The HPE aero package contains a slightly modest look as to not overpower the already-aggressive lines of the Camaro. The relationship between the stock body panels and HPE's subtle urethane front splitter, side rocker panels, and rear lip spoiler keep the '10 rooted to its modern-day muscle car theme. More retro inspiration comes by way of Hennessey's Yenko-ish rear quarter-panel graphics that tastefully work their way up to the front fenders. And if there is any question of what's in store for the unassuming competition, Hennessey's HPE550 exterior badges announce that serious business resides beneath the hood.
With a limited availability of only 500, the '10 HPE550 Camaro is sure to turn the head of most any hot rod enthusiast. And if the HPE550 upgrade package doesn't get your blood pressure off the charts, then check out Hennessey's top-shelf '10 HPE700; this monster comes complete with a tire-shredding 795hp 6.2L supercharged LS9. But you better hurry - only 24 of those bad boys are slated for production.
With the '10 Camaro finally hitting the streets, the aftermarket will soon be flooded with every performance-enhancing part and billet widget you can think of. With that said, companies like Felser Built, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, and Nickey Chicago/Route 66 Motorsports are the early players that have already developed performance upgrade packages for GM's latest, and quite possibly most important hot rod. But make room, there's plenty more companies in the wings getting ready to bust out their high-performance interpretation of the '10 Camaro.
So far, performance levels generally vary from 550hp supercharger packages all the way up to LS9 engine transplants producing well over 650 hp.
How fast you want to go depends on your budget.
Got deep pockets? Then the sky's the limit.
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been dishing out big-horsepower cars for years, so it's only fitting they jump into the '10 Camaro performance upgrade ring with both feet. Lingenfelter offers six different engine upgrades ranging from the 550hp supercharged version all the way up to the 800hp twin-turbo LS7-powered package. But if turbos aren't your thing, they're sure to have something in the middle to fit your budget and passion for speed.
When off-the-shelf horsepower just won't cut it, Fesler Built offers a limited-edition Fesler-Moss Camaro. This upgrade package will net your fifth-gen 600 track-tested ponies and your choice of billet parts, an aero package, special edition wheels, and more. With only 60 production models available per year, you'll need to get your reservation in soon.
