Hennessey HPE550 Camaro vs GT500 vs SRT8

Great video of a side-by-side drag race by MotorTrend.



Guess who wins

Pretty sure this was just released yesterday on YouTube. Have you seen this before, I take it?

The SRT8 was just so far behind it was embarrassing! That thing either needs to lose a lot of weight or have an engine swap.

I can;t watch that here at work, so assuming it is that weak MotorTrend Comparison, putting a STOCK SRT8 against a SUPERCHARGED GT500 and a SUPERCHARGED TUNER Camaro, what'd you expect? Why not get a Saleen, HEnnesey or Mr Norms Challenger? The price would have been comparable to the Camaro and they'd had as much as 600 HP.......

Loved the video, Great editing.

My only complaint is the SRT8 should have been supercharged... would have made the race a bit more fair.

Camaro would have still come out on top though.

Indeed, I would like to see a comparison of a tuned/pulley GT500 against the Henessey Camaro, just to make it more interesting on that front and the to see if the respond well wtill to those mods.

Well really, we as Camaro lovers still gotta hand it to the King of the stock factory production rides--------the GT500. Chevy needs a factory response in the same price range to be apples to apples

We already know the GT500 responds to a Pulley and Street tune, moving the GT500 to >550Rwhp, which makes medium to high 11's at 120-124mph (Still under $50k total).

Does that come with a warranty? Or should I say can you trust them?

Yeah, 3 year warranty. Or apparently you can buy the parts for $10k and install them yourself (I don't know if you still get the warranty).

Not really a fair race. However, it's all for fun so no one should get offended.
