How's She Handle? Hennessey's ZR1-powered Camaro attacks a road course

What do you get when you drop a Corvette ZR1-sourced supercharged V8 tuned to output 705 horsepower into the engine bay of a Chevrolet Camaro? You have one very fast pony car. Add Hennessey performance parts to keep that power focused on the road and you've got Mustang-thumping tour-de-force the likes of which the world has... well, you get the point.
The folks at Hennessey want to make sure that their modded Camaro is worthy of its hefty price tag, so they have little choice but to test their high-powered beast on the road and at the track. Tough job. Hit the jump to watch the HPE700 LS9 Camaro as it takes on the road course at MSR Houston. We can't get enough of the sound of the LS9 V8 mill as it pushes the Herculean Camaro to 130 miles per hour on the straights, and watching the Camaro hit 1G in the turns doesn't suck either.
