SEMA 2009: Hennessey HPE700 is a Camaro, ZR1 Love Child

One of just two vehicles worthy to flank the Mobil 1 booth at the 2009 SEMA Show is the Hennessey HPE700 LS9 Camaro. As the name suggests, under the hood there's a supercharged LS9 motor lifted from a Corvete ZR1. The easy-to-remember HPE700 name isn't entirely accurate, however, as the engine has been tuned somewhat to deliver closer to 725-hp. As for torque, it's rated at 741 ft-lbs from just 3200 rpm.

Hennessey claims the ZR1-powered Camaro will scoot to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and run the quarter mile in 11.3 seconds at 126 mph.

Talking with John Hennessey he told us that the HPE700 is very much the theoretical love child of a Camaro and a Corvette ZR1, with that theme continuing to more places than just under the hood. The car also gets lots of carbon fiber parts, like a carbon rear lip spoiler, carbon side skirts and a carbon fiber front splitter. There's even a ZR1-inspired hood with a glass section to view the powerful LS9.
