Hennessey replaces Santa’s sleigh with its 800-horsepower 2013 HPE800 Twin Turbo Jeep

Andrea Divirgilio / December 22, 2011

If Santa is looking for a luxurious outing this Christmas, he might as well try the new Hennessey 2013 HPE800 Twin Turbo jeep, which will pack in more than most of the SUV’s in the market today. With an engine displacement of around 7.0 liters, and a total of output of 805HP from it, the machine gets several new upgrades from the previous 2012 engine, and will put the vehicle on par in terms of speed and pick up, with the likes of the Lamborghinis and Ferraris. Coupled with the red paintjob on the exterior, the Cherokee jeep from Hennessey will truly set the roads on fire like no other. Like the best things out there, only 24 of these SUV’s will ever be created.

From what is now going to be the talk of the town, the HPE800 SUV, will sport more advancements, than what was seen in previous cars from this category. On the exterior, there will be 20-inch alloy wheels with carbon fiber clippings, special red color paintjob with front and rear end spoilers. There will also be special 15-inch Brembo brakes in the front and back, which would be essential during emergency situations and rough surfaces, with high speeds. When a car takes you from 0-100 km/ph in just 3.5 seconds, safety will always be an issue and hopefully Hennessey sees to it that you don’t worry about that. On the interior, one would see special crafted alcantara leather upholstery on the seats, door sides, and ceilings too. We don’t know what the color combo would be, but be assured of an exterior matched version for it, and also some other customized editions. Also, expect a high end infotainment system plugged in.

We had also told you what the engine specifications and capabilities are, but in summary, it’s a 7-liter twin-turbo charged machine with a 5-speed automatic transmission. Its main capabilities are amply made clear when you note that the SUV weighs close to 2,500 kg, and driving such a load needs extra muscle. Without being engineers, our suggestion to the company could only be for a lighter body next time. However, if you are already to buy one of these, then get ready to shell out $235,000 for the base model apart from any customizations that you may need. For another masterpiece from Hennessey, do check out their Venom GT Spyder. Looks like the speed seekers are in for their money on these ones!
