No Camaro Z/28, no worries: Hennessey prices 562-hp HPE550 Camaro package

So we all know by now that the 556-hp Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 is on the back burner of GM’s product plans as they look for ways to reduce manufacturing costs. But there are people out there that are still looking for more than the 426-hp offered by the Camaro SS.

Tuner Hennessey has come to the rescue. Hennessey is offering its HPE550 upgrade for the Camaro SS that allows the GM LS3 V8 to produce a whopping 562-hp with a maximum torque of 557 lb-ft. 0 to 60 mph comes in just 3.9 seconds with a top speed of 119 mph.

If you’re the do-it-yourself type, Hennessey will send you a HPE550 package for $18,950 plus shipping. If you’d rather have Hennessey work on your Camaro SS labor costs will bring the pricing up to $24,950 (of course you’d have to provide your $31,000 Camaro SS).

If 562-hp isn’t enough, Hennessey is also offering the HPE700 Camaro package which uses the LS9 Supercharged V8 that is found in the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. The engine is tuned to produce 705-hp with a maximum torque of 717 lb-ft. The LS9 upgrade will set you back $39,500.

Oh, and if that’s not enough, Hennessey is also offering 850-hp and a 1,000-hp twin-turbo upgrade for $54,500 and $59,500, respectively.
