The Hennessey Venom GT is a Lotus shell powered by a Twin Turbo LS9 Corvette ZR1 engine. That's 1,200 HP in a 2,548-lb carbon fiber body — a combination helping provide a mean-as-hell 0-to-62 MPH time of 2.9 seconds.

Sounds like exactly the thing for a brisk Saturday morning cruise. Builder John Hennessey calls the car "the fulfillment of a dream." It will only cost you $1,000,000 to make his dream your reality.
