Video: Hennessey-tuned 2014 Chevrolet SS hits 262 kph
Hennessey are at it again and they have just released footage of their version of the 2014 Chevrolet SS hitting 262 kph on a road in Texas, USA.
The Chevrolet SS has been fitted with a HPE600 supercharger to help generate the extra oomph from the 6.2-litre V8 engine, which normally produces about 415 hp. Hennessey were helping state officials test out the new toll-system on the road, hence the presence of the Dodge Challenger police car in the video.
The American-tuning company also pointed out that the modified SS can go much faster but Chevrolet told them to limit the speed to 162 mph (262 kph), which it hits in fifth gear on the 6-speed transmission.
