Hennessey Performance confirmed today that the Texas firm will be removing the top of its lightweight Venom GT supercar. Known as the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, the car will produce a whopping 1,200-hp and will weight in at just 2,640 pounds.
“With the hardtop in place, the Venom GT offers a very visceral, raw, driving experience”, says company CEO, Don Goldman. “With the hardtop removed, the wind and the growl of the twin turbo V8 will offer our clients an even greater driving sensation.”
Prices for the Hennessey Venom GT will start at $1.1 million. The company said that it will build just five coupe Venom GTs for the 2013 model year, two of which have already been sold. Deliveries of the Venom GT will start in summer of 2012.
“We are excited to be able to offer an open-air American supercar, built in Texas, that provides the best power to weight ratio available on the market,” says company founder, John Hennessey. “Simply put, the Venom GT Spyder is defined by its simplicity, elegance, performance and – for a lucky few – a driving experience like nothing else on Earth.”
