Hennessey will let you order the Camaro with a manual or automatic transmission, and as a coupe or convertible, but the color scheme is fixed: black paint with black leather upholstery. Other visual dress-up comes in the form of 20-inch Hennessey wheels wearing Pirelli P-Zero tires, serial plaques and 20th Anniversary Edition badges, a redesigned engine cover, and a new splitter and side skirts from CarbonAero. The car rides on suspension that has been lowered one inch below the stock ride height.
The 20th-anniversary HPE650 Camaros are fitted with a supercharged version of the 6.2-liter V-8 engine, allowing the mill to produce a whopping 655 hp. Hennessey says that’s enough power to rocket the car to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and through the quarter-mile in 11.7 seconds at 122 mph. Those numbers are possible thanks to a TVS supercharger, a less-restrictive exhaust, larger fuel injectors, a reprogrammed engine computer, new camshafts, and revised cylinder heads.
