Our colleagues at Autoblog.com have spotted the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, which made an appearance this weekend at Cars & Coffee in Irvine, California. Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith and American Idol judge will take deliver of this very first Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.
The Spyder is powered by a twin-turbocharged Chevrolet LS-series aluminum V8 producing 1,200hp and 1,135lb-ft torque mated to a six-speed Ricardo manual transaxle. The Venom is capable of hitting 100km/h in about 2.2 seconds. Top speed will be slightly less than the Coupe’s 262mph. Stopping power comes from 15 inch, six-piston front and four-piston rear Brembo carbon ceramic brakes. The price is a considerable $ 1.1 million.
