The US-based tuner has just put up for sale its drag strip in Sealy, Texas, which covers 55 acres and comes fully packed.
Hennessey Performance has been busy lately with celebrating its 25th anniversary by breaking some speed records. Just a couple of weeks back, the American tuning house revealed that its Venom GT Spyder has become the world’s fastest open top car by achieving a top speed of 265.6 miles per hour, thus beating the previous record holder, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Vitesse. However, the company also has other plans in mind, such as boosting its annual production from 400 units to more than 1,000, and apparently is looking to raise some cash to hit the desired goals.
Hennessey has decided to let go of its Lonestar Motorsports park drag strip, located next to their performance development facility in Sealy, Texas. The asking price? Only 2.7 million dollars for the 55-acre property that includes an IHRA sanctioned 1/4-mile drag strip, enclosed and air conditioned stands, grand stands with seating for 800, staging lanes, control tower, lights, timing equipment and a fuel barn.
But if the land is too small for the prospective buyers, an additional 70 acres are also available at an additional cost to transform the facility into a road race course. “This is purely a smart real-estate move,” John Hennessey, founder of Hennessey Performance, told Automobile. “If it sells for what we ask, great. If no one buys it, we might end up just keeping it.”
