the HPE700 does it in 3.5 so my guess would be 3.2? around there? not sure though, just a rough guess.

Its MINE so don't get any drool on the paint...

You'll get to see much more of it soon, we're still wrapping up the paint and some appearance stuff. Performance metrics will eventually get released but keep in mind that 0-60 etc times are usually limited more by traction than available HP so I wouldn't expect too much of an improvement over Hennesseys LS9 car in 0-60 times.

Those dyno numbers were made on 93 octane pump gas and the the tune is VERY conservative and has already shown that it holds up well to plenty of heat soak. Just a tic over 11psi of boost needed to throw down 740hp at the wheel! NICE! Its essentially the same build that will be used for the upcoming HPE1000 though we're keeping mine an 800 because they're graciously giving me a really nice warranty. (Its actually making 870 hp if you do the math!) Gotta say I'm VERY happy with the Hennessey folks and all the work they've put into building my car.

LOTS of good stuff went on this car and I can't wait to get it home and start driving it!

How many people have called Hennessey Performance and inquired on the prices for the different HPE Camaro builds they offer? I'm curious about how much they cost.

'Built' block based on my OEM LS3. Stroked, forged, lowered compression, balanced, Polydyn coated internals, massaged heads with upgraded valves/springs, upgraded fuel system, upgraded oil cooler... Lots of goodies on the suspension, some Seibon CF pieces, a little custom paint and other 'good' stuff too.

We've done quite a lot to the car that wouldn't be on a 'normal' HPE800 so I'd rather not muddy the waters. Heh! Hennessey will post pricing for the package on their website once they've figured out how they're going to market it (if they haven't already). I started out to do a 'built' HPE 650 then we changed paths to the twin turbo so my situation is a bit complicated.

I will say that building a 'project car' usually ends up costing more than you set out to spend but in the end, if you're lucky, you end up with something unique and hopefully very special.

Here's the link to a new dyno video for a 'fun' pull we did a few days ago... 1000HP!
