That thing sounded like a beast, and looked so aggresive! I about shat my pants!
I was going to go to that Cars and Coffee but when the alarm went off I knew it was a weekday alarm. Hours later I realized it wasn't. I would like to have seen the car. Oh well.

80% of the cost is profit. but who cares.. money is just a concept to people like steven tyler. $1M is just a drop in the bucket...

The silver one is not his car, they took the pictures off and put general ones on. His is a black car, see my other link...

Lol It's a stock Elise chassis. Manshoon is incorrect in that statement. The rear sub frame is of course, bespoke.

"I really started paying attention to cars was when they came out with the Nissan Z, the first body. Then I seen the Cherokees, the old square ones, and I was like, “Wow, that’s cool.” Then I seen the Isuzu jeeps and I seen the Wranglers."

I think a lot of the price tag is for what it can do. It is the fastest street car... in the world.

I'm not aware of one of these ever setting a speed record anywhere... in the world. Sorry, Forza doesn't count.

The cost is not the point nor is what one could have instead. Steve could buy all those, times three and then like Clapton pay 5M for custom Ferrari.

I used to own a Panoz AIV (about the only thing have in common with Steven Tyler) and was at the Panoz factory talking with Dan Panoz when the topic of Steven Tyler's Panoz came up. Dan Panoz told me that Steven Tyler had crashed his AIV several times.

I have NO idea how good of a driver Tyler is, I just thought it was funny.

Rocket on Wheels: Venom GT

There was a great review of the Spyder version of the Venom GT in the video below. Hennessey said you have to respect the car or it will punish you. Notice he didn't say, "It will kill you." Make no mistake. It is an extreme car, built to perform, but it is very dangerous. It is not for novices. The old expression about pilots, old or bold, but none old and bold applies with this car.
