God Bless Texas. And John Hennessey.

All you need is John Hennessey and a Texas toll road to get the new Corvette Stingray to 200 mph. With the blessing of the Highway Patrol. Click here for the article and video about how Hennessey did it. Only in Texas, my friends.

Although…it might have been a good idea for him to have had both hands on the steering wheel. And is it just me, or does the new Corvette interior still look a little cheapie?

Commence commentary.

You might also like to see Hennessey’s 220-mph sprint down another Texas toll road in his 1,200 hp Cadillac CTS-V. I drive this particular road. I am pleased to hear 220 is possible. I am less pleased to hear that the Highway Patrol’s radar guns are capable of recording triple-digit speeds that begin with the number 2. I guess I will just stick to the 85 mph speed limit. Sigh.

Hennessey may be my hero.
