Hennessey went to Lowe's and bought a six-foot Douglas Fir, strung up some lights, and strapped it down to a suction-cup roof rack for the record run.

Hennessey has done this sort of stunt before: In 2017, it took one of its modified Dodge Challenger Widebody models to 173 mph -- and it had a smaller Christmas tree on its roof.

That said, in the holiday spirit, we're going to give this one to Hennessey. If nothing else, its HPE1000-modified Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk seems like one cool sleigh.
