Rumored: Hennessey Venom GT Specs

1 post in this topic

Leftlane has obtained brand new pictures of the previously unseen Hennessey Venom GT. Sketches of Hennessey Performance Engineering’s Venom GT supercar have been floating around the Web since late 2007, but now we have live photos of the radical two-door before its planned first appearance at the upcoming 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

What you are looking at are photos of the upcoming Venom GT being shown to the public for the first time.

The Venom GT shown in these pictures is a little bit different from the Venom GT previously described. Since its initial press release, the Venom GT has managed to shed 300 pounds, now tipping the scales at a svelte 2,400 lbs.

The Venom GT’s powertrain has also seen a change, and is probably the reason for the car’s lighter curb weight. Originally slated to use a twin-turbo version of the Dodge Viper’s 8.4L V10 – rated at 1,000 horsepower – the production Venom GT will use a “Hennessey V8.” Although details on the powertrain have not been implicitly given, some sources say the Venom will offer three trim levels of the ZR1-sourced 6.2-liter LS9 V8 – ranging from 750 hp all the way to 1,200 hp for the track.

The Venom GT will also feature a six-speed manual gearbox, and the supercar will rely on 14-inch carbon rotors, paired with six-piston calipers up front, and four-piston calipers out back.

Hennessey expects the Venom GT to make the sprint to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds on to its way to its top speed of 272 mph.

Sounds pretty damn sweet if you ask me. I'm really excited to see if they really are using an LS9 and see what the specs and stats are on this car...
