Hennessey HPE1000 Camaro

2016-camaro-ss

It seems like the reach of John Hennessey and his masterful mind for power mods is never ending. Just when we hear about his 1000 plus horsepower Hellcats, he follows up with an equally ridiculous 1000 hp Camaro. In base form the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS packs a solid 455hp. But pair that with Hennessey’s HPE1000 package, the force induced Camaro skyrockets to the 1000hp mark.

Camaro owners who have a stack of cash burning in their pocket can hand over their car to Hennessey accompanied by a briefcase full of green to the tune of $65,000USD and in return their car will come back with a motor stroked to 6.8L, forged pistons, billet connecting rods, fully ported and race prepped heads, a supercharger, and a custom tune. According to Hennessey, the stock transmission, either auto or manual, is fully capable in handling the extra power.

Customers can start ordering the kit now and go on the hunt for some cats.


Hennessey 1032hp HPE1000 Hellcat

There’s one person who doesn’t know when enough is enough and that is John Hennessey and we openly thank him for that. The folks over at Dodge brought us the 707hp 6.2L supercharged V8 Hellcat which is a tire shredding beast of a car. Then along comes Mr. Hennessey who says, “well that’s not enough” and slaps on a set of turbochargers. The result, a 1032hp and 987lb/ft of torque beast. Hennessey calls this new kit the HPE1000, conveniently rounded off for branding purposes.

The boosted Charger and Challenger Hellcats will move from 0-100kph in a mere 2.7 seconds and smokes the quarter mile in just 9.9 seconds. That right there is a whole lot of car! But wait, it’s not all about the performance. Actually it is. The additional add ons are purely cosmetic with the HPE1000 package which includes twin turbo badging, a signed builder plaque in the engine bay, and a set of custom floor mats.

The HPE1000 package will set you back $55,000USD plus the price of the car itself. The best part of anything that comes out of the Hennessey group is that they will provide you with a one-year/12,000-mile limited warranty over and beyond the one provided by the manufacturer.
