    Oh. My. Gawwd!!!

    Hennessey Venom GT | Hennessey Performance

    SOMETIMES LESS EQUALS MORE
    In the case of the Venom GT, less weight means more performance. The Venom GT will have a production curb weight of less than 2,400 lbs (1,071 kilos) aided by its lightweight carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber wheels. Stopping power is delivered via Brembo brakes with 6-piston calipers up front and 4-piston calipers in rear clamping down on 15-inch carbon ceramic rotors.

    SOMETIMES MORE EQUALS MORE
    The Venom GT’s base power plant is the supercharged 6.2 liter LS9 V8 (the same as in the Corvette ZR1) tweaked by Hennessey to 725 bhp. The company will also be offering 1000 bhp and 1200 bhp twin turbo V8 engine variants. The mid-engine V8 will transmit its power to the rear tires via a Ricardo 6-speed gearbox.


    Better not arm it, it would probably run into it's own rounds!
    “The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.”

    Don't need to drive it, or fill it with gas. Just park it in the driveway and stare at it all day long.

    That is a pretty car. I would love to have it if it had a nice lotus motor in it or maybe a turbo boxer motor... I would end up getting myself killed with a 1200 HP motor!
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    Is that a high-fuel capacity vehicle? Shouldn't there be a 10-day waiting period followed by a background check and drivers testing? I think they should be regulated insofar that no one needs to drive that fast....[/sarc]
