“If 650 horsepower is good, then 750 horsepower is better,” explains John Hennessey. And so, welcome to his company’s modified Lamborghini Urus with, you guessed it, 750hp.
An ECU tune and new stainless-steel exhaust system liberate those 100 additional ponies, along with 990Nm of torque (up from the Lambo’s original 850Nm). Such is the force of this new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, it’ll do 0-95km/h in 2.65 seconds.
We could go on to list a number of high profile, really very fast hypercars that hover around the same time, but it doesn’t matter because 2.65secs in an SUV is nuts.
The upgrade will cost US$24,950, and Hennessey will need four weeks to finish it. Oh, and you have to supply your own Lamborghini Urus.
We’ll give you a moment to take this all in.
