The first details of the 2011 HPE700 Camaro Convertible from the Hennessey Performance stables are out.  As has been the case with the company’s earlier HPE700 coupe model,  the upcoming  the convertible will come with a CarbonAero body kit that would comprise a front splitter, a rear diffuser and revised side skirts.

A  Corvette ZR1-sourced LS9 engine will power the model , and the engine will be outfitted with cold air induction system, upgraded pulleys, and high-flow fuel injectors.

The 6.2-liter V8 has been designed in such a way that it returns 755 hp (563 kW / 765 PS) and 763 lb-ft (1,033 Nm) of torque . That means a clear increase of 117 hp (87 kW / 119 PS) and 159 lb-ft (215 Nm), thereby enabling the car to speed from 0-60 mph in 3.3 seconds and run the quarter mile in 10.9 seconds at 130 mph.

Further, the car will boast of a colored hockey stick side strip, and 20-inch alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tires.  An adjustable coil-over suspension, upgraded sway bars and a Brembo braking system with 15-inch rotors have also been included.

The company is however thinking of rolling out only 24 units of the car, be it a coupe or the convertible variant.
