We have seen the well-known coach give free rein to pick up American in the desert, but the time has come to show us all the virtues of the Hennessey Maximus 1000 on the asphalt. It is, without a doubt, one of the most impressive creations developed on the basis of the model
Only with its name you can already get an idea of what the figure that appears in it means. The already powerful V8 block supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat with 716 HP of power has seen its power increased to the chilling figure of 1,000 hp (745 kW) and 1,264 Nm of maximum torque.
The engine is associated with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
To achieve this, Hennessey has installed its well-known HPE1000 package and has carried out numerous modifications to the engine block. Among them we can find an optimization of the ECU, a reworked wiring and the installation of a new radiator, a fuel system and a stainless steel exhaust system.
The Hennessey Maximus 1000 it’s not just brute force
On an aesthetic level, the modifications are no less striking, with new front and rear bumpers, additional LED lighting, a new suspension packages that raises the ground clearance and new 20 inch wheels Shod with BFG KD off-road tires.
Inside the novelties are more subtle, with a new leather upholstery in which they are embroidered Hennessey and Maximum. Of course, the creation of the specialist is not exactly cheap, since the final figure reaches $ 200,000, Jeep Gladiator included. There will be only 24 copies and to make each one of them will take the specialist four months.
