AutoBlog: It Fits! Hennessey successfully shoves ZR1 LS9 into Camaro

Hennessey Performance HPE700 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Hennessey Performance has successfully completed the most crucial step in developing its ZR1-powered HPE700: Getting the Corvette ZR1's LS9 motor to fit in the engine bay of the new Camaro. John Hennessey just sent over these images that show the before and after, and from the look of things, the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 fits nicely.

The engine cover that's visible through a polycarbonate window on the Corvette ZR1 lines up nicely against the Camaro's firewall and it appears there's still some room left in front of the engine. While the LS9 normally produces 638 hp in the ZR1, as its name suggests, the Hennessey HPE700 will be shooting for over 700 horsepower. Only 24 examples will be produced and Hennessey has already sold 11. If you're interested, check out the official specs and features on the Hennessey Performance website.

A standard L99/LS3 would be more than enough for me. They are building the Z28 GM should be sending us but with about 150 more horsepower. Cool!

Cool..probably scary fast and scary expensive. Would love to see Hennessey do a Suburban w/ this engine.

No transparent window?

The polycarbonate window is coming in the package, from what I have read. So yeah, there will be one. If I hit the LOTTO....this will be the FIRST THING I BUY. Period.
