When it comes to modern muscle car news it’s all been about the Camaro this week. First the Camaro ZL1 set a smoking hot time of 7:41.27 at the Nurburgring closely followed by Chevrolet announcing that the Camaro ZL1 convertible will be launching next month (read news). Now, to cap it all off specialist tuner Hennessey has revealed its latest special edition the 20th Anniversary Edition Camaro.
