HPE600 Camaro Convertible Video Released

So, you want a car that offers you explosive sensations, and it has to be American. Let’s see... there are many choices, but we’ll go for a modern classic, the Chevy Camaro. Let’s choose the SS version, so we can be sure that we have a pony with enough muscle. We’ll actually go for the convertible, as we can now wave bye-bye to the cold season.

So, there you have it, one of the many ways to have some rear-wheel-drive fun. Wait, what’s that Mr. Henessey? You want to join the party? Fine. So, what do you have for us?

The answer to that question is simple: a supercharger that brings 602 hp and 605 lb-ft (820 Nm) to the Camaro’s V8 game. And the story doesn’t end here, as Henessey has also fitted the topless Camaro with a KW adjustable coilover suspension and 20-inch rims that use Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber (these are optional features).

Dubbed HPE600 Camaro Convertible, this baby can hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds and needs 12 seconds to complete the quarter mile run (at 118 mph/190 km/h).

You can see the bad boy in action in the video bellow. Before you scroll down to the drag strip action, you might want to take a look at the vehicle’s specs:
