2011 Hennessey HPE700 Camaro Convertible Revealed w/755HP

John Hennessey and his crew never stop tuning the latest offerings from General Motors and this time they choose to reveal the Hennessey HPE700 Camaro Convertible sporting 755 horsepower. Just like the previous HPE700 Camaro coupe, the new convertible features a ‘CarbonAero’ body kit, 20-inch wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires and the Corvette ZR1’s LS9 engine under the hood.

To push the HPE700 Camaro over the normal ZR1 power numbers, Hennessey upgraded it with a cold-air induction system, upgraded pulleys, and high-flow fuel injectors. Usually this kind of stuff does the trick for such a beast-of-a-motor. Not to mention, the other upgrades include adjustable coil-over suspension, upgraded sway bars and a Brembo braking system with 15-inch rotors.

The output of the HPE700 Camaro Convertible V8 enigine is 755hp and 763 foot-pounds of torque. The HPE700 Camaro Coupe already could acceleration from 0 to 60mph in 3.3 seconds and run the quarter mile in 10.9 seconds at 130mph.  Hopefully the convertible version will be close to those figures.
