H Hennessey ανακοίνωσε θα παρουσιάσει επίσημα την Venom GT αύριο, Τετάρτη 17 Αυγούστου στο “McCall’s Motorworks Revival” το οποίο θα λάβει χώρα κατά τη διάρκεια του φετινού Pebble Beach στο Monterey. Να θυμίσω στα γρήγορα ότι η Venom GT φορά την δυνατή έκδοση του LS9 V8 biturbo 6.2 λίτρων της Corvette ZR1 που αποδίδει 1200 άλογα. Χάρη στην εκτενή χρήση carbon το αυτοκίνητο ζυγίζει λιγότερο από 1.071 κιλά και κάνει τα 0-100 χλμ/ώρα σε 2.4 δευτερόλεπτα με τελική ταχύτητα 440 χλμ/ώρα.

Μαζί με το δελτίο τύπου, η Hennessey έδωσε και φωτογραφίες από μια κατακίτρινη Venom GT που παρέδωσε πρόσφατα σε πελάτη της. Η παραγωγή της θα περιοριστεί σε πέντε μονάδες ετησίως με τιμή τα $950.000 (€660.000).

Hennessey Venom GT to Make Monterey Debut at McCall’s Motorworks Revival

August 15, 2011

MONTEREY, CALIFORNIA – Hennessey Performance (HPE) will unveil the company’s 1,200 HP, ultra-lightweight Venom GT supercar on Wednesday, August 17, 2011 at the McCall’s Motorworks Revival. Held each year at the Monterey Jet Center, Gordon McCall’s party kicks-off the Monterey / Pebble Beach weekend.

Fresh from its European debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the Hennessey Venom GT will be making its first appearance at Monterey. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to show the Venom GT to our friends and fellow enthusiasts at what has become one of the biggest and best car enthusiast events in the world,” says CEO, Don Goldman. “Gordon McCall’s Motorworks Revival combines serious car enthusiasts, world-class cars and aircraft, all in one fantastic party.”

The bright “bug-killer” yellow Venom GT will also be on display at the RM Auction at the Portolla Plaza hotel in downtown Monterey from Thursday, August 18 through Saturday, August 20.

Hennessey builds just five Venom GTs per year, making it one of the most exclusive supercars currently built. Available in both left-hand and right-hand drive configurations, the Venom GT costs $950,000 US Dollars, plus optional upgrades and shipping. Each vehicle is hand-built over a period of six months by a small team of craftsmen at the company’s facilities in Sealy, Texas, Lake Forest, California and Silverstone, England.

“Twelve hundred horsepower combined with in a mid-engine chassis that weighs twelve hundred kilos (2,685 lbs) – no other road car and only a handful of race cars can match the power to weight ratio of the Venom GT,” added HPE president and founder, John Hennessey. “It is a driver’s car, a supercar with a soul that will give you as much speed and performance as you dare ask of it”.
