Hennessey's 660-HP Nissan GT-R

We're still waiting for the official performance numbers for the Nissan GT-R, but what we do know is that it's more powerful than its predecessor. The next Godzilla earns an extra 38 horses. But in the timeless mix of testosterone, power, and speed, more horses is always better. Hennessey offers a number of ways to boost your GT-R's performance, and its latest is the GTR650. This beast is sure to leave all those sissies in the stock, 523-hp 2011 GT-R bright green.

Hennessey's new GT-R package includes upgrades like a tweaked ECU, Sumo pipes, and high flow injectors. Those upgrades combine to bring the GTR650's output up to 662 horses and 638 lb-ft. For those looking for more than just a raw power upgrade, Hennessey will also offer a transmission clutch upgrade, premium wheel/tire package, KW adjustable coil-over shocks, an uprated clutch pack, carbon fiber body components, and a Sumo electronic exhaust cutout, among other pieces.

You'll also get Hennessey premium floor mats and badging around the exterior and interior.

Hennessey hasn't indicated exactly how much performance the upgraded GT-R will deliver, but with Nissan's own new GT-R hovering right around the 3-second to 62 mph mark, we can expect it to be quick. The even more intense GTR800, which packs 813 hp and 704 lb-ft, hits 62 mph just north of Veyron territory: 2.6 seconds. That model includes some tinkering with Nissan's twin turbos, which the 650 leaves alone.

Hennessey also offers GTR600 and 700 packages, so you can pretty much customize your desired performance level. The GTR650 gives you just one more option for the juiced-up, pavement-hungry GT-R of your dreams.
