200 MPH On A Texas Toll Road, In A C7 Corvette

John Hennessey, high-performance impresario and creator of many entertaining ViperClub comment threads, has done it again.

In what he claims is a first-ever trip to 200mph by a tuned C7, JH “tests” the Ez-Tag system by blowing past it at more than double the already-enthusiastic 80mph toll-road speed limit. Interestingly enough, the factory speedometer in the LCD display appears to be dead-on accurate.

“The road is smooth as silk, easy-breezy,” Hennessey indicates, in a phrase that will no doubt launch at least a dozen imitators.

    The car is nice. Really nice. The video was boring. Utterly boring.
