Hennessey and its Trifecta of Speed and Power at SEMA
Hennessey is perfectly ready to unveil 2875 Horsepower at 2015 SEMA Show this year! Of course, we are not talking about a single car, but a trio comprising of 1451 HP Venom GT Spyder, 774 HP HPE750 Supercharged Mustang Convertible and 650 HP VelociRaptor 650 Supercharged Ford F-150 Truck.
2016 Hennessey Venom GT
The so called ‘trifecta of speed and power', starts with the 2016 Hennessey Venom GT. The flagship hypercar boasts a maximum power output of 1451 bhp (785 kW) at 7200 rpm. This is a gain of 207 bhp over the previous Venom which clocked a top speed of 270.4 mph at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida in 2014.
HPE says that the horsepower and torque were increased due to the ability to run E85 Flexfuel which allows its 7.0L twin turbo V-8 engine to increase boost pressure from 19 psi to 26 psi. Putting the power onto the ground are the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires. This also happens with the help of GPS-based traction control system. Combined with a curb weight of just 2743 lbs (1244 kg) the Venom GT continues to offer an unmatched power to weight ratio.
Here are some details of the projected performance:
- 0-60 mph: 2.4 sec.
- 0-100 mph: 4.4 sec.
- 0-200 mph: 12.8 sec.
- ¼ mile: 9.4 sec. @ 167 mph
- 0-300 kph: 10.9 sec.
- 0-400 kph: 18.1 sec.
- Top Speed: 280+ mph
2016 HPE750 Supercharged Ford Mustang Convertible
The second HPE car at the show will be the 2016 HPE750 Supercharged Ford Mustang Convertible. Due to the addition of a supercharger system, which produces 9 psi boost, the 5.0L V8 engine is capable of generating 774 HP (569 kW). The 0-60 mph acceleration time is estimated 3.2 seconds.
In addition, Hennessey added to the Mustang CarbonAero front splitter, side sills, and rear lip spoiler, in-house made H10 light weight wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires behind which are the brembo racing brake upgrade added at all four corners. By the way, the HPE750 Supercharged Mustang is the first and only 2015 Mustang to attain a verified top speed of 200 mph.
2016 VelociRaptor 650 Supercharged Ford F-150 Pick-up truck
At last but not least, the visitors of the SEMA Show will also have the opportunity to see the well-known 2016 VelociRaptor 650 Supercharged Ford F-150 Pick-up truck. Its supercharged 5.0L V8 engine produces 650 HP (478 kW). The 0-60 mph acceleration happens in 4.9 seconds.
