Feel free to ask me any questions about the car : sharleen.norley@manlymail.net .

For sale is a 2012 Hennessey HPE 650 Camaro. I ordered the Camaro 2SS brand new from a local Chevrolet dealership
in the summer of 2011 and had the car shipped directly from the Chevrolet factory to Hennessey Performance in
Texas. After all modifications were complete at Hennessey I then took custody of the vehicle in December of 2011.
While at Hennessey I had the base HPE 650 package installed on the car (a detailed parts list for this package can
be found on the HPE website.) Additionally, I opted to have a more aggressive tune done on the car which voided
Hennessey's standard 3 year warranty but I wasn't overly concerned about that and the car has run beautifully
anyway. When dynoed in December of 2011 at Hennessey the car made 578 RWHP. Additional modifications done at
Hennessey include: Camaro Carbon Fiber Driveshaft, Driveshaft Shop High Performance Axles, Camaro Chasis Max Brace
by Hotchkis, Hotchkis Camaro Adjustable Sway Bars, Hotchkis Camaro Strut Brace and KW Coilover Suspension Variant 3
which lowered the car approximately 1" and gave it a much more aggressive stance.
Shortly after I received the car back from Hennessey I took it to No Limit Incorporated of Baltimore, MD for wheels
and tires. While the car was still being made I custom ordered four Savini Mono wheels with matte black paint,
20x11 in the rear and 20x10 up front. The wheels are wrapped with Pirelli P Zero tires, 305/35/20 rear and
275/40/20 front. After I had owned the car for about a year I noticed that the paint on the factory body kit was
starting to fade slightly and in my opinion it ruined the lines of the car. After Chevrolet told me that they
wouldn't fix the problem I took the car to D&V Auto Body of Dulles, VA to have the body kit paint re-matched to the
car. The new paint job came out flawless and has not shown any signs of fading due to the high quality paint used.
While the car was at D&V I had Seibon Carbon Fiber front splitter, side skirts and rear diffuser installed. I also
had a custom black vinyl racing stripe put on and had all exterior badges removed from the car. At this point the
car still had the original axle back mufflers and it really restricted the unique growl that this engine is capable
of producing. I took the car to Atlantic Autosports of Virginia Beach, VA and had a Magnaflow axle back muffler
delete bolted on to the cat back exhaust that Henessey had already installed. The exhaust note of this vehicle is
extremely loud. Other minor upgrades include an MGW short throw shifter, 35% window tint and a Speedhut SST Max
Shift Light. I also have an unused Burton short throw with white 8ball grip that I will throw in as well.
Since the day I took the car home it has been garaged and has never spent more than a few hours in direct sunlight.
I completed a disciplined break in period and the car has always been thoroughly warmed up before being driven. I
have never drag raced or taken the car out to a track day. I have routinely changed the oil with Mobile One full
synthetic every three months regardless of whether the car has been driven or not. The interior of the car is
completely free of any cosmetic defects and looks and smells new. The exterior of the car has one small blemish on
the passenger side rear view mirror that I have been unable to buff out on my own. It can likely be repaired at an
auto body shop for a couple hundred dollars, I just haven't had the time to do it. I have all of the work orders
for modifications done on the car along with the original dyno chart and some service records, all can be produced
upon request for verification purposes. All said and done the car has nearly 50K invested on top of the price for a
brand new Camaro 2SS (42K). I am selling to free up some funds for another project

Next-gen GM SUVs caught wearing new boxy bodies [w/video]

Wed, 15 May 2013

We recently drove the brand-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and found it to be vastly improved compared to the outgoing model. And now that The General's pickup trucks have been squared away, it's time to focus our attention onto their passenger-friendly companions, the Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon (above).
Our spy photographers have passed along a huge smattering of photos (and a video), showing the new SUVs out testing. Both the short- and long-wheelbase models were spied, and while the overall shape of the vehicles hasn't changed all that much, we expect the updates to be substantial. In addition to new powertrain options, like GM's new small-block V8, we expect the interiors of both SUVs to get massive makeovers, providing better materials throughout their cabins and quieter, more refined environments. We even hear that some trick new suspension developments may be in store for upper-end models.
Visually, these spy shots allow us to see a couple of new details on the SUVs' front and rear fascias, including LED running lamps on the Yukon and some interesting LED taillamp treatments. Of course, the obvious third party missing from this set of photos is the Cadillac Escalade, but as we reported earlier, GM is working to further differentiate the 'Slade from the rest of the fullsize SUV lineup, and is working to make the new model "much less ostentatious."

Consumer Reports criticizes small turbo engines for misleading performance, fuel economy claims [w/video]

Tue, 05 Feb 2013

Consumer Reports has taken aim at at small-displacement, forced-induction engines, saying the powerplants don't manage to deliver on automaker fuel economy claims. Manufacturers have long held that smaller, turbocharged engines pack all power of their larger displacement cousins with significantly better fuel economy, but the research organization says that despite scoring high EPA economy numbers, the engines are no better than conventional drivetrains in both categories. Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing for Consumer Reports, says the forced induction options "are often slower and less fuel efficient than larger four and six-cylinder engines."
Specifically, CR calls out the new Ford Fusion equipped with the automaker's Ecoboost 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine. The institute's researchers found the engine, which is a $795 option over the base 2.5-liter four-cylinder, fails to match competitors in acceleration and served up 25 miles per gallon in testing, putting the sedan dead last among other midsize options.
The Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Ford Escape 2.0T all got dinged for the same troubles, though Consumer Reports has found the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder in the BMW 328i does deliver on its promises. You can check out the full press release below. You can also read the full study on the Consumer Reports site, or scroll down for a short video recap.

Chevy Corvette Stingray picks up another award, this time from Automobile

Mon, 18 Nov 2013

The new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has picked up another buff book accolade after capturing Road and Track's Performance Car of the Year award. The seventh-generation of America's sports car (sorry Viper, Mustang, et al.) has been named Automobile Magazine's Automobile of the Year.
Automobile's award to the Corvette over competitors is the mirror image of its rival Motor Trend, which named the Cadillac CTS its car of the year over the C7. The CTS was, according to the Automobile team, the closest contender to the mighty Stingray. Great news all around for General Motors it seems.
As for what pushed the Corvette past its distant, four-door cousin, Automobile commended its excellent, 6.2-liter V8 calling the car's performance "simply awesome" while also remarking that it is easier to drive fast than ever before thanks to steering and chassis tweaks. Following a theme set by other publications, there were also plaudits for the interior, of all things, with the buff book complimenting the car's ergonomics and material quality, while also praising the standard seats.
