1969 Chevrolet G-Code Camaro

The Ringbrothers’ kept busy unveiling three new creations at the 2017 SEMA Show. They brought one of those sweet rides over to Jay Leno’s Garage. The exterior of the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro G-Code doesn’t look heavily modified, but the tuners have given it some serious upgrades.

The client for the G-Code wanted to keep the classic look of the ’69 Camaro, but wasn’t afraid of some tweaks. For example, the nose features hidden headlights like the RS model, but the covers don’t retract when the lights are one. Instead, the LEDs shine through. Not to mention the grille and bumper feature machined parts that look great. Check out the episode below, and hear why this 1969 Chevy Camaro G-Code hits the spot for Jay Leno.

800-HP Cadillac Escalade vs. Camaro ZL1 1LE

So right off the bat you probably know that this isn’t about a stock Cadillac Escalade. And wherever ridiculously fast cars are going faster, you know Hennessey Performance isn’t too far away. In this video, a Camaro ZL1 is pitted against a Cadillac Escalade SUV tuned by the great (and possibly crazy) people of Hennessey. The shop offers a HPE800 package, which comes with a mighty 805 horsepower, doubling the power in the stock Escalade. But how? By attaching a high-flow 2.9L supercharger to the 6.2-liter V8 engine, and of course a few other upgrades sprinkled in there. The Hennessey Escalade goes 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds and goes a quarter-mile in 11.7 at 116 mph. Check it out for yourself in the video below, and let the insanity of the Hennessey Escalade tuning package really sink in.
