Hennessey builds 745kW/1264Nm Jeep Gladiator

So you think your bakkie is big and powerful?

Meet the Jeep Gladiator Maximus 1000, built by Hennessey Performance.

The first thing you should know about it, is that it’s equipped with a 6.2-litre Hellcat V8 that produces 1000 horsepower. That’s 745kW and 1264Nm of torque.

Other modifications include a 6.5-inch lift kit, 37-inch tyres and upgraded axles and propshafts to handle the extra grunt.

But that’s not why you’re here. You want to see it in action and hear how it sounds. Turn up the volume and check out the video below.
