Hennessey reveals the potential of its HPE800 Twin Turbo Camaro: as the name suggests, the latest creation of American tuner has been well equipped with two turbochargers, and other “minor little things”, able to squeeze out of the Chevrolet Camaro V8 – 815 hp and 1067 Nm of torque. Curl stuff from the asphalt.
Not enough? Hennessey has the solution to this also. It’s called HPE1000 and mounts a twin-turbo version of the 7-liter V8 in the Corvette Z06 and other improvements to intake and exhaust. In this case the power output is 847 hp and almost 1100 Nm of torque. Just over 30 hp difference then? Not for idea HPE1000 values were measured at the wheel. This means that the motor shaft power is higher by at least 10-15%.
