Hennessey VENOM GT [video]
Hennessey Venom GT is powered by 6.2 liter LS9 V8 taken from a Corvette ZR1, but boosted to the whopping 1200HP. The weight of the car is just 1 071 kg, so it has more horsepower than kilograms.
The engine is mated to a Ricardo 6-speed gearbox and the performance is more than satisfying. 0 to 60 mph in 2.2 seconds and the tops speed is officially rated at 421 km/h (262 mph). The price is nice, too - 600 000 USD.
The company will build just 10 units per year.
Enjoy the video, where Jay Leno make a review of the astonishing car.
