Completing the look of the HPE700 is a ZR1 inspired hood design wîth window showing off the Hennessey's tweaked LS9 powerplant.
'The HPE700 Camaro allows our customers to combine supercar power and performance wîth classic American muscle car looks in a modern, daily-drive usable sportscar wîth a backseat and a trunk!,' said John Hennessey, President and CEO of Hennessey Performance Engineering.
