    The Pagani. Lol I could care less about this kit car, Hennessy is silly. I’m sorry to threadjack but it’s worth it in this context to see what you can buy for the cost of a hacked up Lotus. The level of care, thought, and nuance put into Paganis is truly astounding. This is a special vehicle, there is nothing I would rather own.
    Now that's what you SHOULD get for a seven figure car...Hennessey...BLAH!

    they don't?
    You're link is a car for sale with bolt-ons/tune. No supercharger....13k miles for $72k. geez. Like how they advertise 475 and it hits a peak of 469BHP, just a tick over 375whp

    Looks like only thing they do for BMW is N63/N63 tuning and exhausting vending.

    That's what I'm saying. Bolt ons from other companies adds up to 72k? Is the car included or what? LMAO these guys are a joke, and need to wake up. 72k for bolt ons on an m3. LMFAO I still can't get over it.


    Edit: woops I guess it's for the whole car. The car is for sale, nvm. I still wounld'nt be surprised tho.

    Hennessey is a joke in the svt raptor world. There were a handful of their trucks that burned down. People skip the Hennessey package, grab a blower/tune from whipple FOR LESS, and have MORE power than hennessey's rebranded rousche supercharger. With a warrenty. They're a joke.

Some people care about warranty (likely the same group of people who don't have the connections/knowledge) - and that's likely what they think they are paying for.

    As far as performance/dollar, does it make financial sense? Not unless you are the first to tread the water - and for people like you, hell no.

    I am shocked this Hennessey was that much - I didn't know they went for this high of a price. That's ridiculous. As someone pointed out above, you could get a damn (almost) McLaren P1 (sold out... boo), or a full McLaren 12C for the same price. And I know for a fact the McLaren is engineered by geniuses/fanatics - and it's nearly perfect. The Hennessey on the other hand? Not so sure.

    I agree and so many people slurp his balls, it's idiotic. He announces turbo upgrades for EVERYTHING and doesn't support them with ANYTHING and people eat it up like its gospel. Well whatever I'm not going to do that.

    wow... I didn't even catch that. I saw the power rating, figured it was to the wheels - and guessed it was a blower.

    Agreed - the more I read about it, the less special it is, and the more insane the cost.

    At this point in my life, that's the car I would want/take/etc. - over anything out right now if I only had one car. I would love this car - more a P1, but to be honest, the MP4 is probably better overall. I would have taken the 911 GT3 prior, but this is my new overall fave

    i'm guessing the 7 figure price tag is just for stupid rich buyers

    why would they buy it? "it beat the veyron ss' top speed record, i have the fastest production car in the world"

    hennessey is calling this a production car which is laughable

So please tell me how this car is worth a starting price of $850k?

    It is essentially a kit car cause it uses parts and design from other cars and is built by a performance shop, not a car manufacturer. Like I said, sweet car, awesome car, but unfortunately it's Hennessy...
    Let's not forget there will be very limited numbers of these cars built. How much do you think the R&D costs were to design and built and of course there is going to be a good profit in this...do you not think he is entitled to this given it is his shop that built the car? John has people lined up to buy the car so why hate on him?

    Because of what he has done in this industry and the people he ripped off. Also his companies claims, pricing, etc.

    You're a fan and customer of his and that's fine. I won't support him though. I also won't forget what he did to people like everyone else seems to have.

    Do you think the Veyron test was done on the VW track in both directions?

    I am curious, with all of the haters, can someone please tell me what is wrong with the Venom. The car is a hyper car by almost any definition.

    I do not defend John's actions of the past but I know him and I also know the business practices since Dave got involved....most people don't even know who Dave is...

    FYI here is the full video.

    Like you said on your engine build thread, you hate it when people speak without all the facts. You have no idea how Dave runs the shop so you are completely uninformed on business practices of recent history.

    It's a kit car. Is it fast? Yes. It proves anything can be made fast. NRE can stick a motor in whatever you want to and run circle around this.

    This is very true. I'm sure Dave does great work as you imply. That does not absolve John.

    I am very well informed on Hennessey's past and that is exactly why I stated I will not support him.

    Excuse me? My car runs fine and strong. Mopped up a few supercharged M156's last time it was out. I don't mind yours being next if you want? That is if you want to see for yourself just how properly it runs. You can bring Henneseey and Dave to watch.

    Perhaps you should focus on the topic at hand rather than making an ad hominem attack.

    Joe, I tried to run you last year and you were a no show (something about empire building). You want to run me now, you come to me but nothing personal, congrats on your car being finished.

    I didn't know your car was now running at full boost without any trans problems (you got to admit though, your build took how many years). How much HP you making now.

    You tried to run me when my car wasn't finished so not sure what I was supposed to show up with or why I would say I would? Show up with what? An RC car? Not sure what this has to do with Hennessey either other than you defending him somehow by attacking me?

    Why would I need to go to to you when Weistec is in my backyard for supercharged 63 comparisons? Not worth the time or money for me.

    Who cares how many years? It's not your time it's mine. Nobody has done it in a shorter time period so it's irrelevant. My car is not even running full boost yet we'll see the numbers on full boost shortly. Or maybe not because then nobody will run me.

    Back to Hennessey.

    If the Veyron actually ran both ways on the test track I stand corrected.
