2014 Hennessey Chevy SS runs 11-second quarter mile

Diego Rosenberg Jan 27, 2014

Hennessey does it again! After giving us several top-end bonzai run on the Houston Grand Parkway, most recently in a 2014 Chevrolet SS, they’re back with a drag test pulling off 11.84 ETs at 117 mph. On drag radial tires and 93 octane pump fuel, no less!

The 2014 Chevy SS is no shrinking violet out of the box as it is, capable of 13.3 seconds at 107.6 mph according to our compatriots at Motor Trend. That’s faster than any Impala SS from the golden age of performance (think L72 427). And 1.5 seconds faster with the HPE600 package? Back then, that would require enough equipment to render an Impala SS unstreetable.

Here’s what Hennessey did to turn their SS into an HPE600:

• TVS2300 Supercharger System

• HPE Air Induction System

• Custom HPE Pulley

• Fuel System Upgrade

• High Flow Fuel Injector Upgrade

• 160 Degree Thermostat

• Professional Installation

• HPE Engine Management Calibration

• Dyno Tuning & Road Testing

• Hennessey HPE600 Exterior Badging

• Serial-Numbered Dash & Engine Plaques

• Hennessey Premium Floor Mats

All that (including the Hennessey Premium Floor Mats, natch) gives you 600 bhp @ 6,300 rpm. Of course, this being Hennessey, you have other flavors if you want to go faster, including the HPE1000 Twin Turbo with 1000 golden horsepower. Hell, yeah!

Chevrolet is on a roll these days – they’re giving us superb go-fast cars out off the showroom floor, and tuners like Hennessey are making them even better. Perhaps the golden age is really today?
