Tuned 2010 Chevrolet Camaro Costs $109,000

Tuning kits are undoubtably pretty attractive to all car enthusiasts out there but, when coming across $100,000+ packages, most of them would prefer to say no. But even so, Hennessey Performance Engineering, also known as HPE, has just unveiled its own Limited Edition 2010 HPE700 Camaro, a tuned car that incorporates astonishing and high-performance elements, Jalopnik wrote today.

First of all, there's the engine. HPE says the Camaro comes with GM's new LS9 supercharged V8 unit, but obviously upgraded to provide way more power than the stock version. That's why the engine is now capable of producing no less than 705 horsepower plus 717 lb-ft of torque.

Then, there's the aerodynamics, one of the attributes the engineers were most focused on, according to a HPE statement. Made by British designer Steve Everitt, the body package includes a carbon fiber rear lip spoiler, carbon fiber side rocker panels, carbon fiber front splitter, front fascia with hideaway-look headlights and front billet grille.

“The HPE700 Camaro allows our customers to combine supercar power and performance with classic American muscle car looks in a modern, daily-drive usable sportscar with a backseat and a trunk!,” said John Hennessey, President and CEO of Hennessey Performance Engineering.

“We will be announcing other Hennessey turnkey vehicle packages for the 2010 Camaro in the near future along with an extensive list of aftermarket performance parts and accessories. But for now, the LS9-powered HPE700 Camaro, replete with ZR1 inspired looks and performance promises to be at the top of the American muscle car food chain later in 2009.”

However, you should probably know that, in case you really desire all these goodies, you have to pay no less than $109,500 (that's more than triple the price of a stock Camaro!).
