Following the reveal of the insane Goliath 700 Supercharged truck based on the GMC Sierra platform several months ago, Hennessey finally started shipping its constituent components.

As its name suggests, the $26,950 HPE700 Supercharged kit revolves around a high-end supercharger upgrade. The unit itself is 2.9 large, and boosts the car’s stock 6.2-liter V8 from its normal 426 hp (318 kW) and 624 Nm (460 lb-ft) to 715 hp (533 kW) and 915 Nm (675 lb-ft). This enables the truck to zap from standstill to 60 miles per hour (0-97 km/h) in 4.3 seconds.

In addition to the power boost, the company delivers an extensive body kit and suspension upgrade. The front bumper depicted here costs $18,950, the stainless-steel exhaust system $2,750 and the Brembo brakes another $7,950. The so-called HPE Stage-1 kit includes a suspension lift kit (+6 inches / +152 mm), new wheels and several body kit parts, and is available for $14,950.

Tick all the boxes, and you are looking forward to spending $74,850 on upgrades for your truck, which begins at just $52,090 for the V8 6.2 spec. Hennessey will be producing 100 such kits.

The tuner ships a similar package for the lower V8 5.3 spec of the GMC Sierra, but you won’t be getting much more than 500 hp (373 kW) out of that engine model.

One last experimental upgrade for the V8 6.2 version concerns increasing piston travel and could get it all the way up to 811 hp (605 kW), as long as you are willing to pay extra.
