From the company that brought you the off-the-Richter-scale VelociRaptor 6x6 and countless force-fed supercars, comes another wild pick up for those for who thinks too much is never enough.
Hennessey Performance has taken to the new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and given it a makeover that is designed to break necks when it is cruising The Strip in Vegas or blasting across the claypans of Death Valley.
Hennessey starts with an off the showroom stock Silverado that is equipped with the Trail Boss Z71 off road pack. The most obvious addition to the Chevy truck is the additional length and bespoke third axle to turn it into a leviathan 6x6, though there’s more to it underneath.
Standard engine on the Z71 is the 6.2-lter LS V8 petrol mill and Hennessey adds its HPE700 pack, comprised of a 2.9-liter supercharger breathing 7psi of boost in to the V8 to make 705-horsepower (525kW). If that’s not enough there’s always the 800HP stroker engine option to really blow your mind (and budget).
Other standard equipment on the Goliath 6x6 includes an eight-inch suspension lift to clear 37-inch BFG muddies on 20-inch HPE wheels, LED lights, Hennessey front and rear bumpers and roll bar. Other options add a Brembo brake upgrade and custom interior packages.
If you have a US$375,000-sized wad of cash burning a hole in your Swiss bank account then you’ll need to get in quick to secure your 6x6 Goliath. Hennessey only plans to build 24 of them and they are expected to be snapped up.
