Did you at any point consider what amount of funan extended Lotus Elise stage might be whether you shoehorned in a twin-turbo Chevy Ls V-8 motor? Tuner professional John Hennessey pondered literally the same thing, and consequently the Hennessey Venom Gt was conceived.
As the auto heads into its third year of generation, Hennessey is taking a gander at growing the extent with much more skilled models. That is an incredible difficult request, recognizing the Venom Gt recently transforms up to 1244 torque, which compares to 1 drive for each kilogram (2.2 pounds) of mass.
Be that as it may, if anybody can do it, its John Hennessey and his group at Hennessey Performance. Pictured above is a sneak peak of his new 2014 Hennessey Venom Gt2, which is on track for an introduction late one year from now.
As the “customary” Venom Gt, the new Venom Gt2 will be controlled by a Chevy-sourced 7.0-liter V-8 fitted with a couple of turbochargers and a string of different mods. Last yield will be in abundance of 1,500 torque, all of which will be diverted to the back wheels by means of a six-speed manual transmission or discretionary seven-speed, oar moved programmed.
Assuming that you’re keeping score at home, that is presently superior to one torque for every kilogram of weight, the mystery number behind the Venom Gt and Koenigsegg’s approaching One:1 supercar. While new execution numbers haven’t been discharged, we’d wagered the Venom Gt2 will best the Venom Gt’s 0-60 mph time of 2.5 seconds and guaranteed top speed of 262 mph.
It might as well likewise crush the execution of the Bugatti Veyron since the present Venom Gt can recently raced to 200 mph shut 10 seconds quicker than the Bug, obliging only 15.3 seconds for the accomplishment. Obviously, Bugatti is accepted to be finalizing a 1,600-pull model of its own.
Taking a gander at these official renderings of the Venom Gt2, its difficult to miss the auto’s twofold air pocket top, which expands headroom for taller drivers. Entryways now swing upwards, because of dihedral pivots made famous by the Lamborghini Countach.
Aside from the progressions to the auto’s roofline and headlights, the Venom Gt2 will appear to be identical as the consistent Venom Gt on which its based. That is a great thing, since the shape has been refined in a wind tunnel, and its animated back wing guarantees the essential downforce at speed.
Hennessey is as of now building its tenth Venom Gt, which goes to show that the cars are indeed a success among buyers who can afford such lofty levels of performance.
If you’re interested, the starting price on the 2014 Hennessey Venom GT2 will be $1.25 million.
