Hennessey has sent us this sneak peak of The Stig taking a hot lap around the TopGear USA test track in their Hennessey ZR750 Corvette ZR1.

Although during most of the lap the Corvette is too far away to see how it's performing, there are a few moments at the beginning and the end of the lap that communicate how quick the vehicle is. In fact, it's so quick that it set the new "unofficial" lap record for TopGear USA at 1:21.4 seconds.

Based on the Corvette ZR1, Hennessey's ZR750 upgrade kit gives a total of 755 bhp (563 kW / 765 PS), making the 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) sprint run of 2.8 seconds, 1/4 mile is 10.3 @ 139 mph. Standard power output in the Corvette ZR1 is 638 hp (476 kW / 647 PS).

Full specs in the press release below.
