If you want your Camaro ZL1 to really reach stratospheric levels of power, then Hennessey is the place to visit.
The Texan builder released a short video footage of a Camaro ZL1 strapped onto their dyno, just after they’ve done playing with its engine.
Hennessey took the 580hp Camaro to town, ditching its supercharger for a pair of turbos as they installed the so-called HPE1200 upgrade in it. That’s right; the number represents how many horses are now unleashed from the 6.2-litre V8.
After the – now twin-turbo – Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 had some race fuel for breakfast and crank the boost up to 20psi, the dyno showed an astonishing 1145hp at the wheels. At-the-wheels. Let that sink in for a bit.
If power corrupts, then Hennessey is our kind of politician.
