Watch the Hennessey Camaro Z/28 Unleash 636HP on the Track
Chevrolet is plenty good at turning its Camaro into a 505-horsepower track-day monster, à la the brutish Z/28. But the Texas tuning wizards at Hennessey Performance go a bit further…and we think it’s fairly easy to see (and hear) the difference. They recently handed the tuned Camaro’s keys to retired GM performance executive engineer and SCCA national champion John Heinricy. He wasted no time in putting the power to the pavement around the track at MSR Houston. See for yourself – and turn those speakers up.

To create this rather vocal HPE600 Z/28, Hennessey cranked the naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8 up to an ear-throbbing 636 horsepower at 7,000 rpm. The boost comes courtesy of ported cylinder heads, a new Hennessey camshaft, longtube headers, and a revised valvetrain. But if that’s not enough for you, Hennessey can cram on two turbochargers and extract a brain tingling 1,000-horsepower.
The standard Z/28 trounced the Nurburgring in a swift 7:37.47 … anyone wondering how many seconds 1,000 horsepower could shave off?
