It's been two long years since John Hennessey announced plans to build his very own supercar, and we were beginning to wonder if it was ever going to happen. Apparently, Hennessey's plans are still a go as the Texas tuner just announced through its newsletter that the Venom GT will make its official public debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Since the initial press release, Hennessey has made a few changes to the car's proposed specs. Listed curb weight has dropped from 2700 to 2400 lbs and the engine is now a "Hennessey V8" rather than a twin-turbo Viper V10. Power rating is "up to 1,200 bhp" rather than the initially stated 1,000 and top speed has been listed as 272 mph. No matter what the final specifications, it sounds like the Venom GT will be sure to impress.

I want to know everything about this.

AWD?

Engine size?

Number of turbos?

Total boost hitting the engine?

Manual or auto/paddle shift?

Handling?

Price, and could I afford it in 100 years?

Some of the bodywork reminds me of a Lotus Elise/Exige. As a matter of fact, the more I study the sketch, the more I'm lead to believe it's actually based on the Elise. Not a bad thing, Hennessey makes the second American manufacturer to use the Elise as a base for its products. Can we have a little more originality here?
