The Texas tuner announced that the Venom GT now packs 1,451 HP, up 207 HP (a whole GTI's worth, basically) over the old car. It can now run on E85 FlexFuel, which allows boost on the twin-turbo 7.0-liter engine to get cranked up from 19 psi to 26 psi. Hennessey projects the new car will do zero to 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, zero to 200 mph in 12.8 seconds, and should hit a top speed of more than 280 mph. The new car will be on display at SEMA with several other Hennessey models.

The car is incredible. Although I'm not a fan of Hennessey cars that much.

Let's not lie to ourselves. That's not really a Lotus. Lol

i love the car and admire all its accomplishments but it enrages me that they call it a production car and that it initially took the Veyrons record. The car is registered and titled as a lotus, it was never crash tested in its current state, it has no air bags, and has no dealers except him. The car is a well thought out kit car and thats it. NO WAY is this a "production car". Can ams decide its a oem now and call omega a "production car"??

The other thing thats way out of line on this car is the price,
donor lotus 50k
ls motor/turbo/supporting mods 75k
suspension goodies/ brakes 30k
stretching the car ill give 100k'

total=255,000
his price 1,000,000 +
Now i think i was extremely generous with some off those cost especially the 100k to stretch the car, keep in mind the cost of stock and supplies is tremendous for most companies, in this case he builds to order so he literally doesn't have to stock anything much

Well, let's not forget how cheap an LS motor is... he only needs to sell one and he is good for a few years. I'm willing to bet he pockets a sold 800k
