Hennessey-modified 2016 Camaro SS hits 202 mph: Video


Tuner extraordinaire Hennessey's latest Chevrolet Camaro SS has officially joined the 200 mph club. Scratch that... the HPE750 Camaro SS is actually in the 202 mph club.

Piloted by Brian Smith at the Continental Tire Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas, the modded Camaro SS features a 751-horsepower supercharged V-8 engine. Hennessey says that this car is the first 2016 Camaro to break the 200 mph mark, an impressive feat for a model that has only been on the market for a few months.

The HPE750's TVS2300 supercharger doesn't require all that much boost—just 7.0 psi—but just about every other feature of the factory LT1 motor has been beefed up.

Hennessey says the HPE750 package Camaro SS sprints to 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.1 seconds and it will keep going to pass the quarter mile in a mere 10.7 seconds.

One thing to note is that Hennessey says the 202 mph Camaro utilized a 150-hp shot of nitrous oxide in its impressive run. 

While that sounds like a lot of power under the hood of Chevy's latest Camaro, Hennessey recently announced a 1,000-hp version

Oh, and if you're a Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] fan looking for bragging rights, you'll probably remember that the HPE750 package for the current Mustang managed to hit 207.9 mph last year.
