Hennessey releases first teaser photo of Venom GT; debut set for March 30
It’s been long time coming but finally, we have a semblance of proof from Hennessey that the Venom GT is alive and well.
It shouldn’t have even come down to this because the car was expected to make its debut at the Geneva Motor Show. But because there wasn’t enough room for the Venom GT to strut its wares, Hennessey eventually decided to hold off the car’s debut on March 30. That’s a few weeks from now!
As the first production car from a renowned tuning house, the Venom GT is a twin-turbo LS9 V8 engine Lotus-based machine that is poised to drop the jaws of anyone who gets too close to it. The car is available in three set-ups - 725bhp, 1000bhp and 1200bhp – with all of its power converted to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.
The car is expected to reach a top speed of 420km/h (262mph) – you read that right, by the way – with a 0-100kmh sprint time of just – wait for it – 2.2 seconds.
It’s going to take a few more weeks before we see the Hennessey Venom GT in the flesh. But for now, consider this teaser photo of the car shrouded in minimal lighting as the first appetizer before the full entree is served on the 30th of March.
