Hennessey Performance Engineering is no stranger when it comes to turning solid rubber into a fine, vaporized mist. Now, we’re getting an earful of exactly that as the Texas-based tuner’s Goliath 700 Chevy Silverado roasts the meats. You know, for America.
Recently posted to Hennessey’s YouTube page, this video is brief, clocking in at just one minute, 47 seconds. However, it gets right to the point, showing the Goliath 700 Chevy Silverado as it spins its rear tires in a gross display of horsepower and torque, all while the stars and stripes proudly waves above.
Indeed, this thing not only looks the part of a nasty performance pickup, but it sounds the part as well. Making all those good noises is GM’s 6.2L V8 L87 gas engine, which Hennessey has upgraded with a new 2.9L supercharger system, high-flow intake and intercooler, CNC-ported heads, a custom cam, chromoly hardened pushrods, a crankcase ventilation system, and a custom tune.
True to the name, the Goliath 700 package ups output to a stout 700 horsepower at 6,300 rpm, more than enough to turn this Chevy Silverado’s rear tires into big white clouds. This particular model looks like it’s also equipped with the Goliath Off-Road Stage 1 Package, which adds in a new front bumper, front-facing LED lighting, bespoke 20-inch wheels, 35-inch off-road tires, a six-inch lift, and all the requisite badging and graphics.
Suffice to say, seeing this massive pickup truck turn donuts like a sports car while the supercharged V8 spits out thunder from the exhaust is impressive. That’s certainly one way to retire some old rubber…
Where would you take this Goliath 700 Chevy Silverado? How many donuts could you fit in before the rear tires went pop?
