Hennessey Performance has announced that Steven Tyler’s Venom GT Spyder will be on display on the concept car green in front of the Lodge at Pebble Beach 2012.
The Pebble Beach Councours d’Elegance starts next week and will showcase a wonderful display of unique cars. One of the cars on display is the black and first ever Venom GT Spyder.
The Spyder is powered by a twin-turbocharged Chevrolet LS-series aluminum V8 producing 1,244hp 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.
You’ll notice from the specs above that the power is slightly up for the Venom GT Spyder. Hennessey added around 30lbs of weight making modifications to allow the roof to be removed, the extra power is their way of compensating! This could be the second from last Venom GT. Hennessey only planned to build five examples, four have now been delivered leaving the fifth example still waiting to be built.
