We’ve grown accustomed to viewing outrageous autos roll out of Hennessey’s Texas-primarily based garage, everything from supercars with asinine amounts of horsepower to absurd six-wheeled pickup trucks with asinine ranges of horsepower. But this, billed as “the world’s initial 6-wheel-travel Hyper-GT” and codenamed ‘Project Deep Area,’ is anything else entirely. Hennessey suggests it will be driven by electric power with six particular person electric powered motors (however of class even now with asinine amounts of horsepower) and boast a unique diamond-shaped, lounge-like interior seating format. And that’s just the commence of it.
Of course it truly is heading to be speedy, with a rumored output of all around 2,400 electrified horsepower. Says corporation founder and CEO John Hennessey, “We consider that ‘Deep Space’, with 6 electrical motors combined with 6 driven wheels, could be the world’s fastest accelerating four-seater from zero to 200 mph!” It truly is also likely to be pricey, with a projected commencing cost of $3 million for every device. And it will be exceptional, with creation capped at 105 units.
The generation edition will be crafted completely out of carbon fiber and will boast a bespoke interior accessed via a pair of gull-wing doors. Under no circumstances 1 to shy absent from grandeur, Hennessey says the driver will sit in entrance of “the world’s first VVIP (Really Incredibly Vital Human being) lie-flat automotive seat” in the very same way a personal jet delivers passage for a single similarly significant occupant. Obviously, there will be place for golf clubs, far too.
Why six wheels (or why not 8)? Hennessey points out: “I’ve been building some of the world’s quickest accelerating automobiles for a long time, but they have constantly been general performance-limited by mechanical grip. Six-wheeled electrical propulsion is the alternative. The technologies is unprecedented in this phase – equally ahead-wondering and modern. Our style and engineering crew is fired up about embracing the upcoming.”
Speaking of the future, Hennessey expects to begin creation of no matter what the ultimate edition of this on-paper-only prototype will be known as in 2026. And you will find a lot more to occur. This will be the very first of 3 all-new cars coming from Hennessey above the subsequent 10 a long time. In other words, stay tuned.
