The first run of Chevrolet SS sedans are fresh off the boat from Australia and almost immediately, Hennessey Performance Engineering has one in the shop. Of course, Hennessey’s SS won’t go untouched, so the Texas-based tuner threw it on the dyno for some baseline power figures.
The SS has a claimed power output of 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque, which seems about right, as Hennesey’s test resulted in 359 horsepower and 367 lb-ft at the wheels. These power figures are consistent automatic versions of the cars two door sister, the Camaro SS. In most people’s eyes, that would be more than enough power, but John Hennessey isn’t most people. We’re expecting to see this SS produce some astronomical power figures in the future once its graced by Hennessey engineers, in the meantime, check out the dyno pull in the video below.
