2010 Chevy Camaro SS Drunk on Hennessey


Hennessey 2010 Camaro

Looks like Humpty Hump didn’t drink up all the Hennessey on the shelves. Texas-based Hennessey Performance got their hands on some serious juice and poured it under the hood of a 2010 Chevy Camaro, building a supercharged muscle car monster that’s meaner than a sauced steelworker at a Pennsylvania VFW.

Hennessey CTS-V: So Fast, On-Star Called


It’s not very often that a car is so blindingly fast that it’s on board computer management systems thinks there’s a problem. Well if it’s going to happen to anyone, it’s going to happen to John Hennessy and his crew. Watch as their 700 pony-pushing CTS-V runs an 11 second quarter-mile, and then procedes to alert On-Star because .99 G’s of acceleration registers as a “vehicle event”.

PS: This CTS-V SCREAMS!

Hennessey Dyno’s their LS9 Powered Camaro


Hennessey Camaro LS9 Dyno

Well Hennessey did it; they were able to squeeze the LS9 into a Camaro and they have officially finished tuning that beast. Here’s the video of the first dyno… can you say torque-tastic?

Remember that Hennessey LS9 Camaro?


It’s alive and it sounds awesome!

It Fits! ZR1 LS9 in the New Camaro


2010 Hennessey LS9 Camaro

Hennessey announced today that it was able to squeeze in the 640 horsepower LS9 into the engine bay of the new Camaro. By the looks of the photos, the engine fits quite nicely.  This is a considerable upgrade from the Camaro’s optional V8, but Hennessey wasn’t happy with just 640 ponies. Oh no, they’ll be working on pushing out over 700 to the wheels.

Only 24 LS9 Camaro’s will be made by Hennessy and 11 of them have already been pre-ordered. If you got a couple hundred grand laying around and fancy the new 2010 Camaro, get on the horn and talk to Mr. Hennessey. Pics after the jump!

UPDATE: HENNESSEY PRESS RELEASE AFTER THE JUMP – Performance Specs Included!

Hennessey Gets Gozilla Drunk Off it’s Own Power, Run’s High 10’s


Hennessey GTR700 - Nissan GT-R
The Hennessey tuning shop is known for making Big power come out of monstrous engines.  From their 1,000+ horsepower twin-turbo Dodge Vipers to their track-demolishing Corvettes, John knows his muscle cars.  But that’s why his work on the GT-R is special; it’s not the traditional naturally-aspirated V8 muscle that’s capable of producing gobs of torque and astronomical amounts of horsepower.  Rather, the GT-R is a highly tuned and balanced V6 that makes lots of horsepower per liter, making it super quick around the track.  But like what many tuners in this world have asked; what would happen if we gave Godzilla even more power?
