Who said the horsepower wars are over? Sure, in the “average Joe’s” sector there is much more appeal for a car that produces big MPG and not so much BHP. However, at the sharp end, located in supercar country, things are still pretty pointy when it comes to big numbers. The Hennessey Venom GT was quite a machine but its successor is set to one-up its forefather in just about every way.
This is the Hennessey Venom GT2 and let’s not mess about here, it produces 1,500BHP! The car is completely street legal just like the original Venom but unlike the aforementioned car it puts out an extra 300BHP. Keeping the 7.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 in check are some revised aerodynamics, including that double-bubble roof, and transmissions. A $165,000 optional extra is a new 7 speed paddle shift gearbox, a long conversation with the bank manager is standard. The Hennessey Venom GT2 will set prospective customers back $1.25 Million without the fancy gearbox.
Official performance figures have yet to be released.
