Hennessey Performance (HPE) offers its ultra lightweight supercar with a removable roof. Dubbed the Venom GT Spyder, Hennessey’s 1,200 horsepower, 1200 kilo, mid-engine monster will offer an extra dose of wind and sound when driven topless.
“With the hardtop in place, the Venom GT offers a very visceral, raw, driving experience”, said 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.”
HPE will build just five Venom GTs for the 2013 model year. Clients can purchase either model: the Venom GT - with a fixed hardtop roof, or the Venom GT Spyder – with the new removable top. Base pricing for the Venom GT is $950,000 and the Venom GT Spyder is priced at $1.1 million.
“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,” said 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.”
