Hennessey has officially announced that its all-new mid-engine super sports car Venom GT will celebrate its US debut at the upcoming 2010 SEMA Show in Las Vegas at 2nd of November. The ultra high-performance monster sports a Hennessey-tuned 6.2L V-8 twin-turbo power unit that produces the head-turning 1,200 horsepower and 1,155 lb-ft of peak torque.
Exclusively engineered to provide exceptional power-to-weight ratio - 2.24 lbs/bhp, the HPE Venom GT boasts a special body made of mixture between carbon fiber, aluminum and titanium, which has an impressive curb weight of just 2,685 pounds.
John Hennessey, HPE founder and president shared: "We are very excited to have the opportunity to show our Venom GT in the Mobil 1 display at this year's SEMA show. We first announced our interest in developing an ultra lightweight, ultra powerful sports car – the Venom GT concept – nearly three years ago during SEMA."
Only ten Hennessey Venom GTs will be produced per year, immediately placing the ride as one of the most exclusive supercars currently built. The breath-taking vehicle will be offered with short list of options, including a choice of left- or right-hand drive.
