Hennessey HPE700 Camaro Makes First Dyno Run

Remember Hennessey’s plan to stuff the LS9 from a new Corvette ZR1 into a Camaro? Well, the tuning firm managed to strap its HPE700 mega-muscle car to a dynamometer, and the results are nothing short of impressive.

<;P class=MsoNormal target="_blank">As the name suggested, the tuned Camaro is rated at approximately 700 hp, but when measured at the rear wheels, the car is still good for a whopping 645 hp. Torque measured at the rear wheels is a chunky 653 lb-ft, and we love how it seems to be delivered across a wide RPM spectrum.

<;P class=MsoNormal target="_blank">All this power will cost you, however. Only 24 HPE700 Camaros will be built, and each is expected to carry a price tag of approximately $109,000. To watch the dyno run for yourself, click here to jump to Hennessey’s YouTube video.
