2010 Hennessey Camaro HPE550

Defined by its engine upgrade, the HPE550 Camaro is the first supercharged engine kit to be offered from Hennessey. Not only limited to power, Hennessey has also made a list of other upgrades which can comprehensively change almost every aspect of the Camaro.

The engine uses a Hennessey/Magnuson supercharger which raises horsepower to 562 bhp. To accommodate the new system, Hennessey also fit a new air induction system, high-flow injectors and recalibrated engine management. A nice option is the stainless steel exhaust system with long-tube headers and high-flow catalytic converters.

With the ‘Complete’ package, Hennessey fits a rear lip spoiler, front splitter and side rocker panels. An exterior graphics package calls out ‘Hennessey S/C’ on the rear quarter panel and includes stripes on the hood. Further options include HPE550 wheels, Peddler’s coil-over suspension and Brembro Brakes.
