Hennessey Launches Ferrari 458 Spider Upgrade Kit

Last time we checked, Hennessey was busy working on the 2014 Corvette Stingray, which will come four power upgrade packages ranging from 600 HP to 1,100 HP. Meanwhile, the Texas-based specialist has launched an upgrade program for the Ferrari 458 that takes the Italian supercar’s output to an amazing 738 HP figure.

Called HPE700 Twin Turbo, the Ferrari 458 upgrade package features twin ball bearing superchargers, an improved fuel system, duel air induction filters, an air-to-water intercooler system, and many more. Addition upgrades available from Hennessey include carbon fiber body parts, Monoblock wheel upgrade, KW adjustable suspension, and carbon fiber and leather interior upgrades.

The new power output, which is an improvement of 160 HP over the standard model (578 HP), enables the 458 Spider to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in only 2.8 seconds and run the quarter mile in 10.5 seconds at 137 mph (220 km/h). The new Hennessey Ferrari 458 kit costs $59,995 and comes with a one-year/12,000-mile warranty. The Hennessey Ferrari 458 Spider will be showcased at the Concorso Italiano in Monterey later this week.

“The HPE700 Twin Turbo 458 delivers a sound and driving experience that few road cars can offer. Aventador owners, beware - this car will take you by surprise!” ” said company founder John Hennessey.
