5 Lotus Exige on steroids or Hennessey Venom GT

Ambitious hyper-car from Viper tuner Hennessey. Projected figures: 1000 hp and 1225 kg. more than 800 hp per ton. 0-60 mph in less than 2.5 seconds. 0-300 km/h in 14 seconds.

These are pictures released very recently:

The question is why it has to look so similar to Lotus Elise/Exige? If they like the shape they can use the shape but at least they change light cluster and air vent design.

the reason it looks like a lotus is th fact that it was designed by the same guy that does the elise. Reading all that forum stuff on hennesey really makes him look like an a**.

You guys should read about all of the law suits against Hennessey. They are a really shady company, known for stealing parts from customers cars to sell to other cars. It looks like parts aren't the only thing they are stealing though since the body of this car is a blatant knock off.

Edit: I should also add that he used to post some crazy shit on the different Viper forums and get in huge internet fights with people, I used to love to read them, but the last time I searched I couldn't find the threads. It bugs me that so many magazines praise him without giving the full story.

Looks great, but i really dont think it will do 0-60 in less than 2.5s its limited to the tires and 1225kg thats good but the engine might weight more than maybe they expect
