Just so you are aware, the suspension on my car is not stock. I have a front and rear coilover setup, better swaybars, QA1 adj. struts/shocks and a couple of other suspension goodies. While this does not help with weight transfer at the strip, I'm pretty it can more than hold it's own in the twisties. I've not had it officially measured, but I would guess it would be pretty close to 1.00g on the skidpad. It sure surprised a Copperhead Viper a couple of weeks ago in the curvy road to my house.

If you have to ask "How much?" You can't afford it. (I'll guess it's gonna be $80,000 + )

Ohhh yeah! He was accused of stripping cars for parts wasn't he?

That's RIDICULOUS!!!! ly awesome!!
What I'm really anxious to see is how much power can be made with just a bolt on SC. Thats more in the price range of what most of us can actually afford and do

A one-day performance driving course at Lonestar Motorsports Park, next door to the Hennessey production facility/showroom in the Houston area, is tossed in with the purchase of the HPE700.

I would think, quite a bit, but you're going to be limited in how much power you are able to make by the make-up of your shortblock.

With just the addition of the KB blower on my GT500, I picked up 173rwhp (445rwhp stock vs. 618rwhp). Depending on what pulley I want to run and the type of fuel I put in the tank, I can easily make upwards of 775rwhp with no other changes being made from stock to the car. My current rwhp/rwtq numbers are made through the stock exhaust manifolds, conveters and exhaust system.

Given the extra cubic inches you are getting with the Camaro, I would think there are even better numbers waiting to be found.

You won't be able to touch either one for less than $80K (maybe even more), so who cares? Way too rich for my blood!

A quick search will reveal that this dude is a complete prick. However, he is pretty much equal-opportunity even towards the Dodge guys.

anyone that drops an LS9 in a Camaro is ok with me
and yes he is a prick

That car is SICK!!! Looks like everyone wants a piece of the Camaro pie. Hennessy has a bad rep, but that sounds like a bad ass car. I'll add that to my "If I won the lottery list". I can't wait see what Lingenfelter has up thier sleeve for the Camaro.

I kinda hate to see the Camaro brand getting whored out to every last tuner and custom builder like Mustang. It's kind of ironic that Saleen and Hennessey are the first two builders to get their hands on the car.

Hennessey got all the CGM Camaros. That's why nobody has seen one.

The exterior body package is a seperate option. It also comes with hideaway headlights.

I will laugh if GM slaps the LS9 in this car two years down the road and offers it at 30- 40000$ less than this one.

Will Cost $109,500 !!! wtf

The HPE700 is a lot of car, and to help drivers reign it in, a 1-day performance driving course is included in the asking price of $109,500.

The first orders will be accepted next week to registered bidders at the Barret-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ with regular orders being taken the following week. See the rest of Hennessey's official details in the press release after the jump.
