The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is proving to be a very capable vehicle to modify. A number of well-respected performance and tuning divisions have already gone to town and created some real monsters for the street and track.
Notably, Hennessey Performance Engineering has gone bonkers, and boosted output of the regular 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS to a whopping 751 hp and 643 lb-ft of torque with the standard 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine. With its handy TVS2300 supercharger, and a host of other upgrades, HPE took to the Continental Tire Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas, to see just how fast its performance package was.
Guess what? It’s fast. Really fast.
HPE clocked the 2016 Camaro SS at 202.1 mph. Two-zero-two. How about a dose of perspective for that number; that’s only 19 mph off from the McLaren F1’s record setting speed in 1998 of 221 mph. And this is performance from a very attainable sports car.
Check out the video above for yourself, and prepare to be blown away.
