The 2012 Hennessey Venom GT is a Lotus Elise-based hypercar with a set goal at breaking the top speed record. It rivals the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and Koenigsegg One:1.

The Hennessey Venom GT's engine is a 6.2L all-aluminum, twin-turbocharged V8 with a high power output of 1200 hp (895 kW) and 1155 ft·lb (1566 N·m), and its transmission is a six-speed manual that drives the rear wheels. Weighing only 2685 lb (1218 kg), the car is almost made entirely of carbon fiber and has a power-to-weight ratio of 1 PS per kilogram. The car can do 0-200 mph in 15.3 seconds and 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).

Description Edit

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.

Driving Characteristics Edit

The Hennessey Venom GT presents itself as a car geared mainly towards extreme top speed, capable of reaching its real life top speed of 270 mph (435 km/h). Its capability of reaching extreme speeds is also paired with its good acceleration, capable of doing 0-60 mph in under 2.7 seconds, comparable to cars like the Radical RXC Turbo and Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Despite this, the Venom GT's track performance is lower than expected as other cars in its class are superior in handling, braking, and gear shifting times; at best, the Venom GT can corner at 1.32 Gs on average in the Forza Motorsport series. Players in the Venom GT will have to slow down earlier before taking corners.

As of Forza Motorsport 6, the Venom GT has been replaced by the Koenigsegg One:1 as the ideal vehicle of choice for top speed runs due to having far better overall stats. In Forza Horizon 3, however, the Venom GT remains the fastest car at stock, still reaching 270 mph (435 km/h).

Upgrading the Venom GT allows it to take on even the highest-ranked cars, but the upgrade options are limited due to the Venom producing more than 1000 hp (746 kW).

Trivia Edit

  • The Venom GT's rear wing stays permanently up. It can be customized to be permanently down.
  • 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's engine cover and front bonnet cannot be opened.
