You are probably familiar with Hennessey Performance’s amazing supercar the Venom GT already, but so far we’ve only got to see the 720 hp version.

Here’s a few flicks of the top of the range 1200 hp edition. I know they are not different designwise, but just because you know it’s 1200 hp car it looks better to you, doesn’t it?!

This is also the very first production unit of the Venom sporting chassis number 01. It was ordered by a Middle Eastern guy and that explains why  it’s the full-fat model!

The Venom GT is based on the Lotus Elise. It looks like the Elise and uses the same sort of chassis ans suspension as well. But it has longer length and track to cope with that volcano under the hood.

And this good-looking engine is where the umpf is coming from. It’s a LS9 GM V8 boosted with a couple turbochargers. You can have it with 720, 1000, or 1200 hp.
