Hennessey Performance will unveil its most powerful Corvette Stingray built up to date at the Boca Raton Concours in south Florida on 21st of February. At the heart of Hennessey Chevrolet Corvette Stingray HPE700 Twin Turbo is its twin turbo system that uses a pair of precision ball bearing 62-mm turbochargers producing 7 psi of boost pressure.
The HPE system has been handcrafted and uses mandrel-bent stainless steel tubing and dual turbo wastegates. Twin blow-off valves on the intercooler’s TIG-welded aluminum plenum are also present.

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!
