Hennessey’s 1200hp Trackhawk Rips A Time Quicker Than A Bugatti Chiron

Jeep’s Trackhawk is a 6.2-liter V8 demon that’s certifiably batshit crazy on its own accord – trust us, we ripped it around a track earlier this year – and we can confirm it’s a 700 horsepower raging bull that needs nothing more to convince you otherwise.

Well, aftermarket outfitter Hennessey don’t do things by the book, which is why they’ve jacked up 24 Trackhawks with a stack of performance mods to create a machine that is capable of a 0-100 time quicker than a Bugatti Chiron.

Read that sentence again. An SUV that’s quicker than a Bugatti – 0.2 seconds faster, actually, squirting to 100 kph in just 2.3 seconds. The Hennessey Trackhawk now bangs out 1,200 horsepower and 1,100 ft lbs of torque at the motor and 1,003 horsepower and 892 ft lbs of torque at the wheels.

“Our team really enjoys pushing the limits and discovering what’s possible with the vehicles we build,” says company founder and CEO John Hennessey. 

“Some may say that it’s pointless to build an SUV quicker than nearly every supercar and hypercar on the market today. I say that is exactly the point. Thankfully, we have many customers who also share our passion.”

In the video below, watch the Hennessey Trackhawk tear up the tarmac in a squirt to the quarter mile which it achieves in just 9.66 seconds, topping out at 233 km/h.

The Jeep Hennessey Trackhawk clocks in at $179,000 USD ($251,000 AUD) and is available for export to international markets
