Watch: Hennessey Pumps the R8 up to 912 HP

While Hennessey is better known for working on domestic cars, they do occasionally turn their hand to improving European cars, like this twin-turbo Audi R8.

The addition of a pair of twin-ball turbos, power goes from 562 hp all the way up to 912 hp, at the crank. On the dyno, meanwhile, the Hennessey R8 (known internally as the HPE 900) makes 752 hp at the wheels. All on pump gas.

Hennessey also adds a high-flow air induction system, dual inlet pipes, dual blow-off valves, stainless steel downpipes, and, perhaps most importantly of all, a 12,000 mile/one year warranty.

That’s good enough for a 0-60 time 2.6 seconds and a quarter-mile time of 9.8 seconds and 145 mph, according to Hennessey.
