Hennessey Performance has been making fast cars go faster since 1991 and it all started with a Mitsubishi 3000GT and Pikes Peak and some twenty-something testosterone. From there the namesake Hennessey has grown into customizing and adding horsepower to thousands of cars from Vipers, Mustangs, Camaros and even your token Europeans.
Speed up to last year, Hennessey built a Lotus inspired Venom GT housing a Corvette ZR1 6.2Litre V8 boasting 1243bhp that took on the record for worlds fastest car stating a speed of 270.49mph.
This Texas native plays the horsepower game for real…….
Have you ever wondered why you see Shell branded gas stations in a movie, why James Bond drank Heineken beer, why an actor wears persol sunglasses or why the good guys drive Chevrolet products?
Jeff and Ethan talk to Sandy Ikeda from Corbias Entertainment and even though she threatens to kill them, they share a look at product placement and how secret CIA-ish it really is. We would tell you more but then WE would have to kill YOU.
The guys discuss their favorite fuel smells and Flat 12 Gallery’s shop full of movie cars Jeff has brought in from California from the Robocop Kia, a 1966 Volvo 122S that has been on “Criminal Minds”, “Blow” with Johnny Depp and “Anchorman” to the crazy retro 1979 Camaro that looks like it just drove off the set of Corvette Summer.
