The key to its performance is an uprated version of Chevrolet’s LS9 6.2-liter V-8 engine. Thanks to a custom supercharger and intercooler package, Hennessey engineers have managed to dial output up to 755 horsepower and 763 pound-feet of torque--enough to see 0-60 times in the sub-3.5 second range and the quarter mile pass in under 11 seconds.
Necessary modifications to the supercar powertrain include a cold air intake kit, high-flow fuel injectors, stainless steel headers, a heavy duty clutch, a race shift knob and short throw shifter, and a high-flow exhaust.
