Drive one off the lot, completely stock, and you’d be the proud owner of one badass machine, but it didn’t take the good folks at Hennessey Performance very long to turn one of these bad boys into a 1,000 horse power freak of a machine.
Named the “Hennessey Maximus 1000,” this absolute beast boasts a 6.2L Supercharged Hellcat V8 engine under the hood, good for 1,000 ponies and 933 lb-ft of torque, along with Hennessey 20-inch wheels, BFG 20-inch KD Off-Road Tires, an upgraded suspension with 6-inch lift, and more.
“We wanted to create the ultimate Jeep Gladiator,” said company founder John Hennessey. “MAXIMUS 1000 – the name says exactly what it is: Badassery on 4-wheels.”
According to the website, production is limited to just 24 units. The complete cost for the MAXIMUS 1000 is $200,000 US Dollars which includes the base Jeep Gladiator truck. Production will begin in July and build time for each vehicle will be approximately four months.
