A Lotus Elise with the engine of a Corvette ZR1 (725 hp/741 lb-ft supercharged 6.9 liter V8). Sounds like a recipe for tire-shredding mayhem, right? Well, you’d be correct if Hennessey didn’t also make it’s new 200 mph 2011 Venom GT available with a twin-turbocharged 1,000 hp/900 lb-ft torque OR an orbit-defying 1,200 hp/1,100 lb-ft torque “version”. Yes, this is Hennessey doing what they (he) does best. Pure madness.
The new 2011 Hennessey Venom GT, of which only 10 will be made, will get you to 60 in less than 3 seconds (if you get the tires to connect), and not only provide you a road legal nuclear missile, but one that would make the Dark Knight and/or Mad Max jealous. The 2,400 lb Venom GT will be equipped with 15″ carbon ceramic rotors up, Michelin PS2 tires, fully-adjustable suspension, and a one-day track training program to teach what we imagine to be a course in not ending your life in a flaming ball of fury.
