The American high performance tuning house Hennessey Performance Engineering has launched a new power package that puts a boost under the hood of the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. The modified pony car is called the HPE550 2SS Camaro, and is the first automobile to feature the tuner’s latest edition chrome Magnuson supercharger.

The HPE550 2SS Camaro features a set high-flow fuel injectors to deliver enough go juice into the combustion chamber to match the additional pressurized air being pumped in by the special edition supercharger, a stainless steel cat-back exhaust to allow as much air as possible to pass through the system and an HPE cold air intake to make sure that enough fresh air is making its way into the LS3. None of these products would work nearly as well as a unit if it weren’t for the HPE dyno tune that comes complete with every HPE550 purchase. Last but not least the 2SS package comes complete with a set of 20 inch wheels that resemble the ZR-1 and a pair of modified valve covers compliment the chrome blower nicely and dress up the engine bay as well.

The HPE550 has also become the world’s quickest 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, completing the standing quarter mile in just 11.76 seconds at 121.2 MPH, although it was wearing a set of drag radials.

Details and video after the jump.

I heard that the 2010 Camaro received an award for World Car Design of the Year for 2010. No doubt about it!
