Hennessey Boosts the McLaren MP4-12C to 700HP

Texan tuner Hennessey is the place for all things speed. Whether it be twin-turbocharged Jeep, a topless Ferrari, or a 1,200 horsepower Venom GT. This tuning house speaks speed, and they speak it very well.

It was only a matter of time that they would get their hands on the already awe-inspiring achievement that is the McLaren MP4-12C. They’ve made it even more powerful–and more frightening.

Under the hood, the twin-turbocharged V8 is given an extra 88 horsepower, bringing the total output to 700 screaming horses. 0-60 mph is managed in only 2.8 seconds and a quarter mile run takes only 10.3 seconds.

This extra boost in power comes via an upgraded ECU, intercoolers, heat exchanger cooling and a new set of stainless steel exhausts. For all you lucky McLaren owners out there, you can have Hennessey hop up your ride for a measly $19,500. Chump change, right?
