Take a look at the first Ferrari produced by US tuning giants, Hennessey Performance. The Hennessey HPE700 Twin Turbo serves more as a testament to the company’s auto upgrade pedigree, enhancing the speedster’s horsepower and speed for the better. Its mid-mounted 4.5-litre V8 engine cranks up 738hp at 8,400 rpm and 532 lb-ft of torque at 5,600 rpm. That doesn’t include its extra 170-hp crankshaft. Speed-wise, the car zips rushes past 60 mph at 2.8 seconds.
It doesn’t stop there. Hennessy has fitted the 458 Spider with low-inertia ball-bearing turbochargers, twin wastegates and blow-off valves, and rear-mounted heat exchanger paired with dual-electric fans. The Hennessey also sits pretty on 20-inch monoblock forged wheels. And all of that is yours for $293,000. Cake up, gentlemen.
