If that brand new Ferrari isn’t fast enough for you out of the factory, the people at Hennessey Performance are awaiting your phone call. The new Hennessey HPE700 Twin Turbo Ferrari 458 takes the famed 458 and squeezes even more power out of its already unreal drivetrain. In addition to the standard engine of the 458, the Hennessey mod adds a pair of low-inertia, ball-bearing turbochargers that add 170 horsepower to the pedal for a total of 738 hp combined. Slam the pedal to the floor, and the Hennessey HPE700 will climb to 60 mph in just 2.8 seconds– and scream past a 1/4 mile in 10.5 seconds total.
Just how rare is it for a car to crack the 3 second acceleration barrier? Only a handful of current production vehicles boast that kind of speed, and they usually carry a 7-figure price tag. This one, however, can be yours for just over a quarter million. The team at Hennessey Performance can produce one to order if you’ve got the folding money. And if you do, be sure to look us up if you need a friend in the passenger seat. Please excuse our excited screaming. [via uncrate]
