Looks like Hennessey Performance Engineering — the tuners of all things Mopar and SRT — are not going to sit back and kick up their heels with their twin-turboed Viper — the Venom 1000 SRT. No, they've just revealed their suspected new concept super car, the Venom GT — and yes, it's mid-engined. The Steve Everitt-penned light wight chassis Venom GT will incorporate Hennessey's massive Venom 1000 Twin Turbo Viper V10 powerplant and all thousand of it's snake-spookin' horses and still tip the scales at just under 2,700 lbs. That gives the GT an astonishing 2.7 lbs per horse — and a purported 0 to 62 mph time of less than 2.5 sec. Even more important however would be the 0 to 186 mph time — which Hennessey's claiming is a quick-as-a-cobra-strike 14 seconds. But company CEO John Hennessey's claiming this car isn't a "Veyron slayer" — oh, no — he already lays claim to that title with his Venom 1000 Twin Turbo SRT. No, according to Hennessey, this isn't a car for a Veyron driver — no, it's much more of an "engaging" drive than the Bugatti uber-car because of the 1500 lb weight differential. We'd have to agree — this car looks insane. We'll take two please, one for us and one for our tame race driver. Full press release after the jump.
