Hennessey Venom GT

After several spy shots and teasers, the Venom GT is finally here. As a reminder, the Venom GT from Hennessey performance is a supercar based on the Lotus Exige and powered by a supercharged Corvette V8. Unfortunately, no performance figures have been released. But with 725 Hp and 1,071 Kg, expect it to hit 100 Km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds...

Body work
The superlight curb weight of 1,071 Kg has been achieved thanks to a carbon fiber bodywork as well as carbon fiber wheels. This is also thanks to a high tech lightweight chassis in the tradition of Lotus.

Under the big Lotus Exige skin there's a central mounted beautiful piece of engineering: the supercharged 6.2L LS9 V8 from the Corvette ZR1 which now delivers 725 Hp. Wise choice i say. Hennessey Performance is also planning 1,000 hp and 1,200 hp versions. This makes the Venom GT a serious contender to being the fastest production car in the world.

Other features include an active aerodynamic system with an ajustable rear wing depending on the use of the car (road or track). It's also equipped with an ajustable suspension system. A proper race car for the road.
