    HENNESSEY PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING ANNOUNCES LIMITED EDITION 705 HP LS9 POWERPLANT FOR THE 2010 CAMARO

    [​IMG]

    Extreme Performance Makeover Transforms the 2010 Camaro from Muscle Car to Super Car!

    SEALY, TX – Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE), well known for their extreme performance sports cars and muscle cars, announces their Limited Edition 2010 HPE700 Camaro.

    At the heart of the beast is GM's new LS9 supercharged V8 tweaked as only HPE could to 705 horsepower and 717 lb-ft torque. To qualify as a supercar under the HPE banner it can't just go, it has to whoa. With optional 15 inch carbon brakes from the stunning new Corvette ZR1, light weight HRE wheels with Michelin PS2 tires and full suspension upgrades the HPE700 Camaro will be able to make full use of its new found power.

    In addition to the power and handling upgrades., Hennessey will also be offering an exterior aerodynamics package to improve downforce at high speed. Penned by British designer, Steve Everitt, Hennessey's Cam-Aero ™ body upgrades include: Carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, carbon fiber side rocker panels, carbon fiber front splitter, front fascia with hideaway-look headlights and front billet grille. Completing the look of the HPE700 is a ZR1 inspired hood design with window showing off the Hennessey's tweaked LS9 powerplant.

    "The HPE700 Camaro allows our customers to combine supercar power and performance with classic American muscle car looks in a modern, daily-drive usable sportscar with a backseat and a trunk!," said John Hennessey, President and CEO of Hennessey Performance Engineering. "We will be announcing other Hennessey turnkey vehicle packages for the 2010 Camaro in the near future along with an extensive list of aftermarket performance parts and accessories. But for now, the LS9-powered HPE700 Camaro, replete with ZR1 inspired looks and performance promises to be at the top of the American muscle car food chain later in 2009.

    HPE700 buyers will also receive a 1-day performance driving course at Lonestar Motorsports Park – a ¼ mile dragstrip facility located adjacent to Hennessey's 24,000 square foot production facility and showroom.

    Hennessey is offering the first HPE700 Camaros exclusively to registered bidders at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ. Orders can be placed at the Hennessey display at the show or by phone or email beginning Tuesday, January 13 through Sunday, January 18, 2009. On Monday, January 19, 2009 the HPE700 Camaro will be available to the general public and can be ordered from select Chevrolet dealers as well as directly from Hennessey Performance Engineering.

    Base price for the 2010 HPE700 Camaro is $109,500.

    Located just west of Houston Texas at the Lonestar Motorsports Park complex, HPE has been building American supercars for nearly two decades with its Veyron-beating Venom Vipers, Ford GT's and recently released Dodge Challengers.

    They need to ditch the H on the rims, at a quick glance it looks like Hyundai rims.

    Tuners need to rethink their body kits. Taking a retro themed car and combining it with supercar components is one thing, but ass ramming it with modern and futuristic looks make that thing look like an abortion.

    I love the car to death, but fucking let the corvette look stay on the corvette.


    Yenko did it once with the 67 camaro by putting the stinger hood on it, the L88 didnt look much better. Why would hackman hennessy think this looks good?

    Does Hennessey have a reputable name again? Last time I looked on the Viper and Vette forums, there were people griping about him ripping them off, charging for work not done etc etc..... heh I even read a thread of a Viper Dyno day where there was a supposed GTS650r, but it put down as much power as the bolt on cars......

    I don't own a Jetta.

    That's a nice CGI drawing Hennessey made. When's the real thing rolling out? After he collects enough parts from customers' cars to build one?

    That looks awesome. If all the Camaro's looked like that then it would probably do better than the new Charger.
