Ho Ho Ho-ly shit and Merry X-Mas...The Hennessey Jeep Grand Cherokee HPE800 ($235,000) takes Jeep's top-of-the-line SUV and turns it into a veritable speed demon by expanding the factory Hemi V8 from 6.4 to 7.0 L and adding in a twin-turbo forced induction system to achieve 805 hp and a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds. Of course, all that power isn't useful if you can't harness it, which is why it also boasts an upgraded transmission system, 15.1-inch Brembo brakes in the front and rear, and a lowered, more sporty suspension, and to make sure no one mistakes it for the "regular" version, it also packs lighter alloy wheels, a carbon fiber front end, and a custom leather interior with an Alcantara steering wheel. It'll arrive in 24 well-appointed garages next year.

I really like it. If it wasn't so expensive. But then again, maybe we should give Hennessy the benefit of the doubt. He must do some good work if so many people keep going back to him. Maybe they are under new management. Maybe that's what it takes to get the WK2 a TT kit. Maybe his work is worth that much. The Venom is a sick car. I think we should give him a new start, with a new attitude from all of us.

A fair statement and some of you others may want to ask the guy in the #1 spot in the timeslip database what system he's running rather than gleaning your knowledge on things you read on the internet and decided to jump on the band wagon.

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this one out, and if you want to engage the improbability drive and wind up in some fairytale land where a JEEP with a riceboy body kit and what amounts to about $15,000 in parts costs ONE QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS, then you have LOST YOUR DAMN MINDS.

For the price of what is essentially a 590AWHP Jeep (assume 26% driveline loss) WK2, you can buy... yes... a FLEET of already overpriced brand-spankin-factory-new WK2s, one for the whole family, one for Tommy, One for Lisa, One for Mom, and One for Dad. Yes thats right kids... 4 WK2s can be in your driveway... Can't decide on a color, is the mineral grey just as hot as the red rock, or do you like the black better?! No problem!!! Just get one of EVERY color!!

-OR-

You can purchase a Jeep that:

1) Doesn't exist yet except on paper, hasn't logged a single mile becuase in physical form, it hasn't even entered our universal time space continuum yet.
2) Is mysteriously tuned through God-knows-what, or maybe, isn't even tuned at all!
3) Is from a notorious thief, liar, and propaganda specialist second-only to Gerbles, that has been BANNED from even this corporate-suck-up Forum, TWICE.

I'm sorry Bernie but whatever relevance some scrap of paper in your forum timeslip database has regarding the credibilty of someone blanketing this turd pile with empathy is arbitrary speculation. The tentacles of JH's treachery reach back a decade before this forum even existed, and go far beyond whatever ridiculous squabble is posted here; its bigger than you, me, or anyone else, and its got more documentation behind it than the most recent Federal tax legislation.

So I say Good for JH. I anticipate history will repeate itself (for those of you who were here the last time this happened). He will brandish a bunch of cash, and phoney good will, and this "new" attitude to try to push his products. But in the end, its the same company, the same Ponzi scheme, and the same broke-down nearly stock Chrysler product that costs some rich idiot as much as a 5 bedroom house.

... and if thats what it takes to keep the gallactically stupid and insanely wealthy buyers of this quarter million dollar vunda-Jeep off of this forum and in their own JH world, then Thank God for Hennssey.

LOL you should seriously write reviews for Motor Trend or Road & Track etc. Readers would actually get REAL WORLD feedback and be able to make informed financial decisions on which vehicle would suit their needs best. Its ridiculous how much companies like Hennessey are in the back pocket of the major mags to get amazing reviews and make people believe that spending 200+k on a jeep is practical vs the performance you actually receive:eek:

But it has a warranty... He backs his stuff up! lol Of course for the money he wants, you could have not one but at least 3 higher performance Jeeps for the price of his one. Works out pretty well because if the black one breaks you just take the red one....

Build a better performing Jeep for at least 1/3 of the price, and put a fancy tag on it like Hennessey just to make it look cool. It is not that he makes the best products, it is that he has the best visibility for his products. However, on the other hand people keep paying for it so he will keep selling it.
