The team around the tuner Hennessey Performance has just published a new project that will be officially presented at the upcoming SEMA Auto Show. As a basis, a Lotus Elise came into consideration, which was equipped with the already well-known 7.0-liter V8 of the Corvette ZR1 and from last year 725PS to unbelievable 1260PS pretty much everything road legal has driven into the ground what can be described as "fast" on this planet. After the current tuning cure, which the car was allowed to endure again, the 2016 model of the Hennessey Venom GT now comes with an unbelievable 1.451PS and thus once again makes an insane 207PS more.
In figures that means: in 2,4 seconds to 100 km / h, only 2 seconds later 160 km / h. Even more impressive is the fabulous value of 12,8 seconds at an insane 320km / h, the end is ultimately at a theoretical V-Max of 450km / h !!! As for the changes made to the Hennessey Venom GT, we have already learned the first details. As always, we have listed what we know below for you in a summary. But if you discover any further changes that we haven't listed, just use the comment box and let us know!
