Hennessey's Over-Tuned Jeep Trackhawk Humbles the Chevy C8 Corvette

Hennessey’s Over-Tuned Jeep Trackhawk Humbles the Chevy C8 Corvette

The Trackhawk makes over 1,000 ponies and takes less than three seconds to hit 60 mph!

Hennessey Performance is known to heavily tune the vehicles it takes under its wings. This isn’t a marginal increase as many products to date have been tuned to make around 1,000 horses. As if this wasn’t enough to hype the products, the tuner often hosts drag races with other supercars and SUVs to give us a glimpse and perspective of how fast and agile these vehicles get after a Hennessey tune-up. The latest video shows a tuned Grand Cherokee Trackhawk go up against a near-stock Chevy C8 Corvette. It’s a given which vehicle won, but it’s a fun video nevertheless.

The C8 Chevy Corvette Is Easily Dominated by a Hennessey-Tuned C7 Corvette Z06

The C8 Chevy Corvette Is Easily Dominated by a Hennessey-Tuned C7 Corvette Z06

That’s hardly a fair duel but this is Hennessey

Unlike Chevrolet, Hennessey isn’t interested in selling stock cars. Hennessey makes money out of its tuning kits, so don’t be so surprised that the tuner pitted a HPE850-imbued C7 Z06 against a factory-spec C8 with the latter not standing a chance. This video reeks of marketing and nothing but marketing.

2020 Lamborghini Urus by Hennessey

The Urus now makes 750 horses and takes 2.65 seconds to hit the 60 mph mark!

The Urus is arguably the most successful and the most important product for Lamborghini today. It was launched in September 2018, and the company has moved around 8,500 examples since then. Naturally, this meant there is a demand for the SUV, which makes it a favorite for the aftermarket tuners as well. We’ve seen renditions by companies like Mansory, but this time, Hennessey has laid its hands on the Urus. Result? A 750-horsepower beast that takes less than three seconds to hit the 60 mph from a standstill. Who would’ve imagined that someday, an SUV would achieve such ridiculous numbers!

If You Think the Lamborghini Huracan Sounds Good, Wait Until You Hear the Lamborghini Urus by Hennessey

We can’t say no to a screaming Lambo, not even if it’s just on video

John Hennessey and company simply couldn’t refrain from giving the Lamborghini Urus a power upgrade. Make no mistake, the Urus is loaded in the performance department as it is, but this is Hennessey, so a dish made of car steroids is always welcome.

After Six Years of Development, The Production Version of the Hennessey Venom F5 Arrives In November

Six years of research, testing, and development have all led to this

The Hennessey Venom GT has been in our consciousness for the better part of six years. Yes, it’s been that long since Hennessey announced plans to build the limited-run supercar. Time has come and gone, and while the Venom GT remains in the shadows, it’s now scheduled to step into the limelight later this year.

Finally, Hennessey’s all-conquering supercar will make its production debut in November 2020. It’s still a bit of a wait for those who have waited six years to finally see the supercar. Fortunately, Hennessey is giving us a sneak peek in the form of a teaser image on what we can expect from the F5 when it finally breaks cover.

Watch The Hennessey Goliath 700 Take On A Stock Chevy Silverado

The Goliath 700 makes 280 horses more than the Silverado

When you have a product come out of Hennessey’s factory, you know it’s mighty fast. One such product is the Goliath 700, which is based on the GMC Sierra Denali. Hennessey gave the Sierra a significant power boost which turned the simpleton into a beast. To see how much of a difference it made, the tuner decided to pit the Goliath 700 against a stock 2020 Chevy Silverado which features the same engine as the Sierra, sans the Hennessey mods.

The first car will be ready this summer

Hennessey first announced the Venom F5 back in 2014, when the American company was still offering the Venom GT. The latter was discontinued in 2017, but the Venom F5 has yet to show up. Although Hennessey has released a ton of info about the hypercar, none of the 24 customer cars have been built so far. But Hennessey promises that the first chassis will be completed this summer and released an older rendering of the car.

Here's How the $225,000 Hennessey Jeep Gladiator Maximus 1000 Makes the Desert Its Bitch

Here’s How the $225,000 Hennessey Jeep Gladiator Maximus 1000 Makes the Desert Its Bitch

It’s riding on sand dunes like its tarmac!

The Maximus 1000 might arguably be the most popular product from Hennessey today. The truck is a beast in Jeep Gladiator’s clothes. It is plonked with the Hellcat 6.2-liter, supercharged V-8 engine under the hood and given the Hennessey treatment. On paper, the Maximus 1000 checked all the boxes that you’d expect from a truck of this demeanor. But, we have yet to see it prove its mettle in tough terrains or tracks or anywhere in the real world for that matter. However, Hennessey decided to show the world the Maximus’ might and took it to the desert to play with it. Is it still impressive? Hell yeah!

Is a Hennessey Venom 775 Faster Than a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?

Is a Hennessey Venom 775 Faster Than a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?

Evidently so, despite the GT350’s 0-60 mph time of 4.1 seconds!

Hennessey recently launched its latest recreation of the Ford F-150 called the Hennessey Venom 775. The truck has received a massive makeover, especially under the hood, and looks like Bruce Banner being exposed to Gamma rays. The truck is mighty quick and looks like a monster with the lift job and massive tires. To prove that the truck has more to it than its looks, the folks at Hennessey decided to pit it against a stock Mustang GT350. The GT350 is not an ordinary car, but can the Venom 775 beat it in a drag race?

2020 Ford F-150 Venom 775 By Hennessey

A performance-based F-150 with strong engine specs and stellar looks

Hennessey, a brand notorious for tuning Ford vehicles, has launched its latest take on the Ford F-150: The Hennessey Venom 775. Hennessey is known to give massive performance boosts to its vehicles and the 2020 Venom 775 is no exception either. Transformed inside and out, the Venom 775 is also a super-quick beast, thanks to all the mods made under the hood. The company has limited the production of the Venom 775 to just 100 examples, though, so if you want one, you need to move quick.

2020 GMC Sierra Denali Goliath 700 by Hennessey

Yet another monster from the House of Hennessey

When you hear the name “Hennessey” suffixed to any vehicle, you know it’s going to be a monster in all senses. The company has been transforming SUVs, sedans, and pickup trucks from nimble creatures into absolute beasts since the early ‘90s. Let’s say Hennessey drops massive amounts of gamma radiations into every vehicle to create Hulk versions of them.

The company already deals with the Raptor, Mustang, F-150, and GT, and will soon be adding the 2020 Bronco as well to its portfolio. The company even laid its hands on the Jeep Gladiator and plonked in a Hellcat engine to create a “Maximus” version that makes 1,000 horses. This time around, Hennessey has gotten hold of the GMC Sierra Denali.The power bumps are significant and it looks mighty big with the new raised stance. The company has moniker’d it the Goliath 700. It makes sense, doesn’t it?

How Do You Make the World’s Fastest Christmas Tree? Strap It on Top of a Hennessey-Tuned Jeep!

This thing hits 181 mph!

Some years ago Cadillac tied a Christmas tree to the roof of a CTS-V Wagon to perform a holiday burnout. Six years later, Hennessey Performance tied a tree to a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk to give us the world’s fastest Christmas tree. Sort of.

If you haven’t seen a Christmas tree run at 181 mph, this is the video you need to watch.

The Hennessey Maximus Jeep Gladiator Drops a Ton of Power Between the Engine and the Wheels: Video

The Hennessey Maximus Jeep Gladiator Drops a Ton of Power Between the Engine and the Wheels: Video

It should be renamed from Maximus 1000 to Maximus 692

Do you remember the Maximus 1000? Hennessey injected the Jeep Gladiator with steroids and renamed it the Maximus 1000 earlier this year. Although it looks absolutely stunning in black, the truck’s biggest change was under the hood where the tuner decided to swap the stock Pentastar engine with a Hellcat mill.

The engine was then further tuned to churn out 1,000 horsepower and now Hennessey has released a video of the Maximus doing a dyno run. Although you’d expect it to rev in all its glory, the Maximus actually didn’t make a 1,000 horses. It was a lot less, and honestly, a tad bit disappointing.

2021 Chevrolet C8 Corvette by Hennessey

2021 Chevrolet C8 Corvette by Hennessey

Are you prepared to handle as much as 1200 horsepower from the C8 Corvette?

The mid-engined 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has yet to arrive in dealerships, but Hennessey is already staking claim to an aftermarket program that could provide the Corvette C8 with as much as 1,200 horsepower. Company founder John Hennessey dropped the bombshell, saying that the program would bring a lot to the table in terms of aerodynamic enhancements, new wheels, and, of course, engine upgrade programs with different states of tune.

The availability of Hennessey’s program will largely depend on the Corvette C8’s market launch. The eight-generation ‘Vette was supposed to arrive this year, but General Motors has pushed the start of production to early 2021 — around February or March — due to the UAW strike that lasted a month before ending in October 2019. If you’re dying to get a hold of this 1,200-horsepower, Hennessey-tuned Corvette C8, you might have to wait around a year for that opportunity.‘’

2020 Hennessey Resurrection ZL1 1LE Camaro

2020 Hennessey Resurrection ZL1 1LE Camaro

As if the Exorcist wasn’t enough, Hennessey’s back with an even more powerful take on the Chevrolet Camaro

John Hennessey is bringing some divine power to the 2019 SEMA Auto Show. The model is called the Hennessey Resurrection, but don’t confuse the perceived grace attached to its name. The Resurrection is a super-limited, take-no-prisoners, 1,200 horsepower Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 that can lay waste to any ill-fated automotive soul that gets in its way. Hennessey only plans to build 24 units of the Resurrection with each model priced at around $200,000. That’s right. If you want to be showered by the grace of the Resurrection, you need to pay up some serious cash for the opportunity. This is why it’s worth every penny.

The Hennessey C7 Corvette ZR1 HPE 1200 Can Kick the Hell Out of a McLaren 720S

The Hennessey C7 Corvette ZR1 HPE 1200 Can Kick the Hell Out of a McLaren 720S

There might be a catch, though

The McLaren 720S was built with one thing and mind and one thing only. And that’s blistering performance through a combination of power and lightness. The C7 Corvette ZR1 is a nod to the same creed, but it lacks the McLaren’s innate ability to dance around a twisty circuit. While it’s obviously not as light on its feet like the Macca, this particular ZR1 got a helping hand from America’s controversial tuner Hennessey. The helping hand is the HPE 1200 upgrade, one that turned the Corvette into a McLaren 720S squasher. Or dit it?

Meet "Fury" - the 1,800-Horsepower Engine That Growls Inside the Hennessey Venom F5

Don’t you ever, not even for a second, think that Hennessey won’t get back to the speed record-breaking thing

In the midst of all those HPE power upgrades, it’s hard to forget that Hennessey is still gunning for the world speed record with the Venom F5 hypercar. After all, as you all know, the F5’s purpose is to top what Hennessey pulled off with the 270.49-mph, Lotus Elise/Exige-based Venom GT.

Well, fellas, what you’re about to read is a shocking wake up call that Hennessey just used to turn our attention from its obnoxious tuning jobs to its future speed record attempt. And yes, it has to do with the F5’s gargantuan engine.
