Has Hennessy ever had experience with longitudinally mid-mounted engines?

As far as I know, this may be Hennessey's first hybrid vehicle with a longitudinal engine. Would be great if they posted up videos of some of the development process.

We'll just have to keep an eye out on their news page and right now, it's just mostly about their venom spyder.

Past experience is one thing but they also have the ready capital to get whoever they like on board with the project or some advisor to suggest how best to go about it.

All that matters for them at this point is the fact they have a brand people are willing to buy into, just a matter of coming out with a product that gets the sort of results people are looking for, in the past they've displayed a good understanding of that.

I don't know how they operate so I assumed most R&D was done by the owner a 1-2 additional people. With the cost of their kits, they most likely have the funds to hire someone who does have experience.

Just going to take a while since this will be their first hybrid.

Now that the first NSX has been delivered, how long do you think it'll be until Hennessey Performance can get their hands on an NSX?

I heard it will be in the 5k range, but that was way back, maybe they have changed it by now?

The problem with tuning a vehicle is the chance that you'll reduce the engine's reliability and shorten its lifespan.
