John Hennessey, who builds the monstrous 1,200-horespower Venom GT, sent us this video of a gamer hooning up one of his cars in Fourza. The track action is awesome, but his explanation for the video is even more interesting.
I can tell you from experience there's no missing the sound of the 1,200-hp twin-turbo V8 Hennessey Venom GT from inside the cockpit, but that's not stopping the Texas company from removing the car's top in pursuit of even more glorious decibels with their 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. Here's a first look.
Remember the playground bully? The kid twice your size who repeated first grade just so he could be larger and stronger? In the automotive world, that bully's name is Bugatti, and I just saw him back down from a fight with something even more menacing.
The Hennessey Venom GT's returning home to its summer home in England, this time with the fourth production version in bright yellow set for its track debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Behold, the "B-Killer." Update!
Pilots who fly above Mach 1 sometimes speak of a supersonic moment that causes the instruments, ever-so-briefly, to blur. Charging down a track in the 1,200-hp Henessey Venom GT there's a moment when my eyes pull the same trick. This isn't a car, man, this is the best way to die.
It's not uncommon to see high-power vehicles throw a little flame out the rear while dyno testing. When the 1,200-hp Hennessey Venom GT gets on the dyno, it's not uncommon to see an afterburner.
The Hennessey Venom GT made a surprise appearance at the famous weekly Cars & Coffee in Irvine, CA this morning. Check out the first pictures of the car in the 'merican wild.
The insane $1 million Hennessey Venom GT's managed to sneak into Texas without setting off any USGS seismic sensors. The Lotus-bodied, 1,200-hp V8-powered Venom GT will debut at SEMA next week, where it will embarrass outrageously-painted Hyundai Tiburons.
The first production Elise-bodied, Corvette ZR1-powered Hennessey Venom GT adds a layer of shiny paint, but with 1,200 hp and a 2,548-pound curb weight the first customer will surely strip it back down to its carbon fiber body.
The Hennessey Venom GT is no joke. ZR1 Engine. Up to 1,200 HP. Less than 2,400 Pounds. Better power-to-weight than a Bugatti Veyron. Lotus-derived chassis. $600K pricetag. It's so batshit crazy the sales price includes an "orientation" session.
The Hennessey Venom GT, based on the diminutive Lotus Elise, will deliver up to 1200 HP, once it progresses beyond the teaser image stage ahead of the car's full debut March 30th. Over-dramatically scored video below:
The seductively mad Hennessey Venom GT was spotted by a tipster being loaded onto a carrier headed to an unknown location. What we do know is it isn't headed to Geneva as others have reported.
The Javits Center, home of the New York Auto Show, isn't exactly a well laid-out place (take that I.M Pei). As opposed to one or two large halls, the Javits has a lot of smaller spaces where the non-major or custom automakers are forced to put their displays. This explains why there was a Hennessey Venom 700 NM Viper…
Somehow we think maybe the 2009 Corvette ZR1 pre-Detroit Auto Show embargo will be lifting sometime very soon. It's the only explanation we can come up with for why Nissan felt compelled to have an embargo on the 2009 GTR's Z06-beating Edmunds Inside Line 0-60 test lift late last night. OK, maybe that was just a freak…
We can't believe we spaced on this, seeing as Venom frontman Cronos has been known to show up at Spinelli's old LasagnaFarm project from time to time. But if you needed further proof about the supremacy of the Manta, please note that Venom, who likely were attempting to be the scariest band in the world, manned their…
