The Hennessey Venom GT is a Lotus Exige-based hypecar created by Texas-based Hennessey Performance Engineering. It is known for being one of the fastest production cars in the world.

Description

The Hennessey Venom GT's chassis is a heavily modified version of the Lotus Exige's chassis. Hennessey claims that the chassis uses components from the Exige, including the roof, doors, side glass, windscreen, cockpit, floorpan, HVAC system, wiper, and headlights. Hennessey and the Venom GT are not affiliated with Lotus Cars.

The Venom GT uses carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber wheels, along with Brembo six-piston brake calipers in the front and four-piston brake calipers in the rear.

The Venom GT uses a twin-turbocharged 7.0L (7,011 cc) GM LSX engine that is sometimes incorrectly thought to be a variation of the GM LS7 engine with which it shares some similarities. The engine produces 1244 hp (928 kW) at 6,600 rpm and 1155 ft·lb (1566 N·m) at 4,400 rpm. The mid-mounted V8 is mated to the rear wheels with a Ricardo 6-speed manual transmission, the same one used in the Ford GT.

On January 21, 2013, the Venom GT set a Guinness World Record for the fastest production car from 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) with an average acceleration time of 13.63 seconds. In addition, the car set an unofficial record for 0-200 mph (0-322 km/h) acceleration at 14.51 seconds, beating the Koenigsegg Agera R's time of 17.68 seconds, making it the unofficial fastest accelerating production car in the world.

On April 3, 2013, the Venom GT hit 265.7 mph (427.6 km/h) over the course of 2 miles (3.2 km) during testing at the United States Naval Air Station Lemoore in Lemoore, California. Hennessey used two VBOX 3i data logging systems to document the run, with VBOX officials on hand to verify the numbers.

On February 14, 2014, on the Kennedy Space Center's 3.2 mi (5.2 km) shuttle landing strip in Florida, the Venom GT was recorded as doing a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h), but in only a single direction. As the run was done in only one direction and only 16 Venom GTs have been sold to date, it does not officially qualify as the world's fastest production car in the Guinness Book of Records.

While the Venom GT is claimed to have a top speed of 277 mph (446 km/h), in real life, it was tested to hit only 270 mph (435 km/h), as mentioned earlier.

Hennessey Venom GT base stats and price

The Hennessey Venom GT was added in the Fuel Events Update as high-end Class S car with the following rank statistics:

Performance

The Hennessey Venom GT's main specialty is its high top speed, albeit lower than displayed, due to the large speed multiplier of 85.74%. While the Venom GT performs rather well in acceleration and handling, it suffers from poor nitro, along with subpar nitro efficiency (9/12.5/18, while still better than the normal 9/14/18), which can spell serious trouble if the Venom GT runs out of nitro whilst accelerating. This leaves the Venom GT at the mercy of the Mercedes-AMG C 63 Coupe Touring Car 2014, which has the exact same real total speed yet has far better overall stats.

Usage (Multiplayer)

The Hennessey Venom GT is similarly a poor choice for multiplayer with its lackluster performance. The Hennessey Venom GT will be put in races with the Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition, Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Edition, Aston Martin Vulcan and Apollo Intensa Emozione, all of which it cannot compete against.

Verdict

All in all, the Hennessey Venom GT is largely a collector's car. Despite this, the Venom GT is required for completion of Season 6: Adrenaline of Career mode. The Venom GT is also one of the Enduro Cars used in the Enduro Double Down event for the Icona Vulcano V12 Hybrid, details of which can be found here.

The Hennessey Venom GT is part of the New World Glory Collection which awards a total of 40 Tuning Kits when completed.

Price

The Hennessey Venom GT had an original buying price of A8Credits 3,000,000 but has been reduced to A8Credits 2,250,000. MAX costs A8Credits 2,474,350 while Pro Kits require A8Credits 1,597,283, 15 Class S Parts card, 16 Mid-Tech cards, 28 Advanced Tech cards and 40 FIV8 Engine cards.

Asphalt Overdrive

The Hennessey Venom GT appears as a Turf 5 car and costs 1,250 Gold to purchase. It has a x1.5 bonus on Takedown points.
