Smokin Camaro: Hennessey HPE550 Supercharged Chevy Camaro SS


FOR FULL HENNESSEY ARTICLE @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com Automotive lust in America means blown Camaros. You know, like the red ’69s on every cover of Car Craft. A big BDS 10-71 supercharger sticking through the hood and massive M/T drag slicks under tubs in back. Let the rest of the world dream of Ferraris, Lamborghinis and dinky little British two-seaters. In this country speed doesn’t look like that. It looks like this. This is the Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) “HPE550″ supercharged 2010 Camaro SS. That’s right, it’s a blown Camaro. The first blown 2010 Chevy Camaro. And that makes it the very newest version of a true American icon. Ranks right up there with the Beach Boys, buckets of deep fried chicken and our incomprehensible Internal Revenue Code. Be proud of it. We Americans invented the greatest car ever: The loud, tire-smoking, V8-powered, front-engine, rear-wheel-drive muscle machine. And we should celebrate the accomplishment just as John Hennessey is, by building more.

Smokin Camaro: Hennessey HPE550 Supercharged Chevy Camaro SS — 14 Comments

  1. imports from japan are nothing but ugly , slow , and a waste of money. (LFA) cough*

  2. i have to disagree the new zr1 has the best muscle car sound! i love the stance of the camaro though.

  3. @Corvette35000
    General Motors….an Italian company that makes American cars.

  4. @Corvette35000 see my vids to learn herbs like kelp,kale,violets,maca etC :D

  5. thats a pretty cool mustang, what kind of motor does it have? i wanna say a sc 7.0?

  6. My best friends dad bought that car. #1 car seen here they just rebuilt it, new tires and brakes and sent it to us. It’s had a lot more done to it since. It’s basically a hpe700

  7. I don’t care much for the exhaust sound, I think a deeper note, like that of a Flowmaster system would be better. My Hot Rod Camaro ( 1 of only 36 built ) has a 4:10 gear, at 80 MPH in 6th gear I am only @ 2200 RPM’s. I had it up to 145 MPH before shifting to 6th.

  8. It’s a heavy car….that’s why it seems like it needs shorter gear… I like it but not for that price point. 45-50K max.

  9. Can’t wait to see what Hennessy will do with the 2012 Camaro ZL1 coming out this spring, it’s better than the SS

  10. @M16A2evans
    I concur…However your sissy 360whp is no match for my 2G Eclipse puttin down 562awhp consecutively…Now on to the supercharged Camaro…Step up my friend…I’d love nothing more to add your badge to my fender win column…
