As if the production 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS wasn’t already powerful and aggressive looking enough, Hennessey Performance Engineering thought they could do more with the new Chevy muscle car. The Limited-Edition 2010 HPE700 Camaro gets its power from GM’s new LS9 Supercharged V8 that is found in the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. However, HPE tuned the engine to extract a total of 705-hp with a maximum torque of 717 lb-ft.

The HPE700 Camaro also gets optional 15-inch carbon brakes from the Corvette ZR1, lightweight HRE wheels with Michelin PS2 tires and full suspension upgrades. Aerodynamics packages include Hennessey’s Cam-Aero body upgrades including: a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, carbon fiber side rocker panels, carbon fiber front splitter and a new front fascia with hideaway-look headlights and front billet grille. The HPE700 also features the transparent hood design that shows off the LS9 powerplant.

Hennessey will be auctioning off the first HPE700 Camaro to bidders at the 2009 Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, AZ. Pricing starts at $109,500 which also includes a 1-day performance driving course at Lonestar Motorsports Park. Hennessey will start taking orders at Barret-Jackson starting Tuesday, Jan. 13. Starting Jan. 19th, the HPE700 Camaro can be ordered from select Chevrolet dealers and from Hennessey Performance Engineering.
