The 0-200mph time is for the 2014 VGT with 1244hp out of an LS7.
  3 months ago
The 0-200 mph shouldn't be included. It says on their world record run that the 14.5 sec time was achived on the same run as when the car hit 0-186 in 13.1, which can also be observed and timed from watching the GPS tracked speed; which is when the car was experiencing a 4 mph tailwind. Because of the wind on That run, the venom was accelerating harder than usual.

It was over balanced out by the opposite run where the car went against the wind with a 6 mph headwind. On the opposite run it achieved 0-186 in over 14.1 sec and 0-200 in over 15.4.

I think the best source was the 0-230 mph testing they did earlier. 0-200 in something like 15 secs.

Top Speed is 270mph as seen on the video of the VBOX at JFK Space Ceneter shuttle landing runway.

I also believe these Bhp was make for better overall cars in the long shot, Just look at the massive improvments to the GT500.

And im pretty sure the P1, LaFerrari, (18 count as having Massive Hp numbers, Hell the GTR is already at 600Bhp, Now theres talk of the R36 GT-R having 800Bhp and Hybrid, And the upcomong(Maybe) New Lexus model having Over 600Bhp, Hp is getting more and more, Maybe not Audi(Even though we ALL know whet there really producing) But everyone is getting more and making better cars.(Although a little of the old times simplicity would be nice)

Well since we're talking about road cars and you jumped to race cars(and only mentioning horsepower for some reason), why stop there..? A 988hp Toyota TS040 is nothing.
NASA's Saturn V rocket made roughly 160,000,000 horsepower!
(with a stop speed of about 26,500mph.)

technically not the most powerful toyota
1. toyota TS040 (988hp, 875kg, 1200hp pr tonne) 7 (800hp, 7xxkg, never raced, playable in GT)
3. toyota 88C-V (700+hp, below tonne weight)
4. toyota GT-one
5. toyota TS030
6. any toyota TF-model (F1)

as for the most powerful roadcar, yes, but even then it never had a massive power boost for the NE (both the GT-R and 458 got 600hp, the NE only had a 10hp increase)

Not necessarily just horsepower, but the whole car(should have been more specific)... That said, none of those brands have produced a more powerful car(in recent memory)... GT-R=most powerful Nissan, LFA-most powerful Toyota...etc
  1 year ago, last edited 1 year ago

except for the fact that the LFA and GT-R not having massive hp numbers

and the P1, laferrari and 918 doesn't have more power than the veyron

the fastest pistonpowered car on earth only has 2200hp or 2500 depending on source (speed demon), just get that thing street legal and make the gear ratios short enough for it to start without pushing help, and then you have the fastest streetlegal car in the world

we see tuned cars with simular power getting NOWHERE NEAR 462mph (maximum recorded)

@hemisrt: a production of 5 i believe... but still.

Great car, but I believe it is NOT a production car.

I love horsepower wars. Any time you let engineers go crazy it usually improves the brand as a whole... GT-R, LFA, ZR1...etc These cars pass down their tech and advancements to the cars for us common folk :)

Hp aint going no where, Cars are just gonne get more powerful and heavier as the years go on, But i do think there getting out of hand, 1400Bho Koenigsegg, 700Hp Dodges, Its getting crazy, But is it fun owning a car that is rather powerful, May be ridiculous, But cars like these are ment to be.
  1 year ago
just shows how pointless it is for firms like Koenigsegg to keep pushing higher BHP numbers. It's not very difficult. Plenty of turbo tuned cars have even more power than that. holding lap records of like nurburgring, silverstone... now that's different

I consider any car that builds on another car for a tunercar, OEM status or not
  2 years ago
big question should we delet this car or not?

Like pointed out befor Hennessey is no car producer has no OEM status..

ALL Venom are registered all around the world as Lotus Exige (modified).

9ff, RUF, Brabus, Saleen etc. have all OEM status... in case of RUF since decades...

As impressive as the numbers are, there is a reason why Hennessay has no OEM status ..
  2 years ago
I'm not sure why Hennessey hasn't achieved OEM status. It could possibly be due to the lawsuits (some that he lost) and complaints from customers.

Here is an OLD article about some complaints/lawsuits. I'm sure there have been more.

The stuff about out-of-state cars being parted out (if true) is seriously illegal. If just ONE case of that is true, Hennessey deserves his bad reputation and if that bad reputation stops him from becoming an OEM, he deserves whatever negativity he gets.

@NIN I didn't know that Hennessey had not acquired OEM status either. Interesting; he should pursue that status.

I didn't realize that.

this thing is as much a Lotus is as an Aston is a Mini.

So you're saying that Aston martins are registered as Minis ? Cuz the Venom GT is still legally a Lotus
  2 years ago
@ Apathy

The fact that it is based on another car isn't the problem. The number that they make isn't the problem. The problem is that legally, Hennessey is NOT an OEM. The Venom GT is NOT a production car even though Hennessey misled people to believe that he either had or was about to have OEM status. At the moment, Hennessey is just a tuner.

RUF, Saleen, BRABUS, Alpina, 9ff are legally OEMs even though they also offer tuning services. When you buy a RUF, it is legally a RUF. It has a RUF VIN (not Porsche). The Venom GT still has the Lotus VIN which is probably a few years older than owners realize. The Lexus/Toyota example isn't the same since both are legally OEMs (same company, too).

Dunno either what to classify it as, But given there only bulding 29, It doesn't count as a production car( I believe Guiness counts 30) But no other "Tested" "Stock" car has reached that speed, Agera R prolly wond do past 265Mph, And a 2011 Ultimate Aero given enuff room, And a straight runway I believe could eclipse its time.

But one thing I did notice, Is the Roof Scoop, Wheels, Splitter, Exhaust look different in that run, And no Hennessey Badge....
