Where’s the best place to try and warm up the engine of a high-powered sportscar? Why, the countryside, of course!
Not a lot of car, not a lot of cops, and a lot of open pavement waiting at your disposal. Sounds like a good day to let loose Hennessey’s Venom GT.
In this video released by Hennessey Performance Engineering, we have yet again the Lotus Elise-based Venom GT doing some test runs, this time in a small town near the Silverstone race track in the UK.
Watching - and listening - to the video harks us back to the time when sports cars sounded this piercingly sharp. As the driver pushes the pedal to the ground, you can hear this sharp shriek that on any other thing would sound deplorably horrible; but on a sportscar, it’s music to our ears.
And the best part is, the model used in this video is just the
base model of the Venom GT. Imagine what it would be like to have 1,200 horsepower underneath that hood.
