Hennessey Performance Engineering's next excitement source is the new 2010 Ford Taurus on which work has begun. The stock car delivers 365 healthy stallions from the EcoBoost twin turbo engine.
When Hennessey Performance Engineering sets out on a project one thing for certain is that there will be plenty of horses to write home about. Their next big job will be the new 2010 Ford Taurus SHO which has recently just revived the Super High Output (SHO) badge. Ford unveiled the Taurus SHO at the 2009 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. John Hennessey himself owns one of the original Taurus SHOs so passion for the SHO name is certainly not lacking at least on the company founder's part.
As part of the tuning package Hennessey will fit components such as a boost controller, boost gauge, air filter and a different exhaust system. An upgraded suspension system, intercooler and turbo are included. The rest of the information will be available as soon as the car is made available for sale later on in the year.
The standard car packs a 365hp (268kW) twin-turbo V6 EcoBoost engine with peak torque of 350 lb-ft. It was intended to offer not only good power from low down the rev range through to the top but to be relatively thrifty on fuel too.
