Oh, Chevrolet SS! You carry the shared hope of two nations, Australia and America, that the masses can still appreciate raw V8 muscle and sweet, sweet rear-wheel drive. And you get even better when Hennessey Performance gets their hands on you.

This is the SS with the Hennessey HPE600 upgrade, which means its LS3 V8 gets a blower and a bump to 600 horsepower at 6,300 RPM. Hennssey says it will run a quarter mile in 11.84 seconds at 117 mph, which is pretty quick.

Even better, it can smoke its tires in a hot and nasty fashion, as you can see towards the end of this video. What a shining example of Australo-American cooperation.
