US-based tuner Hennessey Performance has turned its attention to the McLaren 600LT, extracting more than 1000bhp from its turbocharged V8
We don’t feel the 592bhp 600LT needs much more power. However, Hennessey Performance thinks otherwise, as it has announced 700bhp, 800bhp and 1000bhp tuning packages for the already blisteringly fast McLaren 600LT, the most powerful of which it claims results in a 0-100kph time of just 2.1secs.
Next up is the 805bhp, 722lb ft ‘HPE800’ package, which helps the 600LT eclipse the power output of the $970,000+ Senna. Similar modifications to the HPE700 package can be found under the engine cover, but with the factory turbo and intercooler systems require ‘modification’ to bring it to the 800bhp mark. 0-100kph is cracked in a quoted 2.4secs, while the quarter mile is completed in 10.1secs at 232kph.
The most powerful package, the 1001bhp, 865lb ft ‘HPE1000’ upgrade, takes the 600LT from 0-100kph in a staggering 2.1secs and allows it to cover the quarter mile in just 9.6secs at 251kph. As you might imagine,
Whether or not such power is necessary
