A decade ago, the fastest supercars around would need miles of straight pavement to hit 200 mph. But thanks to ever-improving technology and engineering, even a Chevy can smash the 200-mph mark in less than a mile.

TES Performance, a shop in Northwest Texas specializing in American performance cars, brought out its highly modified six-speed automatic C7 Corvette in September to set a standing half-mile and one-mile record. It was able to set a half-mile speed of 193.4 mph, and a standing mile speed of 238.4 mph. For context, that's faster than any new production car you can buy today, save for the Bugatti Chiron and of course, the Koenigsegg Agera RS. Remember, the Corvette pulled of this speed in just one mile. Imagine how fast it could go if it was given some more space.

Watch for yourself to see the Corvette's entire mile-long 238 mph run from the cockpit.
