KATY, TX The new section of the Grand Parkway connecting I-10 to Highway 290 in Cypress will open Saturday, but a 2014 Corvette Stingray with a need for speed already gave it a test run.
The 700 HP Hennessey C7 was clocked at 200.6 mph thanks to a boost from the company s products.
Officials from TxDOT, DPS and TransCore were there to witness the testing of the EZ tag toll system. The Corvette s license plate was clearly photographed even at 200 mph.
Hennessey, located in Sealy, only plans to make 100 of the 2014 Corvettes. The YouTube video includes the message: Closed course; Don t try this at home.
