Lotus Elise + Corvette ZR1 = Hennessey Venom GT

Reading time approx. <1 Minute

Take an ultra-light Lotus Elise chassis and pair it with the engine from the Corvette ZR1 and then of course tune it. The result of all this is the Hennessey Venom GT which blows with 725PS to attack everyone who drives in front of him. So the successor to the P51 Mustang, which was powered by a British Rolls-Royce Merlin engine 50 years ago, is the Venom?

That's how you can see it. However, the current mating promises significantly more fire and quite different ratios of strength and weight. The following changes have to happen so that a Venom GT comes out of it:

  • Basis: Lotus Elise
  • Stretch body
  • Install V8 longitudinally
  • "Chop" height
  • Exercise 1.071 kilograms
  • LS9 engine
  • two twin turbochargers should + HPE configuration
  • 1.000 PS are possible
  • manual six-speed gearbox from Ricardo
  • Brembo racing brakes (front six pistons, rear four)
  • 15 inch large ceramic disc brakes
  • Michelin PS2 tires
