Hennessey HPE700 Camaro: Das Biest mit 705 PS

Hennessey HPE700 Camaro

Yenko hat es damals vorgemacht, Hennessey Performance Engineering macht es ihnen gleich und hat soeben den HPE700 angekündigt. Der HPE700 ist ein 2010er Chevrolet Camaro SS mit einem LS9 V8 Motor aus der Corvette ZR1, welcher mittels Kompressors eine Leistung von 705 PS und 972 Nm Drehmoment, leistet. Das sind 20 PS weniger als beim Dodge Challenger SRT600 bzw. SRT700. Für die nötige Verzögerung, sorgen neue 15 Zoll Carbon Bremsen, welche auch direkt von der ZR-1 übernommen werden. Eine neue Aufhängung und HRE Felgen, mit aufgezogenen Michelin PS2 Reifen, sind ebenso im Paket enthalten. Natürlich legt HPE auch Hand an das Aussehen des Camaros, so wird ein Bodykit verbaut, welches im unteren Bereich viel Carbon enthalten wird. Eine neue Frontpartie mit Aluminium Grill, neue Scheinwerfer und eine neue Motorhaube, auch von der ZR-1, bilden den Abschluss. Um den 705 PS Camaro zu beherrschen, ist im Preis von 109.500 Dollar, der ein tägige Sicherheitskurs, bereits enthalten! Nächste Woche kann man sein Geldbörsel zücken und bei der Barret-Jackson Auktion sein Glück versuchen um die ersten HPE700 bei Hennessey zu bestellen! Die Woche darauf kann ein jedermann Bestellungen aufgeben.



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 â„¢ 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.
