Post Hennessey 562HP Camaro package (HPE550) limited edition announced

HENNESSEY PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING ANNOUNCES LIMITED EDITION 562 HP HIGH PERFORMANCE PACKAGE FOR THE 2010 CAMARO

March 30, 2009

SEALY, TX – Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE), well known for their extreme performance sports cars and muscle cars, announces their Limited Edition 2010 HPE550 Camaro.

At the heart of the beast is a supercharger system added atop the LS3 V8 making 6 psi boost combined with a Corsa stainless steel exhaust system and custom engine management calibration from HPE. This upgrade system results in 562 bhp and 557 lb-ft torque. Rounding out the package, HPE adds a set of light weight 20 inch wheels, Hennessey's Cam-Aero ™ body upgrades include: Rear lip spoiler, carbon side rocker panels and front splitter, Hennessey graphics package and premium floor mats.

Hennessey plans to offer up to 500 units for the 2010 model year. Each HPE550 will come with its own unique serial number which will be displayed on a plaque located on the dash and under the hood. Other options available from HPE include: Larger brakes, suspension upgrades, upgraded interiors along with larger wheels and tires. HPE will also be offering more powerful engine upgrades including twin turbo systems producing up to 1000 hp.

HPE is also offering a modified version of the LS9 motor which currently powers the 638 bhp Corvette ZR1. The company has been testing their 705 bhp variant of the LS9 since February using retired GM engineer and racer, John Heinricy as their development engineer and test driver. Heinricy recently drove Hennessey's ZR1 at the Texas Mile to a record setting speed of 196.7 mph in the standing mile.

"The HPE550 upgrade package gives 2010 Camaro owners the kind of power they are going to want, especially when they roll up on a Shelby GT500 Mustang", said John Hennessey, President and CEO of Hennessey Performance Engineering. "We will also be offering an extensive list of aftermarket performance parts and accessories for the 2010 Camaro. From mild to wild, new Camaro owners will be able to order air induction systems, exhaust and header systems as well as supercharger systems, suspension kits and more.

HPE550 buyers will also receive a 1/2-day performance driving course at Lonestar Motorsports Park – a ¼ mile dragstrip facility located adjacent to Hennessey's 24,000 square foot production facility and showroom. The HPE550 Camaro is available from select Chevrolet dealers as well as directly from Hennessey Performance Engineering. Production will begin in May, 2009 and orders are now being taken.

Located just west of Houston Texas at the Lonestar Motorsports Park complex, HPE has been building American supercars for nearly two decades with its Veyron-beating Venom Vipers, Ford GT's and recently released Dodge Challengers.

Thier website says starting at $57,900 so I would think if you take out the base price of a 1SS you are looking at $20,000 to $25,000 as a start.

Either way...expensive! It has a warranty though and says your local Chevy dealer can order or you can go directly to them.

It'll be interesting to see one and see the numbers from it.

just take all of the parts off your car that are being replaced prior to shipping it to his company.

That way he cant part your car out and let it sit while nothing happens

After he strips the cars down for spare parts you will be left with a pile of junk. Why is GM having anything to do with them?

I could build that car for half the price...Do not throw away your money on companies like that.
Lingenfelter is better, but you pay A LOT for that name also!

I bet it's a new 1900 Maggy'.

I could've swore I read in a post buy one of the Maggy' guys, on another forum, that he's running 8 psi with a TVS 1900 and got 475 to the tire. Maybe Hennnnneeeesssseeeeyyyy is running a 2300 at low boost. That would almost make sense, as that 8 psi TVS 1900 would be making probably around 550 at the flywheel.

Meh - I'd just find me a TVS 1900/2300, catback, maybe upgrade the OEM rotors (if that's even necessary) and a tune and call it a day. Like you guys are saying - you're paying for the name. If that's what ya' like, all the power to ya'.

I agree.
But, make sure you guys do the 2300, and NOT 1900.

Thats what i'm sayin. Why Why Why would you pay extra for the badges you could have your own supercharger installed. As far as a warranty I'm sure GMPP are gonna offer something.

Good for people with more money than sense.

How much profit do you suppose he's making per Camaro? $10,000?
