Very obviously, well to me anyway, this one has got United Kingdom registration plates and the DVLA (Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency executive agency) doesn't hand them out to (V5's etc) every Tom Dick and Harry that comes along. It's now high time for United Kingdom rules and regulations, the FMVSS or NHTSA or DOT or the DMV are not my problem or concern anymore. For instance if the SSC Tuatara never makes it over here I don't give a flying toss it's their problem, not mine.

Prospective owners can contact their own authorities in their own countries regards rules and regulations and violations, the EPA means nothing to anyone here, least of all the Government here.

Of course it does, the Lotus Exige is a production car.

Cocobe  4d ago @Anti-scam service

yeah i kind of remembered that not only is the car based off a Lotus chassis, it still registers as a Lotus... which really doesn't count as a Hennessey production car. It's a modified car, just like all the other Hennessey's


User avatar

TypeF173  4d ago @Cocobe

Koenigsegg built 6 "production" One:1 cars plus one prototype also sold. Show and Display rules and regulations and it's not on EPA databases last I checked. Yet they can lay claim to acceleration records based on previous generation architecture? In fact the "1MW" engine didn't get certified until 2017.

Only Bugatti and Pagani "mass" produce and I can garuntee you I've found discrepancies even there and that's really it.

Easy if Volkswagen or AMG pick up the slack.🙂

Wasn’t hennessey known for double crossing his customers ? I mean, who in the world would want to go near someone with a bad reputation and brag about it?

Don't worry about the downvotes. it's all from the same person with 8 burner accounts. thanks for going to lengths to find the actual registration records.


User avatar

TypeF173  4d ago @Cocobe

Really? That's interesting because from the timestamps those comments were made it's very easy to see who has logged on and when and how many people.

So for the record state this "1" person and the "8' alleged official accounts that don't exist seeing as the vast majority are known to everyone and those that have logged in that is in the last 12 hours so we can all be wary of them then? All kinds of registration records? Because what your proposing is utterly impossible.🤔

I've been burned myself on many occasions.

And yes absolutely Thank You to the other guy for the Show and Display licence registration tags. They'll be useful at some point but no EPA paperwork so the regulations don't apply to that car either. So it's "production" records don't count either accordingly to the comments you've made here and elsewhere and sure as hell not build production rates at 7 examples including the prototype.~For proving me right. I already know.

"Jan 30, 2013

Evo's Richard Meaden was on hand to witness the impressive World Record 0-300kph (186mph) run in the wild 1244bhp Hennessey Venom GT.
Hennessey actually engineered an electric power assisted steering system for this car!"

 

0-200MPH= 14.51 seconds
0-300km/h= 13.63 seconds TWO way average Guinness World Records whose rules and regulations passed this as a production car.

Compare the 0-200MPH the 1/2 mile and the 0-230MPH with the 2022 Bugatti Chiron Supersport in terms of performance, because it's been independently verified. You'll notice something. That a six speed manual transmission car can even turn in those seconds and speeds is unbelievable, even now.

What the hell is the Hennessey venom F5 going to do? Smh.

"Feb 7, 2013

Following its impressive World Record 0-300kph (186mph) run, Richard Meaden has driven the 1244bhp Hennessey Venom GT on the road."

Richard can comment on things like transmission/steering/braking/clutch/suspension feel and ride quality and dynamics. He used the word finesse and that comes with engineering.

@Fastestlaps @Z31 Turbo1984 @Hoppelmoppel123 can you add the Hennessey Venom GT numbers below please? There's a picture of Racelogic VBox verified numbers from an old Evo Magazine, apparently they were actually present at the production records attempts. It was also Guinness World Records certified in certain metrics and I can get you video if you need? There's 1/4 and 1/2 mile metrics too!🙂

Thanks.

0-200MPH= 14.51 seconds verified. 200-249MPH frame by frame from "264MPH" run= 11.781 seconds from RACELOGIC verified VBox.

14.51+11.871= 26.381 seconds= 0-400km/h!😲

Can't say I've ever seen that figure anywhere for this car. Well you have now. ;)

Ofcourse I'll triple check. But, not now.

I don't think people understand just how quick this little car IS. Nevermind back then. Anyway all this horseshit about being based on a Lotus is ****ing irrelevant particularly if you know what the forthcoming Koenigsegg Jesko and current Bugatti Chiron are based on, factually provable, in part.

Anyway I'm not nothing if not a man of my word and with that let's take a look at both cars but emphasis on the Hennessey Venom F5 ground up completely brand new literally everything.

And **** the airbags. Ahahaha!

https://www.venomgt.com/achievements/guinness-world-record/

Quote>"
0-300 km/h in just 13.63 seconds* TWO way average
0-60 mph in 3.05 seconds
0-100 mph in 5.88 seconds
Quarter-mile in 10.29 seconds at 158.83 mph
0-200 miles per hour (mph) in 14.51 seconds as verified by VBox GPS

During testing done at Ellington Airport a few weeks prior to the Guinness® record runs, the Venom GT® accelerated to 300 km/h in 13.48 seconds while on its way to 370 km/h run (229.9 mph) in just 19.96 seconds."

Can somebody add these figures @Fastestlaps? Boss?

Also quote>"The Venom GT® produces 1,244 horsepower and 1,155 lb-ft of torque. Weighing just 1,244 kg (2,743 lbs) the rear-wheel-drive Venom GT® delivers a power-to-weight ratio of 1 horsepower per each kilogram of vehicle curb weight."

The Hennessey Venom GT was the FIRST One:1 hypercar unless the SSC Ultimate Aero was.

Very SERIOUSLY respect this little car. Look up the current unofficial "record" for 0-200MPH and compare the difference of a couple of tenths. Then look at the 0-300km/h difference. It's a sweet little car.

And also one LAST thing, Hennessey were prepared to run BOTH ways at JFK when they hit 270MPH circa. They were DENIED the opportunity and their requests were REFUSED. There are no discussions about that. Period.

Who knows what might have happened? I'm sad it didn't occur.

Wolfgang Durhiemer allegedly stated to John Hennessey that quote>"But as a Bugatti executive once told me, “next time be sure to run in both directions”.

The quote is from Top Gear the revelation that it was the ex boss of Bugatti came from an radio interview with one of the guys FROM Bugatti. LOL! Can't say if it's still around.

Well a couple of years later the Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+ Longtail SMASHED 300MPH and it did a couple of other runs atleast one at OVER 299.6MPH. She absolutely knocked it right on out of the park.

But they didn't half look stupid doing it one way! LMFAO.

But then I get it. It was a pre production prototype and a validation run FOR that purpose. Bugatti didn't no toss about no "productions" record. They only held the OFFICIAL previous World Record for something like SEVEN straight years anyway? Hypercar of the decade!

Anyway, it's John's turn. I've looked at different angles preliminarily and at JFK it's going to be tight. But if there's one thing Hennessey know it's how to build an incredibly impressive engine. And she's a beauty. So Godspeed to them!

Can it beat SSC 286MPH peak plus two way average?

Well ALWAYS look at history. It's not like he hasn't set it before.

@ uptownfunker

The Venom GT IS a tuned Lotus. It is a heavily modified car but legally, it is a tuned Lotus.

A 9ff GT9 is a 9ff. Legally, it is a 9ff.

The Venom GT has a Lotus VIN, Lotus title, Lotus registration, etc.

A 9ff GT9 has a 9ff VIN, 9ff title, 9ff registration, etc.

Even John Hennessey does NOT call this a production car. Read his quote in his own words...

“I’m going to back off my claim that this is the world’s fastest production car,” Hennessey said. “This is the fastest hyper car you can buy. And I plan to do a run that’ll give the people in Wolfsburg something to think about.”

It's a tuned Lotus.


User avatar

luckyluke  8y ago

It is still registered as a lotus and the top speed run was not done by a normal venom gt, but by one with modified aero and only in one direction.


User avatar

uptownfunker  8y ago

...And actually this completes the standing halfmile at 206 mph and the standing fullmile at 253 mph. The top speed is at least 270 mph. http://www.venomgt.com/the-venom-gt/

This is NOT a tuned Lotus. It has a stretchier wheelbase and a completely different engine. Kinda like the 9ff GT9, or something like that.

The 0-200mph time is for the 2014 VGT with 1244hp out of an LS7.


User avatar

CrazyCat  8y 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.

BR2+  9y ago

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)

Flabernat  9y ago

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.)
