So, did anyone else hear about the Hennessy Venom GT reaching 270 MPH? what are your thoughts? i think its crazy how fast these stock cars are becoming.. thats pure insanity for a "consumer" car... not to mention the price tag...Production is limited to just 10 vehicles per year. The 750 hp Hennessey Venom GT price starts at 600,000 USD while the 1,200 hp version starts at 1,000,000 USD. If you want the car in Europe, the Hennessey Venom GT price goes up by just under 25,000 USD. As of February 28, 2014, 11 Venom GTs have been manufactured. Hennessey have announced that they only intend to build a total of 29 of these cars.

here some of the specs
The Venom GT is powered by twin turbocharged 7.0L [427ci] V8 aluminum engine featuring Ball Bearing Turbocharging system. The engine produces 1,244 bhp (928 kW; 1,261 PS) of power at 6,600 rpm and 1,155 lb·ft (1,566 N·m) of torque at 4,400 rpm. Engine power output is adjustable by three settings: 800 bhp (597 kW; 811 PS), 1,000 bhp (746 kW; 1,014 PS) and 1,244 bhp (928 kW; 1,261 PS). The engine revs to 7,200 rpm.

The mid-engine V8 is mated to the rear wheels with a Ricardo 6-speed manual transmission. Hennessey claims that the car can achieve a top speed of 278 miles per hour (447 km/h), although this has never been tested.

A programmable traction control system will manage power output. Computational fluid dynamics tested bodywork and downforce also help keep the Venom GT stable. Under varying conditions on both the road and racetrack, an active aero system with adjustable rear wing will deploy. An adjustable suspension system will allow ride height adjustments (by 2.4 inches) according to speed and driving conditions. Michelin PS2 tires will also help put power to the ground.

The Venom GT uses a highly modified Lotus Exige chassis. The manufacturer, Hennessey Performance Engineering, claims the modified chassis utilizes components from the Lotus Exige, including but not limited to the roof, doors, side glass, windscreen, dashboard, cockpit, floorpan, HVAC system, wiper and head lamps. Hennessey Performance and the Venom GT are not associated with Lotus Cars. For road use, the car is registered as a Lotus Exige (modified) and is not in fact a series production car.

The Venom GT has a production curb weight of 2,743 pounds (1,244 kg) aided by its lightweight carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber wheels. The brakes use Brembo 6-piston calipers in the front and 4-piston calipers in the rear. The rotors are 15 inches (380 mm) carbon ceramic units provided by Surface Transforms.

You won't see north of 200 in a dmax. That car is pure engineering genius. Really, it's nothing but a status symbol for the really rich. Other than a race track, it's just a fast car on the street.

I'd rather drive my Dmax also, but it's not a race car.

LSX ftw! Lots of engineering that goes into it. Hennessy is got to be one of the most famous power making company's out there.

IDI's sound amazing, and are bulletproof, but gutless.. theres just nothing there. our brush truck at the FD is a ford IDI, to back it up the apron into the bay, its gotta be almost half throttle before it moves..
