Okay Corvette guys (and gals), plug your ears for this news. It seems, after Hennessey Performance Engineering slapped its 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS to the dyno, the latest pony car puts down more rear-wheel horsepower than its 2016 C7 Corvette Stingray brethren.
That, frankly, is shocking news. The 2016 Camaro SS is rated for 455 hp at the engine, but the dyno shows 431 of the hustling horsepowers find their way to the rear wheels, with 427 lb-ft of torque ushering the vehicle forward. In comparison, HPE tested a stock, seven-speed manual equipped 2016 C7 Corvette, which showed only 410 rear-wheel horsepower.
That means, with a little math, the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS is making closer to 500 hp at the engine to account for a loss at the crank. Yesterday, we also reported HP Motorsports dyno tested its own 2016 Camaro SS with nearly similar results: 420 rear-wheel horsepower.
Does this news only sweeten the deal? Yup. Check out the run yourself right up above.
