A lot of trickle down money from items like this.
Guessing you are on the list to get one


I thought Henessey was a whiskey/alcohol and that guy was letting people know how he ended up with such an ugly ride

Aint that the truth. Iím going to guess that the workers will probably be paid about the same hourly wage to build this thing as they do anything else. Maybe one or two engineers got a bonus for designing it but but thats about it.

Yea. I have no idea how this guy is still in business or not in jail. The stories I have read about him are unbelievable! His rap sheet as a defendant in law suits is like a phone book!

Found this on YouTube a few weeks back. Hennessy claims a few are already sold to the middle east I think.

Your comparison fails in that those are purpose built.
....this is a bad interpretation of '80's custom car club *******ization by a guy who does shoddy work.

I think it needs to be a dually so you would have to buy 10 tires at a time.

I heard some bad stuff way back when he started, when he became a household name after making the 866 hp Viper, and couldn't keep up with demand, but now a days, my understanding is Hennessey has cleaned up his act. I could be totally wrong, but has there been any lawsuits from recent years?

I ask because he is on my short list for some mods to a car I want upgraded.

Other than my first car (67 Camaro) I've regretted the 2WD trucks I've bought-I'll never buy another one. I can't fathom how anyone comes to the conclusion that a 2WD w/highway tires is even close to comparable to a 4WD with good tires.

If a 2WD works for you, good for you. But you're in the minority in Texas.
Drive through Houston. 50% of the trucks are 2wd, and the number of lifted 2wd's will blow your mind. All show, no go.

I knew a guy personally through the raptor community that had his raptor built into a luxury pre runner. For some reason he sent it to Hennessey for them to do the work to it and during the first test drive the fuel system they installed poorly leaked all over the headers. Truck completely burnt to the ground and hennessey acted like they had nothing to do with it pretty much.
