Hennessey unveils Goliath bakkie!

October 1, 2018

It's a Chevy with enough wheels and power to make America great again!

 

Ah yes. Donald Trump's land of the free. It's called America and it does things. Like try be great again by building bakkies bigger than elephants and more powerful than any rational human being would ever need.

 

And, make no mistake about it. South Africa loves every last bakkie they produce, including this one, because we're a bakkie-loving mad nation and the bigger the bakkie, the bigger our, um...smile?

 

 

Yes, we smile about bakkies as much as Trump tweets about crap and so with sincere respect we send our humblest shout out to John Hennessey - the coolest American in the world who understands three things in life. Cars needs to be faster. Bakkies need to bigger. And 4 wheels are sometimes just never enough. 

 

That's why he's taken this 4-wheeled Chevrolet Silverado Trail Boss Z71 and sommer gooi'd on another two wheels to handle the ridiculous 2.9-litre V8 and its colossal 525kW and 915Nm of torque. It all means that it gets to 100km/h “in the mid-four second range.” 

 

Of course, that's just the starting version because if you would like it (and trust us, you would if you're buying this in the first place) he'll take that petty little motor and beef it up even further to 808kW for gees. 

 

Thanks Johno.

 

Then finally, to make it all the more legit, he does this. He offers it with a 3 year and 60 000km guarantee.

 

Well. Isn't that just the sweetest thing?
