Hennessey Venom GT2 with 1,500 horsepower will be faster?


Hennessey Performance shop will be introducing the new Venom GT2 to satisfy the need for speed. We’ve seen the Venom GT with 1,200 hp from last year, and this iteration will sure make you “pop-a-wheelie” when you press the pedal to the metal.

The Hennessey Venom GT2 will be powered by a 7.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine producing  1,500 horsepower, which can only attain when running E85 gasoline. As impressive as it may sound, we aren’t sure if the rear wheels can handle that much power.

In addition to the horsepower gain, the Hennessey Venom GT2 also comes with an optional seven-speed paddle-shifter transmission, a double-bubble roof, and aerodynamic improvements.

The Hennessey Venom GT2 will be available in 2014, and it have a sticker price of $1.25 million.  If you want the optional paddle-shifter transmission, it will cost you another $165,000 . Now that is an outrageous price for an outrageous horsepower supercar.
