Hennessey Performance unveils the Ford Taurus SHO MaxBoost 445

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 1, 2013

Hennessey has just the thing for you if you have the need for speed but are on a limited budget. Hennessey is now offering more options for you aside from the Vipers, CTS-Vs and Raptors, and the Venom GT. Hennessey has given additional power to the Ford Taurus SHO. Not a lot can be done about the weight, except for a jettisoning of the back seat much like Car Craft, some door panels and other “unnecessary” ballast.

However, turbocharged engines can be easily tuned so Hennessey worked on the Ford Taurus SHO and gave it a boost from 365 to 445, while its torque rose from 350 to 405 in its MaxBoost 445 transformation. As a result, its performance improved from good to excellent, placing the MaxBoost Taurus in the same level as the contemporary BMW 550i.

It’s also faster than iconic models like the 1991 Porsche 911 Turbo, 1990 Lamborghini Diablo, and the 1996 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. Hennessey has released a video that shows off its previous work done on a Lincoln MKS.

So if you want a MaxBoost package, there are several packages available for the Lincoln MKT, MKS, and the Ford Flex and Explorer as the transverse 3.5 EcoBoost is now available. The MaxBoost 445 package costs $4495. But for that price, the driver feels the excitement of getting 80 hp and 55 lb-ft of torque power from the vehicle.
