With the endless stream of gloomy news and drama coming from Detroit these days, it can be hard to find something out there to get excited about. The timing might not be ideal, but with a redesigned Mustang, the new Camaro, and the Dodge Challenger on the market, you can almost forget about bailouts and credit crunches and pretend that it's 1970 again. Despite the fact that these retro muscle cars perform better than their ancestors could ever dream of, there are still people that want more, and tuners like Hennessey Performance Engineering are there to serve them.
This rendering is of the Hennessey Camaro HPE550, a package that transforms the Chevy Camaro SS into supercharged beast outputting over 560hp, along with all the required body and wheel upgrades. If that isn't enough, HPE is also going to be offering a Camaro powered by the engine from the Corvette ZR1.
Hmmm… what green movement? What recession?
