And the freshest example of the sort comes from a Cadillac Escalade. Sure, the size of the Caddy might not recommend it as a sprinter, but Hennessey Performance begs to differ.
As such, the Texan developer has pitted an Escalade gifted with its HPE800 package (more on this below) against a factory stock Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk.
The process saw the two behemoths being thrown at each other on the drag strip found in Hennessey's back yard, with the result being nothing short of delicious.
For instance, while the Cadillac does seem to take off before the Jeep, it looks like the suspension of the first isn't quite ready for such starts, with the Escalade bouncing around like a V8 ball of rubber for a few moments.
So while the Jeep comes in 707-pony trim, the nameplate of the Escalade package points towards the 800 hp output of the Cadillac.
The main ingredients for this gym trip come from a 416ci stroker kit for the Caddy's V8 and a 2.9-liter blower delivering 10 psi of boost.
