Texas-based tuning house Hennessey has developed a set of performance upgrades for McLaren’s newest supercar: the MP4-12C. While the car comes straight out of Woking with 600 hp, the HPE800 program will deliver (the clue’s in the name) 800 hp. This is achieved through an ECU re-flash, swapping out the twin-turbo/intercooler setup with Hennessey’s own hardware and installing a titanium exhaust system. The big H also offers some carbon-fiber aerodynamic appendages to make the most of this extra power, along with new monoblock alloy wheels wearing Michelin Pilot Super Sport performance rubber, plus some carbon-fiber, Alacantara and leather interior highlights. Hennessey has, however, decided to leave the brakes and suspension untouched, since they are already about as good as it gets.
Does it drive as good as it looks? Yes it does! #superstreet #drivingisbelieving #bmwi8 #azusacanyon
