Not a lot of people would think that you can do anything with a Lincoln MKS apart from a few tuning modifications. After all, it’s a pretty powerful car by itself. Then again, Hennessey Performance isn’t a lot of people.

The renowned car tuning house took a stab at modifying a Lincoln MKS, which, with its new EcoBoost V6 engine, already packs 355 horsepower and 350 lbs/feet of torque. Hennessey Performance boosted that up even further by adding its own MaxBoost 435 upgrade kit, upping the MKS’ total output by 80 hp and 55 lb/ft of torque to 435 horsepower and 405 lb/ft of torque, respectively.

The result is a Lincoln MKS that that punches a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 13 seconds at speeds in excess of 106 mph.
In addition to the engine upgrade, Hennessey Performance’s MaxBoost 435 pack also comes with a polished intercooler piping upgrade, engine management software upgrade, a dual cold air induction system, a stainless steel cat-back exhaust, and a one year/12,000-mile warranty.

All in all, it’s a pretty impressive package from a tuning house that has made quite a living turning seemingly ordinary – yet innately powerful – cars into full-fledged beasts on wheels.

Not sure I’d trust the factory transmission to take that extra 55lbs of torque very well, The Ecoboost Aisin is rated at 350 and the regular 6F is rated for 300.
