Hennessey Just Made the World’s Fastest Production Sedan Even More Powerful

Do a sedan, which is typically use for ferrying family, needs to have lots of horsepower? Personally, I think a little more power wouldn’t hurt and it looks the folks over at Hennessey Performance are also on the same page because they just bumped the already powerful Dodge Charger Hellcat into the supercar’s realm with 825 horsepower. Slapped with HPE850 performance upgrade package, which includes a new ECU, high flow air filter element, lower pulley upgrade that increases the boost by 1-2 psi, port matched throttle body, and ported supercharger housing.

The latest CTS-V won’t be on sale until later this year, but Texas-based tuner, Hennessey Performance Engineering, is already planning to build the world’s fastest 4-door sedan based on it and it is calling it 2016 Hennessey HPE1000 Twin Turbo CTS-V.

Hennessey’s HPE600 Upgrade Kit Puts More Ponies into the Jaguar F-Type Coupe, Makes 0-60 in 3.5 Secs

When comes to horsepower, some car enthusiasts can be quite an insatiable bunch, like what else can ask for when you already have 550 hp ride that makes, on paper, 0-60 in 4 seconds? Sure, it won’t be the fastest, but it is very fast, even more so if it is a daily ride like the the Jaguar F-Type Coupe or the R. However, if you are ever so inclined towards having more ponies out of a 2014-25 Jaguar F-Type Coupe and R, which by itself already has a very healthy 550 hp squeezed out of its 5.0-liter V8 Supercharged unit, John Hennessy may have the answer you’re looking for. For years, Hennessy has been helping American muscles to realize more power in exchange for a tidy sum, but now, he wants to push the performance boundaries of the British big cat further with the HPE600 Upgrade Kit that is said to yield 623 hp at the crank with 568 lb-ft of torque on the tap.

Incredibly Sexy Hennessey Venom F5 Has Its Sight Set On 290MPH

the rich probably don’t put a value to what they buy, but if they do, Hennessy is going to make sure their asking price of $1.2 million for the Hennessey Venom F5 will be well worth their money by getting it to an insane top speed of 290 mph (466 km/h!). however, if it didn’t, i am sure this sexy beast will still be a trophy any Scrooge McDuckians would love to have parked in their mansion-sized garage. then again, it wouldn’t be too far-fetch, considering its predecessor, the Venom GT, has already clocked over 270 mph at the Kennedy Space Center earlier this year. and for the record, that wasn’t log by the Guinness Book of World Records. what a shamed, isn’t it?
