Video: 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder faster than Veyron?

Brett Davis 1

A video has been released previewing the new 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder on the dyno. The car has been ordered by Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler.

The full specifications of the open-top model haven’t been released, however, it’s believed to be powered by the same 6.2-litre twin-turbo V8 as seen in the coupe. In that it’s available in three states of tune; 597kW (800hp), 746kW (1000hp), and 895kW (1200hp).

As for the performance and speed, company founder John Henessessy apparently said to a US publication, “Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is NOT the fastest open top car in the world… The Venom GT Spyder is and we will prove it in the near future. Bugatti can kiss my ass.”

By the looks of the car’s potential in the video below, it might just be faster than the mega Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. We’ll keep you updated on official recordings.

Pricing for the insane supercar starts at an equally insane US$1.1 million. Hennessey plans to build five of them.

  1. Stupidly expensive for a car that is based on a lotus and uses an engine from a vette. Dont know how they can charge so much for a car that isnt 100% unique, their production costs would be next to nothing compared to a stand alone super car.
