With over 800 horsepower on tap, this is one of the baddest Mustangs of all time.
Speeding along in a sports car is undoubtedly a ton of fun, but some owners need the ability to carry a lot of people and their stuff and don't want to sacrifice the ability to put the power down. The tuners over at Hennessey have that demographic covered with their growling, supercharged power kits for the GMC Yukon Denali. The upgrades come in three forms for the SUV's 6.2-liter V8: HPE550 with 557 horsepower, HPE600 with 605 hp and HPE650 with 665 hp.
If there are any two firms you could count on to shoehorn a Ferrari V8 into the back of an Alfa Romeo 4C, they would almost certainly be Lazzarini Design and Hennessey Performance. The former already dreamt up doing the same with a Fiat 500, and the latter has been shattering records with a similar conversion performed on a Lotus Elise to turn it into the Venom GT. What you see here is their lovechild.
Thanks to the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat there is a new magic number in the muscle car world – 707. To raise eyebrows these days in the power war, a vehicle needs to match or preferably exceed that palindromic figure. The tuners over at Hennessey took a look at it for their 2015 HPE700 Mustang and decided to go one better. Well, ten actually, because they bestowed their latest creation with 717 horsepower and 632 pound-feet of torque.
While Pebble Beach is traditionally thought of as the refuge of the pristine and pricey vintage vehicles of the world, there's no shortage of newer vehicles on display. And when we say "new," we mean really new. As in, not even in production new. This is the concept car lawn, and it's home to an eclectic group of vehicles from past and present.
Now that the Venom GT has earned a Guinness World Record as the quickest car to reach 300 kilometers per hour (186 miles per hour) to go along with its recorded top speed of 270.49 miles per hour (recorded last month at Florida's Kennedy Space Center), Hennessey thinks its time for a celebration. To commemorate the honors, it's building a new "World's Fastest Edition" of the Venom GT, limited to just three units priced at an eye-watering $1.25 million each. Want one? Sorry, it's too late.
