If you are crazy enough to wish for an off-road vehicle but with a performance like a hypercar, then the legendary American tuner, Hennessey Performance Engineering is ready to bring out your crazy desires to the real world.
The Jeep Gladiator modification project is called the Maximus 1000. Hennessey Maximus 1000 succeeded in conjuring a Jeep Gladiator by immersing a hunk of 1,000 hp monster engines.
The first stage of modification is to replace the default Pentastar V6 engine of the Jeep Gladiator JT with a 6,200 cc V8 Hemi supercharger engine. The V8 engine nicknamed ‘Hellcat’ has a peak performance reaching 717 hp and a giant torque of 821 Nm.
After that, Hennessey applied a modification kit with the HPE1000 code in the form of a stand-alone ECU which was able to order the latest fuel system from Hennessey to supply fuel more rapidly plus a cooling and exhaust system with a high performance set specifications. As a result, power has increased to reach 1,000 hp and 1,265 Nm of torque!
The off-road capability on the Hennessey Maximus 1000 is also enhanced by applying a 6.2-inch lift kit, a custom rim with a 20-inch Beadlock wrapped in BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 series tires.
The visual aspect is also made more frightening by using heavy-duty off-road bumpers on the front and rear, complete with additional LED lights mounted on the bumper and an LED bar mounted on the top of the windshield.
Reportedly, the Hennessey Maximus 1000 will only be produced in a limited release which is exactly 24 units. The price tag is quite dramatic, which is around $ 200,000.
Hennessey Performance Engineering also provides a 3-year guarantee or around 36 thousand miles or equivalent to 48 thousand kilometers to guarantee the quality of workmanship on every Hennessey Maximus 1000 that is sold to loyal customers.
Hennessey Performance Engineering takes about 4 months to build a Hennessey Maximus 1000. In addition, within a month, only two units of Hennessey Maximus 1000 will certainly come out of the Hennessey Performance Engineering headquarters located in Texas, United States.
