The 2012 Hennessey Venom GT, also abbreviated as simply Hennessey Venom, is a Lotus Elise/Exige-based hypercar that appears in the May Top Gear Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 4 and has returned for all subsequent main series titles. It also appears in the Hyper Endurance Car Pack for Forza Motorsport 6: Apex.

The Hennessey Venom GT can reach a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h), which was recorded in 2014. In that same year, the car was also updated to generate 1244 hp (928 kW) from its twin-turbocharged V8 engine. In 2017, the Venom GT was succeeded by the Venom F5.[1]

Description

Born with the goal of being a 1,000-plus horsepower car that weighs less than 3,000-pounds, the Hennessey Venom GT is based on the Lotus Elise—complete with the Venom 1,000 horsepower, twin-turbo motor, then lightened. Certainly these are reasonable goals, so long as destroying a Bugatti Veyron’s 0-200 mph time is your primary focus. As a result, the Hennessey Venom GT does 0-200 mph faster than many average cars car do 0-60 mph: 15.3 seconds to be exact. That’s almost 10 seconds faster than the Bugatti. The G-forces felt under full acceleration nearly equal that of a fighter jet doing an inverted loop. The all-aluminum 6.2-liter, twin-turbo, V8 delivers an astonishing 1,200 horsepower, put to the pavement via a six-speed transmission connected to the rear wheels. The car is almost entirely carbon fiber composite and weighs in at a mere 2,685 pounds. The Venom GT has the highest power-to-weight ratio of any car on the market and only five will be built this year.

Characteristics

The Hennessey Venom GT is built on a heavily modified Lotus Exige 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. 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. Hennessey Performance and the Venom GT are unaffiliated with Lotus.

The Venom GT uses a twin-turbocharged 6.2L (6,162 cc) GM-sourced twin-turbocharged V8 engine. For the 2012 model year, the engine produces 1200 hp (895 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.

Performance

The Hennessey Venom GT is a top speed-focused car, with a powerful, high-displacement engine giving it the capability to reach extremely high speeds. Off the line, though, the Venom GT has to deal with wheelspin due to being RWD and having a very high-power engine. The Venom GT performs spectacularly well in the acceleration department, launching from a stop to 60 mph (97 km/h) and 100 mph (161 km/h) in 2.5 and 5.3 seconds, respectively. It has one of the highest top speeds in the Forza series, hitting up to a maximum of 270 mph (435 km/h), although the Koenigsegg One:1 can pull off a higher top speed through the use of Speed Boosts and Loop-the-Loops via Forza Horizon 3's Hot Wheels Expansion. The Venom GT also has the problem of moderate understeer around corners, although it noticeably turns more sharply than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

Trivia

  • The Venom GT's rear wing stays permanently up. It can be customized to be permanently down as well.
  • Despite clocking a higher top speed than the Veyron Super Sport's 267.856 mph (431.072 km/h), the Venom GT does not officially qualify in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest production car as its top speed run was not done in two directions, and to be classified as a production car, Hennessey would have to build 30 or more units, but only built 29.
  • In Forzavista, the Venom GT's engine cover and front bonnet cannot be opened.
