Hennessey Venom GT is one of the supercars more powerful. Taking as a basis a Lotus Elise, the key to this vehicle is its lightness and lots of power. So much so that in 2014 I got to reach 435 km/h, beating the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. However, in Hennessey Performance not content with this, and have announced an update for this model.
Will come during the next week the SEMA Show Las Vegas and what they have done basically is to increase your power. Nothing more and nothing less than 1.471 horses will have the Venom GT 2016, which represents an increase of 207 HP with respect to its predecessor. This is accomplished by increasing the pressure of the turbochargers for its V8 engine of 7.0 liters, which passes of 19 psi to 26 psi.
Said engine also has been adapted to be able to work with bioethanol E85, of a higher octane rating. If to this we add that its weight is 1,250 kg, you find a machine with a power-to-weight of only 0,85 kg/CV. With this, Hennessey promises to be an acceleration of 0 to 96 km/h in just 2.4 seconds, from 0 to 160 km/h in 4.4 seconds and from 0 to 322 km/h in 12,8 seconds.
in Addition, it could complete the quarter mile at 9.4 seconds and its maximum speed would be above 450 km/h. John Hennessey has it clear, “Be the fastest matter. We want the Venom remains the most fast and exciting hiperdeportivo street”. He also indicated that only produced a few Hennessey Venom GT 2016, since we are focusing on the development of the Hennessey Venom F5.
