‘Official’ may be a little bit of a stretch considering we’ve already seen photos of the car in various spy photos, but nonetheless, Hennessey Performance is using that word to describe the first batch of ‘official’ photos of its highly-anticipated super car, the Venom GT.

In another piece of information that Hennessey has kindly passed along, the American tuning house has announced that only ten Venom GTs will be made each year. So, if you just happen to be one of those that can’t wait to get your paws on one, you’re going to have to act fast because four of the ten that are being made for 2010 have already been scooped up.

As for the rest of us, who will only own a Venom GT in the form of desktop wallpapers, these ‘official’ photos of the Lotus-derived machine is about as close to a God-send as we can get.

We don’t know about you, but we already have ours set up.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Venom GT has already makes it way on Jay Leno’s garage!He jests that the car was more of a pipe dream at first, and explains that he wanted to create a car that made no excuses about having an absurd power-to-weight ratio.

The $900,000 supercar makes its 1,200 horsepower from a Chevrolet 6.2-liter LS9 V8 and weighs under 2,700 pounds. It touts 18 psi of boost, and runs on pump gas from your local station.

Sounds like a very powerful machine is going to be under the hood of this baby. I hope to see it on the streets and even on the circuit or track soon.

Well, with only 10 units to be produced annually, it would most likely only end up in our wallpapers and screensavers.

I agree, specially it’s high resolution. This would be one of the best wall paper to have.
