Hennessey Performance Engineering, also known as HPE, has been tuning cars for a long time. They are very well known and tune various cars, everything from Chevrolet Corvettes to Audi R8’s and many other high performance cars. Taking something that is already powerful and overall a great car, and making it better is truly an art. HPE has been working hard on the new 2010 Camaro since it came out and is finally getting close to releasing the HPE700. The heart of this beast will be the 6.2 liter supercharged LS9 V8 from the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. This is not a simple drop and swap engine job. Hennessey is tweaking the engine to extract even more power from this amazing V8. The HPE700 will be rated at a incredible 725 hp and 741 lb-ft. That power is good for a quick sprint 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and you will be stopping from that speed in just 104 feet. Stopping will be handled by the upgraded 15 inch Brembo brakes. Other upgrades include a carbon fiber body kit and three piece 20 inch Hennessey designed wheels This car has been in development for quite a while and enthusiasts have been waiting impatiently. The official car is going to debut this week at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The HPE700 is set for a limited production run with only 24 units being built.
The below video was put out by Hennessey back in September of the HPE700 on the Dyno. Note- The hp and lb-ft numbers were different then the final numbers when the video was taken.
