Hennessey Venom GT hits U.K streets for promo video

The Hennessey Venom GT supercar, based on the Lotus Elise, is nearing production and to celebrate someone has been tearing around the U.K to make a video. The clip shows the mid-engined supercar flexing its muscles as the company fine-tunes the car’s handling and performance.

With a light weight and a 725 hp – 1,200 hp engine based on the Corvette ZR1’s LS9 powerplant, the Venom GT will be one of the quickest and angriest vehicles on the road when it finally reaches limited production. Only 10 vehicles per year are planned, but with 0-100 kph speeds as low as 2.4 seconds and a top-speed of 420 kph for the highest-powered version, there’s going to be heavy demand.

Trying to get all the power to the road is a Ricardo six-speed sequential gearbox pushing the rear wheels, with Brembo brakes and 15-inch carbon-ceramic rotors. There is also a fully user-programmable traction control system and active aerodynamics and suspension.
