A notable absentee from the recently concluded 2012 Goodwood Festival of Speed was Hennessey . The American supercar manufacturer and tuner debuted the incredible Venom GT at the show in 2011, and prior to the conclusion of this year’s event, company founder, John Hennessey was nice enough to post an awesome video capturing one of the Venom’s many sprints up the famous hill climb.
With a GoPro Hero camera mounted to the rear-end of the vehicle, Hennessey managed to capture the car’s incredible exhaust note in all its beauty. If you listen closely, you’ll hear the incredible sounds of the twin-turbochargers spooling up when the throttle is applied.
However, the swan-song of this video comes in the final seconds where the Venom GT shoots some impressive flames after the hillclimb helping to exemplify just how mean this supercar is.
Considering the Venom GT can deliver 1200bhp in top tune, it’s little surprise that the car spits flames as easy as this one. This incredible peak horsepower output is achieved thanks to a Corvette ZR1 sourced V8 engine fitted with two turbochargers. As a result, the Venom GT is said to sprint to 60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and Hennessey quotes a top speed of 275 mph.
