Hennessey Chevy SS

Custom tuner Hennessey Performance has done it again, taking an already-stout performance car and taking it up another notch (or twelve). The Houston, Texas-situated tuning shop took the 2014 Chevrolet SS—which already gets 415 horsepower from its 6.2-liter V8—and upgraded it with a TVS2300 Supercharger system, Hennessey Air Induction system, and a new fuel injector and fuel system. The result, the HPE600 Supercharged Hennessey Chevy SS, can run a quarter-mile in 11.84 seconds at 117 miles per hour.

That sound? That’s 600 horsepower @ 6,300 rpm. If The 2014 Chevy SS is—as Forbes’ Matthew de Paula described it—a “four-door Corvette,” then the Hennessey Chevy SS would be akin to the newly-revealed Corvette Z06.

Need a further demonstration of the unrelenting power of the Hennessey Chevy SS? How about a video of the same Supercharged SS doing 163 miles on a toll road in Texas?

 In addition to the aforementioned upgrades, the Hennessey Chevy SS also comes with professional installation, HPE Engine Management Calibration, Dyno tuning and road testing, unique Hennessey exterior badging and floor mats, and a 3 year/36,000 mile limited warranty.

Additional appearance and performance options include premium wheel and tire packages, suspension and brake upgrades, transmission and driveline upgrades, custom interior, CarbonAero ™ Body Components, Carbon Fiber Trim Accents, and Alcantara wrapped steering wheel among others.

Are you the owner of a 2014 Chevy SS who finds yourself thinking sure, yeah, that’s fast and all, but it could always stand to be faster. All right, then: Hennessey offers other upgrade packages for the SS, topping out with the HPE1000 Twin Turbo upgrade kit. In case you aren’t entirely sure what the acronym means, we’ll fill you in: 1,000 horsepower.
