Hennessey Venom GT news - - 2010

What you can (barely) see above is the
upcoming Hennessey Venom GT - a Lotus Elise-based supercar with 1,200bhp.

Yes, 1,200bhp. Time for some medication…

US tuner Hennessey Performance reckons its
newest supercar will be available with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing
enough power to either a) make Volkswagen engineers cry/laugh/spontaneously
vomit, or b) send you into the nearest tree. Backwards. And on fire.

Hennessey thinks this ungodly power will
make the Venom GT crack the 0-62mph dash in just 2.4 seconds and hit a top
speed of 262mph.

Just in case you’re thinking, ‘Hennessey
has been out window-licking again’, it has fitted 15-inch carbon brakes to haul
its featherweight one-tonne body to a stop.

The mad Venom GT will be fully revealed at
the end of the month, and is being planned for a debut at the 2010 Goodwood
Festival of Speed. Bugatti Veyron engineers are reportedly not bothered.
