Apparently unhappy with the already sleek and sexy Lotus Exige, Hennesey decided to break it in half, lengthen it, and put it back together with a different engine inside.  The Hennessey Venom GT ($TBA/~$600,000) is a sports car turned supercar, beast.  Limited to just 10 per year the ultra-exclusive Venom GT is another car I can definitely say I won’t be getting my hands on.  The Venom GT is powered by the Corvette ZR1’s supercharged 6.2 liter LS9 V8 which is sure to take the agile, but not overly quick Exige and make it a frightening track monster.  Oh and they took that stock Corvette engine and tuned it to put out 725hp and if that’s not enough two twin-turbo options will put out 1,000 and 1,200hp, respectively.  Other incredible features include a six-speed Ricardo gearbox, 15-inch carbon ceramic brake rotors, a programmable traction control system, and active aerodynamics system including adjustable rear wing, and some massive Michelin PS2 tires.  Here’s a nice video:
