They had their first accident today (one day after opening). It was a rollover.

Yeah, apparently a couple of cars collided with animals, a very real hazard on Texas highways. At 85 mph even a small armadillo would be lethal.

Hennessey makes some absouletly INSANE machinery. Funny thing is that 1200hp CTS-V is the "medium-hot" salsa you buy from Hennessey, ie its not close to being the looniest thing you can buy from him.

Hell, I was surprised how much damage a coyote did to our car at 70. Never thought of them as big enough to worry about. I can only imagine at 85 what that would have done. And you know most people always try to stretch the speed limit just a bit by going 5-7 over the posted limit. So 90 mph hitting something. All I gotta say is damn.
