Hennessey Tunes The 2009 Nissan GT-R/White Knuckle Express

Posted in Car Accessories, Custom, Nissan by Suzanne Denbow | December 15th, 2008 | 2 Responses |

We knew it was only a matter of time, and our patience has finally been rewarded by the Hennessey Nissan GT-R. The same guys that brought you the underwear-soiling performance of the Hennessey Dodge Challenger have unleashed their tuning prowess on the 2009 Nissan GT-R. The result: Godzilla 600 and Godzilla 700 Nissan GT-R Hennessey Performance packages. Excluding the price of the GT-R itself, the Hennessey upgrade packages cost $14,500 and $24,500, respectively, but if you’ve got that kind of dough (and couldn’t care less about adhering to the terms of your warranty) it’s definitely money well spent. As the numbers would suggest, each Hennessey GT-R package will boost engine output to the same unit borne in their names. Accordingly, the Godzilla 600 will enable your Nissan GT-R to produce 600-hp and 570 lb-ft of torque while the Godzilla 700 tweaks your output to 700-hp and 630 lb-ft of torque.

Of course, while we are always enthusiastic about anything Hennessey (or Foose) turns out, we can’t help but be slightly wary of what appears to be the Ricer from Hell.

    Hennessey makes no mention of upgrading the fuel system, or the ecu. I doubt he can make the claimed power. There are going to need to be other upgrades to handle it.

    Although at least it doesn’t look like this GT-R from Florida.

    Yeah, but will it void the warranty?

    Oh who am I kidding, Hennessy has all the car-tuning finesse of a ball-peen hammer to the toe. They do good work, but their balls-to-the-wall approach tends to result in uncontrollable monsters, not refined performance cars.
