    550 HP Hennessey Escalade

    Just saw that Hennesey beefed up the already amazing Escalade. Looking to get my wife one of these bad boys by the end of the year. Opinions, do you think 550hp is too much for a car like this?

    Nothing to really add on the horsepower other than it looks like a BEAST!!! I would love to have one of those ;-)

    My GL63 comes with 575 hp, it's car fast, and NO that's not enough power either

    I like the escalade that beat the GTR. That's more like it. 8 speed and crest emblem or not doesn't matter.

    Yes that is correct, then there is an AMG tune update that can be done at some dealerships, for a price of course, that adds 25 hp but raising the rev limiter, and still under warranty.

    Wow thats really interesting. Didn't know that dealership can do that.

    I am maybe looking into GL550, GL 63, or Porsche Cayenne GTS/Turbo/TurboS when my 2012 GL550 lease is up next year. Taking my sweet time purchasing the 2015 Escalade until all the problems fade.

    Thanks

    I have driven slp supercharged gmt 900 and it was really bad,
    Didn't feel much difference other then supercharger whine compare to my stock escalade.
    I would buy $15k package if it really did made the truck a lot faster but I highly doubt it.

    AMG certified dealer. I know about that. I just didn't know about the tuning part.
