It wasnt nearly as long as we had hoped, but this Hennessey produced video of the Venom GT performing a dyno test is about as ear-splittingly joyous as a morning wake ’er-upper can get.

If you’ve just rolled out of your bed, forget coffee. Just plug in your head phones, crank up the volume and click that sideways triangle button. Morning joltness has never sounded more glorious.

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

This Lotus Elise-based beast which is powered by a GM LS9 V8 with 725 hp meets the dyno in this video, and puts out 633 hp at the wheels.

It’s not a music. It’s sounded like a roaring dinosaur under the bonnet of the hennessey.

According to the Hennessey’s results, the base Venom GT will make 633-hp rear-wheel-horsepower and 641 lb-ft of rear-wheel-torque. Well, I can’t wait to see the 1,000-hp and the 1,200-hp twin-turbo V8 go under dyno testing.

What a sound! Impressive engine noise. It’s like a music to my ears.
