Earlier this year, common wisdom was that the Chevrolet Camaro Convertible had been canceled, or at least delayed indefinitely. Then word came in May that the car would see launch in the first quarter of 2011. Now that has been updated to the second quarter of 2011, but it’s officially confirmed by General Motors as headed to production.

562 HP Hennessey HPE550 Camaro

Houston-based Hennessey Motorsport‘s new supercharged, 562 HP 2010 HPE550 Camaro gets wrung out in this first test proving that the Camaro is no longer just a redneck’s play thing and more a precisely-guided patriot missile.

Hennessey Motorsport makes claim that the 2010 HPE550 will lay waste to its 20-inch drag radials via a 562 HP (at the crank), 557 lb-ft of torque blown LS3 and is capable of hitting 3.6 second 0-60 times with a stellar 11.7 @ 121 mph jaunt down the 1320, but this clip claims a 4.3 second 0-60 and a 12.1 @ 120 mph quarter-mile. Either way, this baby’s quick.

Only 500 HPE550 Camaros will be built and sold via your friendly local Chevy dealer, so get a move on before someone else swipes them all up first.
