records. It's almost impossible to describe the Venom GT. It weighs
2,685 pounds and puts down 1,200 horsepower
You can also
raise the front of the car to clear unusual driveways and this
car has incredible speed."
GT is powered by General Motors' 6.2 L LS9 supercharged V8 and
it produces 1200 brake horsepower. The Hennessey Venom GT has
