Hennessey Performance has developed for the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 Stingray HPE500 Upgrade with the aim to make it even more exceptional. The model will be produced in limited edition run of up to 500 units.

The vehicle has been enhanced in terms of performance and now delivers up to 507 horsepower (373 kW) and 702 Nm (518 lb-ft) of torque, when compared to stock’s 460 hp (338 kW) and 630 Nm (465 lb-ft). This makes it easy for the Corvette now to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. Also astonishing is the sound that the car produces.

New 2011 Hennessey HPE700 Camaro Gets Convertible Option and 755 Horsepower

SEALY, TEXAS – With the limited production run of Hennessey’s 2010 HPE700 Camaro long since sold-out, the company has announced they will build another 24 units for the 2011 model year. This latest run of HPE700′s will include the addition of the new convertible model (from Chevrolet) and an increase in power from its supercharged 6.2L LS9 V8 – the same engine found in the Corvette ZR1.

The 2011 HPE700 gets its additional power from revised boost levels and a more robust fuel system, delivering 755 bhp and 763 lb-ft of torque. This 30 horsepower increase over 2010 will also help move the convertible’s extra weight, while the large 15 inch brakes from last year remain to bring it back to a stop quickly.

As the Camaro convertible arrives in showrooms in the spring of 2011, the 6-speed manual SS model will become available alongside its hardtop brethren to become the basis for the HPE700 LS9 Camaro transformation. Read more!

2010 Hennessey HPE800 Twin-Turbo Camaro

2010 Hennessey HPE800 Twin-Turbo Camaro - Muscle Cars BlogFrom hennesseyperformanceblog.com: When this Cyber Gray 2010 Camaro SS arrived at Hennessey, it was originally outfitted as a supercharged HPE650 with one notable difference — a forged, low compression 415 cubic inch LS3 stroker motor. Well, when you have a love of horsepower and a rock solid foundation to build on, the urge to take things further is hard to resist.

After all, the same 415 stroker is at the heart of the Hennessey HPE800 Twin Turbo Camaro upgrade, so determining the method of attack for producing big numbers was a no brainer.

After transforming the HPE650 to a twin turbo HPE800 and making well over it’s advertised numbers at a super-conservative 11 psi, the time came at the request of the customer to increase the boost and have a little fun.

So with a few more pounds of boost — 16 psi total — the HPE800 Camaro easily put down nearly 850 horsepower to the rear wheels and just a hair over 800 lb-ft of torque (847 rwhp / 801 lb-ft tq to be exact). Factor in your basic drivetrain loss for a 6-speed manual Camaro and the horsepower numbers hit right near 1,000 HP mark!

But what makes the numbers even better is the conservative and SAFE nature of the Hennessey twin turbo setup. A strong motor, efficient turbo design and proper fuel support means the HPE800 (and even the 427 cubic inch LSX-powered HPE1000) Camaro can be tuned for bird-dog reliability while making outrageous amounts of power.
