Hold on to your butts, Camaro fans. Hennessey Performance has taken the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS up to a staggering 202 miles per hour.

It's all thanks to the new HPE750 package, which features an exhaustive overhaul of the standard Camaro SS' 6.2-liter V8. No surprise here, but a supercharger takes center stage. It's a TVS2300 pumping out a modest seven PSI of boost, which doesn't sound like a lot, until you look at all the other stuff HPE has done. Basically, everything but the block has been swapped or at least modified – there are CNC ported cylinder heads, new headers, an upgraded camshaft, a new intake, and an overhaul to the engine management system. The result is 751 hp, along with 643 pound-feet of torque.

That's good, according to Hennessey, for a 3.1-second run to 60 miles per hour. Those that opt for this act of automotive lunacy will also be able to cover the quarter mile in just 10.7 seconds and hit 202 miles per hour. In the interest of proving that last stat, HPE has put together this video.

Now, there are a few caveats. The 202-mph run was achieved, naturally, on a test track. Don't try this at home. Hennessey also employed a 150-horsepower shot of nitrous oxide on its test car, but as that's not listed on the company's page describing the HPE750 upgrade, we aren't sure if it's necessary for hitting 202 mph. Of course, HPE also makes a 1,000-hp Camaro, so if you don't want N20, there's a more natural alternative.
