    pretty good video. I was hoping to hear Hennessey softening up the suspension, making it a tame dd.

    price check?

    well, that is the 705hp beast. not worth 110K...but still an awesome car to drive, i bet.


    which one is priced more reasonably? GT500 or Hennessey Camaro 560 HP?

    Last time I checked, Gt500 was 43k base. Super Snake was about 19k more.

    how did they only manage a 4.6 with the gt500...it traps the 1/4 119+. I think the hennessey should have been compared to the supersnake

    Nice cars, but I'm sure you could build it cheaper.

    the hennessey superchaged 550 package is $19,000 so it might be a lil cheaper to buy a ss ls3 camaro then buy the kit but iono itd be close

    Think he was talking about the 0-60 time. The reason it's 4.6 is because they do these tests on street tires. If they put drag radials on them it would be quicker, and they were only doing about a 2500 launch. If they put stickies on them and dropped it at 4000 these things would really impress.

    You unleash 500hp+ on street tires your 0-60 will not be impressive. Like JaycenK said you put some DR on those cars, you better have a neck brace on.

    Eitherway those tires still limit the cars.

    Eagle F1s are shit!

    Pontiac should have been smarter and put Potenza PO1 Pole Positions on them birds.

    Goodyear=good for a year.
