There are new details about the monstrous Hennessey Goliath 6×6October 18, 2018
The tuning studio specialists equipped the Chevrolet Silverado pickup with an additional axle and upgraded the technical component.
Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 is of course a very unusual car. The SUV received 6 wheels (3 axles), a “pumped” powerplant and impressive off-road capabilities. In total, about 100 copies of this car were produced. Sales started back in 2013, and the initial price was 379,000 euros.
According to the rumors, the initial price of a car is $ 375,000.
Now for the Hennessey Goliath 6×6, which is based on the American Chevrolet Silverado pickup. It is reported that the car was built on the basis of the modification of the Trail Boss Z71 – this version of the pickup is focused on the fierce off-road. Now, the car has received an impressive ground clearance of 400 mm, a new rear suspension, as well as 20-wheel rims, which are shod with off-road BFGoodrich tires, 37 inches in dimension.
A heavily upgraded version of the American pickup has under its hood a 6.2-liter V8 engine, the maximum power of which is 715 hp, and if this is not enough, the studio can increase this figure to 819. The German has a 5.5-liter V8 twin-turbo, whose power is equal to the maximum 700 hp, and the torque is 960 Nm, the American only 915 Nm of the moment.
Since the Hennessey Goliath 6×6 was created on the basis of a pickup truck, it can boast a rather large luggage compartment. Advantage? Of course!
A couple of weeks ago, the Hennessey tuning studio revealed the details of a 1600-horsepower engine from the Venom F5.
