A few other considerations:


(1) GT500 on 91 octane and Camaro on race fuel.


(2) Camaro $12,000 more than GT500 -- imagine the GT500 performance improvement with another $12 grand investment.


(3) No road course comparison in the test. Major oversight. Based on the test as is, the GT500 would have smoked the Camaro bad on a road course. Also, sounds like the Camaro would have extreme heat soak issues (no intercooler) and perhaps overheating issues as well on a road course.


Having said all of that, the GT500 still won. Add in Items 1,2, & 3 above and it would not even be close.

"Wearing Yenko drag and lowered over its 20-inch wheels, the 2010 Hennessey Performance HPE550 Camaro is both more dramatic and more sinister-looking. It attracts attention the way tall bridges attract suicide attempts."

It says Hennessey on it. It won't complete any full test. Go back through old car mags. Any time the tuners brought their hot stuff Hennessey's stuff was on a trailer before everyone got to the finish line. And not because it won any bouts either.
