3 World’s Quickest Editions previously offered
Hennessey Efficiency is building an very restricted run of World’s Quickest Edition Venom GTs to celebrate the company’s top pace run of 270.4 mph set at NASA’s Kennedy Area Center in February. It holds the unofficial record for quickest series-created road automobile and the official record for standing-commence acceleration. The Venom GT hit 186 mph in 13.63 seconds.
“The Venom GT is America’s supercar, and it broke 270 mph on the exact same runway the place the Space Shuttle landed at the Kennedy Space Center,” stated company founder John Hennessey. “We desired to supply a special paint scheme that would integrate the colors of the American flag. Therefore, our specific livery bundle consists of a entire body in white with red-and-blue stripes.”
Hennessey launched a video of the higher-pace record run earlier this 12 months in February, we have added it below.
The heart of the Venom GT is a 7.-liter twin-turbocharged V8 producing an astounding 1,244 hp, with only 2,743 lbs to carry all around. That’s about double the electrical power-to-weight ratio of the Corvette Z06.
The ratio is made achievable by in depth use of light-weight aluminum, carbon-fiber bodywork and carbon-ceramic brakes.
Only 3 are getting built, however, and they have previously sold for $ 1.25 million each. But the Venom GT Hardtop ($ one.one million) and Spyder ($ 1.2 million) are even now offered. Hennessey says to permit 6 months for delivery.
