Hennessey Performance has started making deliveries of their new HPE600 Lincoln Navigator SUV.
We got a good look at Hennessey’s fast luxury SUV last week when it underwent testing on a dyno. Power was measured to be 500 hp at the wheels at 3,800 RPM, while Hennessey says that the 600 horses in the ute’s name comes at around 6,000 RPM (according to Autoblog).
That’s up from the 450 hp that normally comes from the Navigator’s Raptor-sourced 3.5-L twin-turbo V6.
Now we have word that Hennessey is now making good on their new HPE600 upgrade, providing it to eager customers to the tune of $19,950 plus the price of the original SUV (which starts at $72,500, making your total Hennessey Navigator cost $92,450). You also get a 3-year or 36,000-mile warranty.
Only 200 of these ultra-fast Navigators are to be built, so if you want one you’d best get on the line to your authorized Hennessey-Lincoln dealer. Or you can order direct from the company here.
To achieve there ultra-powerful HPE600 upgrade, Hennessey gave the Navigator a new high-flow air induction system, turbo wastegate, a new intercooler, and a new stainless steel catback exhaust. ECU tuning was also performed, upgrading the software to take advantage of the new power produced.
Zero to sixty is over and done in 4.8 seconds, which amounts to a 0.7-second improvement over the standard Navigator. Hennessey also says that their HPE600 can run a quarter-mile in just 12.9 seconds. That’s not quite Jeep Trackhawk time, but it’s still very fast for an SUV.
Also notable for the HPE600 is the fact that it’s one of the few Hennessey vehicles to advertise optional brake upgrades. Normally Hennessey is only concerned with going fast and leaves stopping to other tuners.
Brembo provides 6-piston calipers and 15.1-inch rotors to help bring your speeding luxury SUV to a stop, while an optional suspension lowering will make it easier to get in and out of.
For those looking for a fast SUV that’s also got a hint of class, then the Hennessey HPE600 Lincoln Navigator might be your dream car.
