Hennessey's Camaro Challenges The Mighty Hellcat In A Drag Race

Drag Race

You'll be amazed at how fast the Hennessey Camaro is.

The Dodge Challenger Hellcat is the current king of muscle cars. Being the king means that you have to accept challenges from every competitor. When Hennessey built a 751-horsepower Camaro, the first question it wanted to answer was whether it could beat the mighty Hellcat. Hennessey's HPE 750 upgrade pack includes a TVS2300 supercharger running 7 psi of boost, a full exhaust system, and CNC ported cylinder head to raise the LT1's output to 751 hp at 6300 rpm and 734 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. Lookout, Hellcat!

The Camaro is also much lighter than the Hellcat (3685 lbs to 4,469 lbs). If you think the Hellcat stands a chance, prepare to watch the little kitty get its butt whooped.

Hennessey claims that the Camaro can hit 60 mph in 3.1 seconds and complete the quarter mile in 10.7 seconds at 131 mph. The Hellcat can only break into the 10-second range if it is wearing drag radials, so it's no surprise that the Camaro won the race. Comparing a tuned car to a stock one isn't exactly fair, but if you want the fastest muscle car around, you better call Hennessey.
