The fictional character Dr. Seuss has done it again because The Grinch has stolen the Christmas tree once again. The green creature seems to switch cars year after year and keeps going faster and faster, managing to beat last year’s 183 mph speed in the Audi RS6 Avant. His breakout car is a Shelby Mustang GT500 appropriately painted in Eruption Green. The tuned car comes with a 1000 Hennessey Venom package for the annual Christmas Tree Run.

After stealing a tree from a van at the Continental Tires Proving Grounds in Texas, The Grinch slams it against the roof of a car and escapes. However, Spencer Geswein acted quickly and eventually got his car back. He jumped behind the wheel of the tuner’s second strongest build based on the Mustang Shelby GT500.

Aftermarket specialists also have the Venom 1200 packaged with (yes, you guessed it) 1200 horsepower. A milestone kit tailored to the Mustang Shelby GT500 also increases torque from 850 lb-ft (1,156 Nm) to 902 lb-ft (1,227 Nm) from the supercharged 5.2-liter V8.

The amped-up ‘Stang uses a colossal 1,000 horsepower to beat last year’s super wagon by reaching 192 mph (nearly 310 km/h). In recent years, we’ve seen the Hennessey Dodge Challenger Hellcat Widebody reach 174 mph (280 km/h), surpassed by the Porsche 911 Turbo S (175 mph or 282 km/h) and the Jeep Trackhawk (181 mph or 291 km/h). . h).

With the Venom F5, Hennessey should be able to break the 200 mph barrier next year, provided the tuner decides to use the hypercar for the 2023 Christmas Tree Run.
