venomGt2 Hennessey GT to Debut at the SEMA Show

The SEMA show begins next week and one of the most interesting cars there will be the Hennessey Venom GT, which the company announced will be make its debut on November 2. If you’ll recall, the Hennessey GT is the Frankenstein of supercars: 1,200-horsepower worth of twin-turbocharged 6.2-liter V8 LS9 power shoved into the middle of a Lotus Evora chassis. Combining the tiny, light chassis with carbon fiber, aluminum and titanium design, Hennessey kept weight down to 2,685 lbs., delivering a staggering 2.24 lbs per hp figure.

Hennessey didn’t release any performance figures with its announcement today, but past figures put the Venom GT at 62 mph in 2.4 seconds and projected a top speed at 262 + mph. Only 10 will be built annually. [via SF Gate]
