Ever seen a 3-tonne Chevy Tahoe do donuts? This one with the Hennessey HPE500 Supercharged Upgrade does just that to send off its old set of tires.
At the owner’s request, the test drivers at Hennessey Performance shredded a set of old tires that the donor car had come with. Context? Take a look at the white Chevrolet Tahoe tuned by the Texas-based tuning house. It’s a 508 hp beast with all the bells and whistles of the HPE500 Supercharged Upgrade from Hennessey.
A generous 150+ horses increment over the standard Tahoe lends this juggernaut a new set of unusual and amazing skills. Like the ability to make donuts at the drop of a hat. In this case, the hat drop was initiated by the guy who paid for the mods to be made.
On arriving to take delivery of his souped-up Tahoe, the customer informed the team that he’d like to send off the old tires in style. A plate of donuts straight out of the oven was the obvious solution. Plus, it’d also give the customer a fair idea of the monster underneath that squeaky clean white clothing. After watching the video, we’re damn sure that he got what he asked for.
Available for 2015-2019 Chevrolet Tahoe 5.3L DI V8, the Hennessey HPE500 Supercharged Upgrade comprises of a 2.9-liter supercharger, high flow intercooling system, new engine management calibration, gaskets, fluids, hardware, lots of new badging, serial-numbered plagues and a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty.
