In the realm of high-performance vehicles, Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) has long been a name synonymous with speed and power. Celebrating 33 years of crafting fast cars, trucks, and SUVs, HPE is now taking its expertise to the next level with the introduction of the ‘Demon 1700 Twin-Turbo’ upgrade for the 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170.
Founded in 1991, Hennessey has earned its stripes by pushing the boundaries of automotive performance. Over the years, the demand for their powerful vehicles has soared, prompting a strategic shift from a high-volume tuning company to a full-fledged manufacturer. Recognizing the need to cater to the most discerning enthusiasts, Hennessey is proud to announce the birth of a bespoke in-house department – “Hennessey Special Operations” (HSO).
This exclusive division will focus on crafting ultra-high-horsepower vehicles in limited production runs, targeting a niche market of enthusiasts hungry for unmatched performance and exclusivity.
At the heart of HSO’s inaugural project is the ‘Demon 1700 Twin-Turbo’ – a comprehensive upgrade that transforms the already potent Challenger SRT Demon 170 into an automotive beast. The process involves replacing the factory-supercharged V8 with an all-new blueprinted motor and transmission. The blower makes way for a pair of massive turbochargers, elevating the power from 1,025 to a jaw-dropping 1,700 horsepower.
The performance figures of the ‘Demon 1700 Twin Turbo’ are nothing short of astounding. Running on E85 ethanol, this coupe is set to conquer the quarter-mile in a blistering 7.9 seconds at a mind-boggling 175 mph. The sheer power and speed are not just numbers; they are a testament to Hennessey’s commitment to pushing the limits of what’s possible on four wheels.
HSO is not just about creating powerful vehicles; it’s about offering an exclusive ownership experience. With only 12 ‘Demon 1700 Twin-Turbo’ models slated for production, each starting at a base price of around $200,000 (excluding the donor 2023 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170), ownership of this hypermuscle car becomes a statement of individuality.
Enthusiasts keen on securing their spot as proud owners of the world’s most potent and exclusive Demon are encouraged to reach out to HSO via phone at (713) 874-9520 or by visiting the dedicated Hennessey HSO website.
