Do you want to go 0-60 mph in under three seconds in a Chevrolet Camaro? Well, you’re not going to do it in a production version. Because of this, it’s best to leave it to an aftermarket tuner like Hennessey Performance who has a monstrous upgrade for the American muscle car.
The HPE850 upgrade for the 2017 Camaro ZL1 takes the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine and pushes its power all the way up to 725 hp and 706 lb-ft of torque (858 hp and 830 lb-ft at the motor factoring a 15% driveline loss through factory manual transmission). How to they do this? With a pretty lengthy list of upgrades that can be found on their page dedicated to the package.
After Hennessey Performance installs the new package on a Camaro, they claim that it will run 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds, run a quarter-mile in 104 seconds at 135 mph and hit a top speed of 210 (top speed for examples equipped with 10-speed automatic). Hennessey does not that these “acceleration times are achieved by using optional rear drag radial tires on a prepped dragstrip.”
