It’s a question that’s obviously dogged a customer of Hennessey Performance Engineering who recently decided to put the question to bed by signing on the dotted line for two modified fifth-generation Camaros which, thanks to the minds at Hennessey, now produce a combined 1,650 hp.
While we’re not told the specific power outputs of each vehicle, it’s clear both the Z/28’s 505 horsepower LS7 V8 and the ZL1’s 580 horsepower 6.2L supercharged LSA V8 are now producing far more than the combined 1,085 ponies they make from the factory.
Now, with an extra 565 horsepower between them, the two blast down the airstrip in a heated duel, engines snarling and roaring as they blast towards the horizon.
They also look about as friendly as a punch in the face, thanks to their identical triple-black paint jobs. It might not be the most original paint scheme ever conceived, but it’s hard to argue against such a hue when these two prove its best to simply slather on the black when it doubt.
For those counting at home, HPE also gets extra points for its smoky and wholly gratuitous ZL1 burnout that’s so billowy it could even make Jay Leno jealous.
