I've heard that Hennessey is better now and on a better course, but what has been seen cannot be unseen.
Modified cars rarely if ever are worth more than a stock counterpart. Only the odd car like a Supra or TT Gallardo are exceptions to this rule.

It is hard to forget the past yes, but put things into perspective. Look at Ford. A lot of people are still stuck with the stigma that Ford makes crap cars and they are junk.

Ford is making AMAZING cars right now. Great quality and engineering compared to even 5 years ago. Before someone sihts on this point, yes some cars have had problems, but what manufacturer doesn't. So again, put things into perspective.

You and everyone else on this forum aren't in the position to make that assumption. If I had $1m to spend on a car, I would buy a Hennessey in a heart beat, but that is me. I don't have $1m either, so I do not know what my car purchasing mind would be into.

What rich people want when shopping for a car like this is Exclusivity/Fast/Price in that order.

We cannot say whether the car is worth it or not because we cannot afford it, or have ever, or will ever, have a chance to drive/ride in one.
