Introducing the 2011 HPE600 Supercharged Camaro Convertible
March 7, 2011
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SEALY, TEXAS – Hennessey Performance (HPE) introduces the company’s first 2011 HPE600 Supercharged Camaro convertible. Pounding the pavement with a 602 bhp supercharged V8, the HPE600 is also the first 2011 Chevrolet Camaro convertible to hit the streets with a full treatment of aftermarket performance upgrades.
Hennessey began offering its power-addicting upgrades to the latest Chevy Camaro when the car was introduced in April of 2009. Since that time, HPE has built hundreds of Camaros with over 550 horsepower for owners across the globe.
“We were excited to receive one of the first 2011 Camaro SS convertibles from Chevrolet,” says company founder and president, John Hennessey. “It was only natural that we would take the new Camaro SS convertible and upgrade it with our very popular HPE600 Supercharged upgrade. If having a 602 horsepower Camaro is cool and fun to drive then being able to drop the top takes the sensation of speed and the classis sound of American-muscle to a whole new level.” Read more!
GENEVA – Ford Motor Co.’s design studios worldwide will provide styling ideas for an American icon: the next generation Mustang.
“It is a common process we [now] use on every vehicle,” Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president for global product development, said today at the Geneva auto show.
Ford’s next-generation pony car will be the first Mustang with styling themes proposed by studios in Europe, Australia and other regions. Previously, Ford’s U.S. studio was solely responsible for Mustang design.
“When we embark on a new product, particularly one that is all new, it involves all of the studios. Then J [Mays] and the design team pick the best of those themes,” Kuzak told Automotive News. Mays is Ford’s global design chief. Ford adopted the global design approach three years ago. Read more!
Chrysler announced the introduction of the 2011 Dodge Charger Enforcer, one mean looking, and hopefully very capable police car.
To be made available to all law enforcement agencies across Canada in the coming weeks for testing and such, the Enforcer brings with it a 3.6l Pentastar V6 engine as standard. Already one sight you don’t want to see in the rear-view mirror, the scary front end of the Charger might also hide a 5.7l HEMI V8 engine, which will send after you a lot more horses than the smaller unit.
