When a company’s slogan is “Making Fast Cars Faster Since 1991,” I have a certain expectation set for me. If you’re telling me you can take a top-of-the-line luxury performance car and blow it out of the water, I invite you to bring it on. Hennessy does not disappoint with their HPE700 Twin Turbo Ferrari 458 Italia.
For $293,000 their optimization coax an additional 170 hp out of the engine through the use of twin ball-bearing turbochargers, fuel system upgrades, watercooling and some serious metal in the exhaust department. The addition of custom badging, carbon-fiber inlays, covers, and body upgrades on top of adjustable suspension and Monoblock wheels make it look as good as it sounds.
“Not for the timid,” they declare, the HPE700 puts out 738 hp and can rocket to 60 miles an hour in 2.8 seconds. It’s a 10-second car, no doubt.
