From the Mustang to the Viper and Veyron, Hennessey Performance has spread its abilities across the performance car spectrum. And with hi-po vehicles like the IS F, ZR1, and GT-R on their way to buyers' garages, John Hennessey says he is working on packages to make all of those cars even higher-po.
The IS F looks to be the first in line, with the experiment subject arriving at Hennessey's shop next week. The car will be a test bed for "headers, exhaust and air induction systems first. Then maybe a blower." He's also got his eye on the baddest boy Corvette ZR1, for which his website advertises "700+ HP coming soon!" The physics-defying GT-R is in the crosshairs as well, and if he can make it better than it already is, that would be among the best testaments for his services.

Coming down just a notch -- but still up there -- the Cadillac CTS-V and Camaro will get their chances for glory as well. While all of this sounds great, what we really hope is that none of this extra work causes Hennessey not to give us the Venom. That's the package we are truly dying to see.

      Stick with domestics and leave the import tuning to the big name tuners in Japan.

      Autobloggers: come on, this guy shouldn't get free publicity for his latest stunts, much less when he says that he will enhance cars that aren't even in the market (and taking into account his reputation, I highly doubt that he had access to pre-production prototypes).

      As a fact, this guy's last name/company is mentioned as the "H-word" in the VCA (Viper Club of America) forums, because he has a history of not backing up his offers, screwing up his client's cars, etc.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Agreed. I'm so sick and tired of this guy getting free press.

      This criminal should have been in jail years ago for all the things he has pulled, and yet he continues to get good press.....
        • 6 Years Ago
        Maybe its because he isn't a criminal, and he deserves the good press that he gets...
      • 6 Years Ago
      It's a disgrace to autoblog that they would even try to post something legitimate about the criminal John Hennessey. This shouldn't even be a debate, the guy has screwed so many people it's amazing he's not in jail by now.

      Guess he isn't getting of money swindling just the Viper owners.

      "From the Mustang to the Viper and Veyron, Hennessey Performance has spread its abilities across the performance car spectrum"

      It sounds like you're implying that they've tuned a Veyron, which unless I'm completely out of the loop, hasn't happened (yet).

      Please make this guy stop.
        • 6 Years Ago
        We can start by stopping AB from giving him free (?) publicity. Seriously guys, no one here wants to hear about this douchebag.
      • 6 Years Ago
      What a joke.

      I'm more interested in the rumors flying around that Saleen will be expanding into GM products when the Camaro is released. It would be interesting to see what they can do with that car as well as the Corvette, Solstice/Sky, G8, Cobalt SS, and Silverado/Sierra.

        Im more interested in why a troll like you just won't stop talking and shut the f up.

        thank you
