Even though the amazing Hennessey Venom GT looks like a badly stretched out Lotus to an uninterested eyes, it is one of the most thrilling cars you can buy today.
Well, you can buy it if you got a very big lump of money burning a hole in your pocket, and if you are lucky enough to squeeze yourself into the list of 10 incredibly important people who have ordered this year’s production!
Mind you, you could get one sooner and easier if you go for a basic 720 hp version. And that’s jolly exciting for sure, but not quite as exciting as the full-fat 1,200 hp edition. It can hit zero to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds and an unofficial top speed of 267 mph. So yes it might not look like it, but the Venom GT is a serious rival for the mighty Bugatti Veyron.
What’s astonishing is that unlike Bugatti which has space-age technology at its disposal, the Venom has been made by a couple of dudes in a workshop and then perfected by a couple of blokes in a shed!
Here’s the third production unit of the Hennessey Venom GT in fiery red, on its way to its lucky owner. Drool at will!
