Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 Debuts with a $295,000 Price Tag

  Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 Debuts with a $295,000 Price Tag <p>New Ford Raptor not sold separately</p>The extra set of wheels is available for 2017 and 2018 Ford Raptor F-150s and the price starts at $295,000. And we thought a $100,000 Super Duty was a lot of money.

Chevrolet just debuted its most powerful Corvette ever, but that sports car has nothing on a special tuner Camaro in terms of power. The Hennessey Exorcist, based on the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, hits the track in a new video.

  Check out the First Photos of the Hennessey Venom F5's Interior <p>More carbon fiber than you can shake a stick at</p>Today, though, Hennessey revealed the Venom F5's cabin with a series of interior shots. Based on the teaser we'd already seen, we had a pretty good idea that it would use a lot of carbon fiber, but holy moly that sure is a lot of it. Pretty much any surface that isn't carbon fiber looks like it's covered in leather or faux suede. Even the door handles appear to be leather. The air conditioning vents and center controls, however,look like they're made out of aluminum.

John Heinricy, multiple SCCA national champion and retired GM engineer, took the Exorcist to the track to show a new owner what he is in for. Unsurprisingly, he's all smiles as the Exorcist barrels down the runway at 130 mph. Youmay want to turn the volume down on your computer just slightly before watching the video, because this engine produces a hell of a sound. Or better yet, turn it up.

The Exorcist uses the same 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 as the standard Camaro ZL1. But it makes an additional 350 hp thanks to a larger supercharger, upgraded intercooler, special camshaft, ported factory heads, long-tube headers, bigger intake system, and revised ECU. Although Hennessey claims the Exorcist makes 1,000 hp, a dyno testearlier this year suggested an output of 1,103 ponies.

What Happens To Your Christmas Tree At 174 MPH?

  What Happens To Your Christmas Tree At 174 MPH? O Christmas tree, o Christmas tree, how speedy are thy branches. The holidays are here, and folks that celebrate Christmas need to get their tree up quickly because the big day is coming very soon. In a new video, Hennessey Performance shows the fastest way it knows to haul an evergreen home. The company mounts some temporary roof rails to a new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Widebody and straps a tree to the muscle car. The supercharged machine then heads out onto Continental Tires' test track in Texas to see how a conifer affects the car's top speed.

Hennessey only plans to build 100 Exorcists per year. The car costs $55,000, not including the price of a stock Camaro ZL1, and is available directly through Hennessey or at certain Chevrolet dealerships. Fortunately, buyers are covered by a two-year, 24,000-mile warranty.

Camaro Con 2 in Promenade Temecula Was a Camaro Haven .
When we arrived at Camaro Con 2, it was like a scene right out of the Fast and Furious movie franchise—cars parked with the hoods popped, along with some cammed LS-motivated cars surging around the aisles looking for a quality parking spot. Yoked-out dudes and hot girls in short-shorts were walking around as well. So how is this event different from any other event? These were all Camaros (and a few Firebirds), and about 800 of them converged at the Promenade Temecula on Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.Camaro enthusiasts came from all over. Some drove up to seven hours just to partake in this amazing five-hour-long gathering.
