The 2010 Hennessey HPE700 LS9 Camaro Convertible was released in a limited edition, which has already been sold out, but another 24 units will be built and released in order to please the customers. The 2011 edition will further feature, besides the basic elements of the 2010 model, a convertible one, arriving in showrooms in the spring of 2011, with an increased power, provided by revised boost levels and a more efficient fuel system,thus producing 755 bhp and 763 lb-ft of torque.
John Hennessey, a proud founder and president truly hopes that the 24 units will be sold just as the others were, mainly because 775 hp can provied nothing but power, speed, pleasure and most important, safety with an adjustable coilover suspension, HPE lightweight wheels, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel and the performance list is beautifully completed by a carbon fiber body kit, offering the car a particular look.
Its pricing was established at $132,500 and the order can be made either directly through HPE or one of Hennessey`s car dealers.
With the limited production run of Hennessey's 2010 HPE700 Camaro long since sold-out, the company has announced they will build another 24 units for the 2011 model year. This latest run of HPE700's will include the addition of the new convertible model (from Chevrolet) and an increase in power from its supercharged 6.2L LS9 V8 - the same engine found in the Corvette ZR1.
The 2011 HPE700 gets its additional power from revised boost levels and a more robust fuel system, delivering 755 bhp and 763 lb-ft of torque. This 30 horsepower increase over 2010 will also help move the convertible's extra weight, while the large 15 inch brakes from last year remain to bring it back to a stop quickly.
As the Camaro convertible arrives in showrooms in the spring of 2011, the 6-speed manual SS model will become available alongside its hardtop brethren to become the basis for the HPE700 LS9 Camaro transformation.
HPE founder and president, John Hennessey said, "We have already sold a several of our 2011 HPE700's in hardtop form, increasing the potential for the convertible LS9 Camaro to become an even rarer option than before". "I expect that we will sell all 24 units just as we did in 2010. However this time we will probably sell-out even sooner as the convertible option will certainly be attractive - especially with 755 horsepower.
In addition to the upgraded LS9 engine, the HPE700 also includes an adjustable coilover suspension, larger sway bars, HPE lightweight wheels, larger 15-inch brakes with 6-piston front calipers, stainless steel long tube headers, painted hockey stripe, Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel, CarbonAero" carbon fiber body kit and more to complete the car's distinct look and performance characteristics.
As with the 2010 model year, the 2011 HPE700 LS9 Camaro will be limited to just 24 units, with no set allocation between coupe and convertible. Pricing for the complete HPE700 upgrade, including the base vehicle, is $132,500 and can be ordered directly through HPE or one of Hennessey's authorized Chevrolet dealers.
