 Hennessey (Performance Engineering) is the name of a car preparer founded in 1991 by John Hennessey and well known car enthusiasts to have reworked many models of Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren, Dodge, Audi, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota, Nissan and Lexus.
But the model is probably the most wanted car enthusiasts is their Hennessey Venom GT, one of the sports car among the most powerful in the world. Based on the chassis and body of the little Lotus Exige (which was extended to 4.66 m) and a carbon fiber body (except the roof and doors), she embarks on a V8 Biturbo Corvette ZR1 (6162 cm3) boosted to reach 1244 hp and 1566 Nm of torque.
10 copies produced since 2010, the Hennessey Venom GT is sold between 460.900 Euro (600,000$) and 652.950Euro ($ 850,000) depending on configurations. But what makes us shudder is its acceleration ...
