Hennessy Venom GT

The Venom GT combines a high-tech, lightweight British chassis with a powerful American V8. This is the latest release from Hennessey, pairs the Lotus Elise with a ZR1-sourced 6.2-liter LS9 V8. That combination is enough deliver a reported 2.4-second 0 to 62 mph and a 262 mph top speed.

The Venom GT comes in 725, 1,000 and 1,200 hp varieties. It weighs less than 2,400 lbs (1,071 kilos) thanks to carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber wheels. Stopping power is delivered via Brembo brakes with six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in rear clamping down on 15-inch carbon ceramic rotors, Hennessey revealed today in a press release.

Only 10 of these cars will be made each year. The company has reported four preorders already. The company to plans make the cars available through dealerships in the Middle East, Europe, Russia, Australia and Asia.

Re: Hennessy Venom GT

Reminds me of a Porsche Carrera GT and probably costs as much or more.

Re: Hennessy Venom GT

That is sweet looking. Only problem is - it is associated with Hennessey

Gotta agree with Bob on this one. That thief will probably take 50% deposits from a bunch of people wanting the cars and then disappear. :eek2:

Absolutely agree with you, it's unfortunate that the individual's unscrupulous business methods somewhat tarnish the vehicle's appeal.

Re: Hennessy Venom GT

Looks like most of them will be sold overseas. Maybe his reputation is not so well known overseas. He builds some fast cars, but I sure wouldn't spend my money with him.

I just read that too.....all the dealerships are overseas. Things that make you go hmmmmmm....... He's a piece of work.....scum.

It is stunning and with performance to back it up.....too bad someone of my build would NEVER be able to fit in the thing!!! 6'-3" and 215 eliminates me from even considering it. I 'climbed' into a friend's Elise that he was bragging about and could not even move!! Way to small for me.
Looks very cool though.

'02 eb Z, gone.....but not forgotten. Onto the '70 RS 'maro, slight rebuild project.

Re: Hennessy Venom GT

If you want to see it in person, come to Houston on the first Sat of next month. I hear from a VERY reliable source that it will make an appearance at the Coffee and Cars at Uptown Park. I can't wait!
