We love seeing these Hennessey Performance Engineering dyno runs as much as you do, and the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS HPE800 is no exception. To tell you the truth, it’s one of the better clips, simply because it sounds nasty and makes an appealing 669 rear wheel horsepower and 577 rear wheel lb-ft of torque. HPE claims that, after factoring a 20 percent drivetrain loss, the approximated power at the flywheel is 804 hp and 692 lb-ft torque.
Those power figures are achieved with just 7 easy pounds of boost while running on Shell V-Power 93 octane pump gas. That’s pretty impressive when you consider the 268 rwhp and 170 rwtq gains. And boy, does it scream. Much like a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 screams around the track in videos we’ve seen.
All that power riding on the Alpha platform sounds like a grand ol’ time to us, and we can’t help but wonder how the Camaro SS HPE800 stacks up against the recently uncovered 2017 Camaro ZL1. We know we’re not the only ones curious to see how the aftermarket beast stacks up against the factory-built athlete; it’s just a matter of time before we see the two go head to head.
