Hennessey Performance has developed a reputation for building all sorts of fast vehicles, everything from souped-up Ford Mustang models to supercharged, V8-powered F-150 Raptors. But for those looking for something a little more, shall we say, large and luxurious, the Texas-based tuner is also offering a seriously fast Lincoln Navigator. Dubbed the HPE600, the Hennessey Navigator is more than capable of getting little Billy to soccer practice on time, no matter how far behind his parents are running.
In stock form, the Navigator produces 450 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque from its 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which is more than enough for most folks. Regardless, the Hennessey Navigator takes things up a few notches thanks to a host of updates including a high-flow air induction system, turbo wastegate modifier, air-to-air front-mounted intercooler upgrade, intercooler piping upgrade, stainless steel catback exhaust system, and an engine management computer software upgrade.
The result of all that work is a cool 600 horsepower at 6,000 rpm, a 4.8 second 0-60 time, and a quarter-mile time of just 12.9 seconds at 107 miles-per-hour. Not too shabby for a heavy, full-size luxury utility, and a big improvement over the stock numbers of 5.9 seconds and 14.5 seconds, respectively.
And if all of that isn’t enough, buyers can also also opt for optional upgrades including 22 inch Monoblock wheels wrapped in performance tires, along with Brembo front brakes to help slow this behemoth down.
Hennessey even offers a 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty on the hot rod Lincoln, and each example is individually numbered via interior and underhood plaques, so passengers will know that it’s something a bit more special than the average Navigator.
Of course, we’d probably just leave those optional wheels off and keep our Hennessey Navigator HPE600 in full-blown sleeper mode. Mainly because we just never know when a rival dad might want to square up at the stoplight on the way to soccer practice.
