Whereas it was busy creating the Venom GT geared toward exceeding 300 mph, Texas tuner Hennessey Efficiency discovered the time to launch this in mid-2019: a six-wheeled model of the Chevrolet Silverado it dubs the ‘Goliath 6×6.’
Showcased within the video beneath, this beast is the kind of machine that might flip much more heads than the newest hypercar from Koenigsegg or Pagani. It exhibits simply how insane a pickup truck can grow to be for those who suppose outdoors the field and aren’t afraid to create one thing loopy.
The present obsession with 6×6 conversions will be largely attributed to the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 launched just a few years in the past. Hennessey’s Silverado-based Goliath 6×6 isn’t solely greater than the Mercedes but in addition extra highly effective.
After stretching out the mattress of the Silverado, Hennessey provides a second axle on the rear after which lifts the experience top by eight inches and matches a number of different bespoke suspension parts. It then turns its consideration to the powertrain, becoming the Silverado’s 6.2-liter V8 with a 2.9-liter supercharger that reinforces output to 705 hp and 675 lb-ft (914 Nm). As psychological as this may increasingly sound, the instance featured on this video packs much more grunt, because it has been upgraded to 800 hp.
Let’s be trustworthy, nobody wants a automobile like this. Not solely would it not be far too massive for regular parking areas, however we’d be frightened about operating over different vehicles when driving it out in public. Nonetheless, as a method of creating a press release, we are able to’t consider too many automobiles that do a greater job than the Goliath 6×6.
