Cool HPE550 glimpse on the track

Ok guys so I want you all to see this clip and listen to it VERY VERY CAREFULLY. If you all know Pedders Suspension had been working with GM on 4 "Special" Camaros in Auburn, MI a month ago or so. Mind you with all the stuff GM has been going through lately and how well the public has responded to the new Camaro, there is no doubt a Z28 coming at some point. But I really believe this is a Z28 in disquise. Listen around the 0:10 mark. You will clearly hear a supercharge whine. This was posted by Pedders in July. I saw this just last night as I was looking into their products. For those of you that kept the faith here is what could be the first glimpse at the future Z28!





video quote: "Yellow Camaro SS on a race track. All I can say is it has Pedders Xa coilovers, radius rod bushes and alignment. Where this is and who the car belongs to is mystery to me. LMAO I was there. I was in the car. My guys shot the video, but that is all I can remember..."

Pedders is secretly working on a GM project. This could easily be a Z28 if it is in fact a GM product. This is the most compelling evidence I've seen thus far, if we can verify that this is in fact a stock Camaro. I think it would help if we could get a close-up of those rims. That would tell us if this is a GM product.

That's exactly why I was referring to the wheels. I wasn't sure whose those were. From a distance, they look like they could be GM wheels, but the lip says otherwise from the side camera.

No its HPE's track. Look on Youtube for the ZR1 ZR750 and its the same track. Still great though!

Hennessey is a remarkable company. Why would any of you be sad? The HPE550 is a performance car with a warranty. Why do you think a Z28 would be better?

If Shakespeare were alive today, he'd have written, "A Camaro would still be a Camaro if called by any other name."

I would like to see the Z28, too. I'm really hoping that GM makes it or announces it before I am ready to order, but that won't stop me from buying at my time. I have performance goals, and I will meet them either way, but I hope that GM makes it happen. I also hope that Z28 holdouts don't expect it to beat aftermarket alternatives by some of the great engineers of Hennessey, Lingenfelter, Nickey, or anyone else.
