The owner of the famous tuning studio Hennessey Performance Engineering posted a video in which he tied a Christmas tree to the roof of his wife’s Audi RS6 Avant and rolled the tree along the runway of the former airfield. In an unusual race, the engineer decided to break the speed record with a Christmas tree on the roof, owned by the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. 800 horsepower under the hood allowed the charged station wagon to surpass that of an SUV.
A couple of years ago, a similar experiment was carried out using a 1000-horsepower Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Then an SUV with a Christmas tree on the roof was dispersed to 291 kilometers per hour. Some time ago, John Hennessy decided to repeat the race, tying a Christmas tree to the roof of his 750-horsepower Porsche 911 Turbo S. Then the founder of the tuning studio managed to accelerate to 282 kilometers per hour. Unhappy with the result, the specialist decided to try again.
As a carrier, the man used his wife’s Audi RS6 Avant, which powers a four-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 800 horsepower. Thanks to him, the “charged” station wagon is capable of accelerating to 330 kilometers per hour. The tree tied to the roof still affected the speed of the car, but it did not prevent to set a new record: the Christmas tree was rolled at a speed of 295 kilometers per hour.
