After the official unveil of the staggering, ultra-powerful Hennessey Venom GT, the guys at HPE are now showing us their Veyron-spanker in action. With ear-pleasing whizzing sounds, the all-new HPE Venom GT looks like agglutinate to the tarmac. On the short video, HPE is showcasing its aerodynamic prototype ride, which sports a mildly-tweaked LS9 V8 6.2-liters supercharged power unit with 725 horsepower.

After a short test drive on the roads near Silverstone, England, John Hennessey shares…"It is quick, as you would expect. But what shocked me was how docile the car is to drive at any speed. It was just as happy to meander along at 20 mph through English country villages as it was to effortlessly accelerate to 120 mph. The sense of driver confidence it gave me was astounding. Cornering speeds on street tires felt as good or better than some race cars I have driven on full race slicks. The aerodynamic package is truly amazing."
