Hennessey Performance will gladly park one of their new 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyders in your garage, but you need a few things first if you want to get one of the last three that remain. First you need to ask your spouse if you can buy one. Second you need to make room in the garage for the car, because it not a good idea to leave it in the driveway. Third call your insurance company for a quote and you may want to be sitting when you call. Last and most important you will need an extra 1.1 million dollars to spare.
So let’s assume your 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder is sitting pretty in the middle of your garage and you still have a spouse with their arm wrapped around your shoulder, in happiness and joy with the new car you just bought them.
So what exactly do you have, well you own maybe the fastest car on the planet. The 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder is powered by a Chevrolet sourced 6.2 liter twin turbo V/8 that produces 1,200 horsepower at 6,500 rpm. The performance numbers fall in at 0-60 in 2.7 seconds and has reached a top speed of 275 mph. At that speed you may reach the office before you left the house. The power is put to the earth via a 6 speed Ricardo manual transmission.
If you recognize the shape of the 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder and think it looks like a Lotus Elise, you would be right. Hennessey Performance starts the Venom build after a complete tear down of the base model Elise with everything being replaced from the top to the bottom. As a side note Steven Tyler from Aerosmith has taken possession of the first Venom GT spyder to roll out the door.
