claims to have performance parts/upgrades for AMG55s. As anyone heard of their work with AMG? Hennessey gets some great press coverage, particularly for their Vipers, but at the same time there are some real horror stories out there (lots of customers taking him to court...

I would even pay $1 to them, Ive heared uncountable horror stories about Henessey Performance. I think they just exagerate about their offerings and entering a clearly niche market such as offering exhaust system for a Bugatti Veyron and so on.

I dont know any one that has done upgrades to his or her car by Henessey.

That was what i was thinking....I was thinking of trading in my Land Rover on a Jeep Cherokee STR8 and noticed that there is a Hennessey edition of the STR8, so I did a little digging and on the Viper and Corvette boards the horror stories are amazing....if half of them are close to true I'm surprised the guy is not in jail for fraud/theft or ends up like Micky Thompson

There was a guy that had a hennessey viper that claims 1000hp here in Colorado, don't know if hennessey is a fraud but he sure was, he'd conned 1.5million dollars from his investors, Mana was his screen name, Alroumi should know who he is since he was a member of 6speedonline.
