You might find this hard to believe, but citizens of Rome had twisted notions of entertainment. We don't know who would pay to see a Gladiator meet his end, but many like to see their strength on display. If you are reading this, the notion of going into battle with a V6 will make you think twice, that's why our friends in Texas have built the ultimate weapon. Watch and listen as the Hennessey Maximus screams to 1,000 horsepower on the dyno.

Although strapped to the rollers, no Jeeps were harmed in filming this video. Instead, their Demon hearts were treated to a proper baseline tune while the rings and valves were broken in. That is just one way Hennessey Performance beats their competition.

After a proper street tune (including a jump on Interstate 10), each build is given fresh Pennzoil Synthetic and a MOPAR oil filter along with a full tank of Shell Premium. Are you not entertained? There will be thousands of Gladiators, but only 24 examples of the Maximus. Click the button below to learn more, and stay with us for all your Hennessey updates.
