Hennessey Venom GT



link to the article: Poisonous Prey: Hennessey Reveals Venom GT Supercar - MSN Autos

a widebody exige with a Corvette ZR1 supercharged V8 motor and transmission in it, then tuned up to 725hp. The massive motor (6.2L V8) balloons the weight of the Exige up to 2400 lbs. According to the article, there will be twin turbo options to take the Venom GT up to 1000 and 1200 horsepower.

1200 hp sitting on 2400 lbs... 1000 hp per ton.

just for comparison:
  • Bugatti Veyron (1001 hp on 4486 lbs) = 446 hp per ton
  • Ferrari FXX (801 hp on 2546 lbs) = 629 hp per ton
  • Formula 1 (~800 hp on 1366 lbs) = 1171 hp per ton
