American supercar Hennessey Venom GT

In March 2010, the American Hennessey Performance company Engineering introduced Venom GT hypercar, built on a modified platform of the sports car Lotus Elise/Exige and combines high-tech chassis and British American power engine V8. This Hennessey Venom GT retained and the body of the original model, which, however, had to lengthen and widen. Overall length hypercar is 4655 mm (size of the wheelbase – 2800), width – 1960, height – 747, and the weight is 1244 kg. Initially, the Hennessey Venom GT installed 6.2-liter V8 LS9 engine from the Corvette ZR1 supercar, which in standard version produces 735 hp But the tuners managed to bring it out to 1200 “horses” (though offered and 1,000-strong version). His power increased to 1244 hp, and peak torque reached the level of 1566 Nm. Thrust is transmitted to the rear axle via a six-speed manual gearbox Ricardo. In January 2013 Hennessey Venom GT to hit the Guinness Book of Records, accelerating from 0 to 300 km/h in 13.63 seconds. Before this record belonged to the Swedish Koenigsegg Agera R hypercar, which has done the same exercise for 14.53 seconds. A February 9, 2013 on the runway California Air Force Base US car accelerated to 427.6 km/h, becoming, according to John Hennessey, the fastest production car in the world available for purchase. Although the fastest production car in the world is Bugatti Veyron SuperSport with a maximum speed of 431 km/h, the representatives of American companies retort that the buyers sell Bugatti cars with speed limiter to 415 km/h, and on the Venom GT is not any constraints. In total the company plans to build only 29 hypercar Hennessey Venom GT, the price of each of which is equal to 1 200 000 dollars. For the previous version from 1000-horsepower engine we asked exactly two times less – $ 600 000, and the circulation was 10 cars. Even more exclusive is the 1200-strong public option Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, which made only five of them.
