All Ahmad Ali wanted was a Chevrolet Corvette souped up to have enough horsepower to defibrillate God. To realize this dream, the Qatari went to one of the most famous names in the car tuning business: John Hennessey. But three years later, he is still fighting Hennessey Performance Engineering for more than $70,000…
Hennessey Performance Engineering is currently the only tuner in North America who owns their own test track—but that could change for the right buyer. Lonestar Motorsports Park, the IHRA-sanctioned quarter-mile drag strip next to Hennessey’s headquarters in Sealy, Texas, is up for sale.
The insane $1 million Hennessey Venom GT's managed to sneak into Texas without setting off any USGS seismic sensors. The Lotus-bodied, 1,200-hp V8-powered Venom GT will debut at SEMA next week, where it will embarrass outrageously-painted Hyundai Tiburons.
