
