American tuners Hennessey Performance Engineering has just unveiled the HPE700, which blends a standard 2010 Camaro SS with the supercharged LS9 V8 from the Corvette ZR1. The stock performance from the monster Corvette motor was not enough so HPE has tuned the LS9 to produce 705 hp and 717 lb-ft torque. That should make for an awesome performer over the quarter-mile, or simply a competent tyre shredding machine.
Other performance goodies include 15-inch carbon ceramic brakes lifted from the ZR1, upgraded suspension bits and HRE alloy rims wrapped in Michelin PS2 rubber. Cosmetic changes have also been made and the HPE700 has inherited the infamous see-through bonnet from the ZR1, along with a body package that includes a full carbon fibre kit and a unique front end with hideaway headlights and a billet aluminum grille.
The HPE700 is a lot of car to handle, and to help drivers keep it pointing straight, a 1-day performance driving course is included in the asking price of $109,500 US dollars.
