The brakes are Brembo with six piston calipers at the front and four piston on the rear clamping onto 15 inch carbon ceramic rotors.

Transmission is via a Ricardo six speed box to the rear wheels. Power is managed by a programmable traction control system. An active aero system with adjustable rear wing will deploy under varying conditions. An adjustable suspension ststem allows ride height adjustment. The car uses the huge Michelin PS2 tyres. Hennessey will be building the power plant at their facility in Texas and air freighted to Silverstone for assembly, customers are to be given a one day orientation and instruction at a track in either the USA or UK
