The Hennessey Chevrolet Camaro SS has hit a blistering 202 mph!

As the first 2016 Chevrolet Camaro to break the 200-mph mark, Hennessey Performance gave the Camaro SS its HPE750 supercharger upgrade that outfits the LT1 V8 engine with 751 horsepower and 643 pound-feet of torque. Compatible with both the factory automatic and manual transmissions, the HPE750 gives the Camaro SS a zero-to-60 time of 3.1 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 10.7 seconds at 129 mph with drag radial rear tires.

There’s a lengthy list of modifications as part of the package, but main highlights include a TVS2300 supercharger system running 7 psi boost, 1.75-inch stainless steel long-tube headers, high-flow catalytic converters and a stainless steel mid-pipe exhaust upgrade. The heads also get built with dual valve springs and titanium retainers along with an HPE hydraulic roller camshaft upgrade and hydraulic lifter upgrade.

    HOLY S***, that’s fast! 751 horsepower and 3.1 seconds to 60 are nuts. I wonder how street-able this car is.

    I owned a 1996 Buick Road Master with the LT-1 V8 chipped it for 350 HP. I was beating many from light to light in short races. It went to the junkyard with 211,000 miles. I got plenty of tickets. 751 HP is just going to get someone killed or plenty of tickets.

    I think it will get people tickets AND killed. A Chrysler Hellcat Challenger is craze powerful, I can’t imagine an even lighter car with 40-plus more horsepower.

    I know people are STUPID, I remember the guy waited for 6 months to get a Hellcat and he had it one hour and totaled it. I think he even forgot to put insurance on it. LOL.

    That’s 5 mph slower than the stang and this had more work done.
