Previously Hennessey Performance tuners made Cadillac Escalade incredibly luxurious with lots of wood and leather trim, but this time prepare to see charged version of the same model. Tuners literally gave double power to the famous Cadillac SUV. The company Hennessey Performance prepare for the rear-wheel drive car special package HPE800. While the package allows increasing an output of 420-horsepower (623 Nm) engine to 805 hp and 1121 Nm of torque, with rear wheel drive version will generate only 637 horsepower. Charged crossover can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds and it can drive the quarter mile in 12.3.

The vehicle only should get lower suspension, because with such power and big wheels, this car becomes much more difficult to control than the Dodge Viper or Challenger Hellcat. The price of the basic package is $ 55,000, upgraded wheels, brakes and tires cost another $ 25 000.
