We’ve all heard of Hennessy, that crazy car company that makes fast cars go faster. Their tuning jobs on Corvettes, Mustangs, and Camaros are beauties, but nothing touches their most prized product, the Hennessey Venom GT.
They basically took an ultra-light and modified Lotus Exige body, and crammed a turbo V8 inside of it. And against all odds, it worked.
The Venom GT hit a ridiculously quick 270.4 mph on the Kennedy Space Center runway, a record for a production car. The 0-60 mph time comes in at just 2.7 seconds and 0-100 mph is a mere 5.6 seconds. And they don’t get anymore rare, with only 12 in existence – carrying a starting price tag of $1.2 million.
While all 12 models were snapped up by wealthy gearheads, one is listed on the DuPont Registry. It’s actually the same one that broke the record at the space center.
The asking price? The original $1.2 million.
