Hennessey HPE550 Camaro 2010 launched
American tuner Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) does not have the best of reputations in the United States, but whatever they do create is always noteworthy. Already busy developing a 705 hp version of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro with a modified Corvette ZR1 engine, which they plan to launch in early 2010, Hennessey is currently launching a simpler 562 hp Camaro, calling it the HPE550.
The limited edition HPE550 uses the Camaro’s standard LS3 V8 engine from the SS model, but adds a Magnuson supercharger and stainless-steel Corsa sports exhaust system. Power is boosted to 562 hp at 6,200 rpm and 754 Nm of torque at 4,200rpm. Other modifications include new fuel injectors, a high-flow intake, aluminium wheels, a custom aerodynamics package and stickers. According to Hennessey’s own claims the HPE550 Camaro will do the 0-100 kph run in 4.3 seconds.
The kit alone costs the equivalent of Dhs 69,500, not including the cost of installation and the price of a new 2010 Camaro SS. HPE has sent been in contact with us before, indicating that they are ready to ship their products to the UAE.
