A few days ago, Hennessey
announced that its Venom GT
supercar scored another impressive record by accelerating to 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 13.63 seconds
. Today, the tuner has unveiled the video as a statement for their previous announcement.
After all, this result shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone considering the impressive specifications of the Venom GT. It is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V-8 engine, same used in the Corvette ZR1 that delivers up to 1,200 horsepower, depending on the trim level. With a curb weight of 2,685 pounds, the 1,200-horsepower Venom GT will hit a top speed of 275 mph and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds. As expected, such an impressive performance will set you back a nice sum — $950,000.
The test was made at Ellington Airport in Houston, Texas, USA on January 10, 2013.
