It’s safe to say that Hennessey Performance Engineering is a celebrity in the automotive world. Started by John Hennessey in 1991 thanks to a Mitsubishi 3000 GT, the Texas-based company is now known for its outrageously fast and sleek builds of the latest and greatest rides from Bentley to Toyota and everything in between. Located at Lonestar Motorsports Park just west of Houston, Texas, Hennessey sits on its very own quarter-mile drag strip facility that doubles as its very own test track and proving grounds. But you probably already knew that.
From what we can see in this rendering by RC82 Workchop, this mean all-black design features ridiculously huge drag slicks, wheely bars, large side-exhaust pipes, and a parachute almost resembling a bow tying together one perfectly sinister package.
Hennessey has already successfully milked 1,000 horses out of a C7 Z06 given the HPE1000 package upgrade, which means that if this Photoshop rendering of Hennessey’s HPE2000 was to physically come to life, that it could be propelled by something insane to bump it up to 2,000 bhp. As you know, a standard C7 ‘Vette sports a 376 ci. 6.2-liter V8 engine capable of a naturally-aspirated 455 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and the ’15 C7 Z06 generates 650 horses tapped out of the LT4 supercharged 6.2L.
If this rendering is a possibility, maybe Hennessey will install its 2.9-liter supercharger kit along with a slew of other go-fast goodies to help launch this build into a whole new playing field. Bring it on, Hennessey!
