After a long time in the automotive tuning game, the people at Hennessey Performance have finally applied their prowess to a Ferrari. More specifically, they’ve souped up a Ferrari 458 Spider with plenty of upgrades and enhancements.
Some of those enhancements include an extra 170 horsepower and 532 lb-ft of torque. This allows the Hennessey Performance Ferrari 458 Spider HPE700 Twin Turbo to hit 60 miles per hour in 2.8 seconds, and cross a quarter mile in just 10.5 seconds (at 137 miles per hour!).
As for visual upgrades, there aren’t any, other than some subtle Hennessey branding. But true gearheads will be able to tell the difference almost immediately after getting behind the wheel. Of course, they’ll have to pay almost $60,000 to have the upgrades installed on their Ferrari 458 Spiders first. For more info, head to Hennessey’s website here.
Finally, you can take a look at the Ferrari 458 Spider HPE700 Twin Turbo in action in both the gallery up top and the video below.
