At the end of every week, we try to find the best way to leave work for the weekend. Sure a V10 Audi R8 offers nice acceleration, but the 5.2 liter V10 leaves a lot of potential power on the table. John Hennessey and his team think about boost day and night. In the form of giant turbos or their own brand of supercharger, they are known for doubling the horsepower of their customer's cars.

If you thought Hennessey Performance only built domestic cars, think again. He admits they don't get many R8 or Huracan examples, and we agree that the R8 has a more understated interior between the siblings. So he strapped a few cameras in the passenger seat and headed to a part of Mexico that looks eerily like Interstate 10 west of Houston. Mufflers were eliminated in this kit because big turbos muffle engine noise just as effectively. At legal cruising speeds the cockpit is only 5% louder than stock. Rolling into the gas at the top end of his drag strip, the R8 went through the quarter mile at 151 mph. He also said its very close in performance to the Venom GT, which has a top end speed of 163 mph. With a 0-60 time of 2.4 seconds, this car will hang with the most exclusive hypercars and it costs a fraction of their price. This comprehensive package comes with 300 miles of tuning and a warranty.
