America Fuck Yeah? Er, hold on there pardner. Based on a English car's chassis (the Lotus Exige) The Venom GT is built and tested at Silverstone, England....Take that Europe? not quite. *Correction of previous post*

I hope koenigsegg Will smoke that lotus!
Richard Nichols Jan 25, 2013
It's quick. Very quick and I like that, but I'd still have a mclaren p1.

Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
I agree with Luis and Jacob.
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
@ Jacob, Luis ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
Luis Mele Jan 22, 2013
Lets see if the agera r 2013 can retrieve it
Shane Carroll Jan 22, 2013
There's a reason the LS platform is the most popular engine built. I suppose a 16 cylinder quad turbo engine is the pinnacle of reliability.
Jacob Burford Jan 22, 2013
Well done Hennessy! Still prefer a Agera R, but still great!
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
There is nothing original about this car, also it is properly running so much boost that it won't last long.
Aron Flemmer Jan 22, 2013
I am no american but i like the US. i am from Sweden and in winter here YOU NEED 4wd!!!
Aron Flemmer Jan 22, 2013
I am not surprised that it's so much faster from 0-300 than the veyron. becouse the veyron's weight is nearly 2 tonnes. And i'm guessing this is about 1,2 - 1,4 tonnes. The veyron is luxurious and it has got 4wd. The henessey has none of that.
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
"In house" does not mean one building. It can be multiple, just as long as its done by the same organization.
Shane Carroll Jan 22, 2013
@Evan nothing is designed or manufactured in house? Perhaps do, say, 30 seconds of research before flopping your "facts" around
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
Of course someone else can build it if they didn't engineer any of the parts themselves
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
I still will take any European supercar or hypercar over this anydau
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
It will only be shortlived.
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
And I predict that someone will beat this in the near future.
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
And nothing is designed or manufactured in house, disregard the gay thing, that was a low blow.
Evan Elisio Jan 22, 2013
Ok..... That still doesn't change the fact that I don't like it. It may be good, but it lacks in other areas in my opinion
Phillip Newport Jan 22, 2013
Thats pretty amazing, but I'd still have an Agera R over the Venom.
Aron Flemmer Jan 22, 2013
Well done henessey, but everyone that knows what a car is made to do knows that the veyron is a better car. You can use the veyron in normal life and it's fast but the henessey is just fast. No offense but thats my opinion. Sorry for my bad english.
Jack Howard Jan 22, 2013
So many people think they can just build a 1000+hp car and expect it to function properly.
Tim Preisinger Jan 22, 2013
@Evan. Can't wait to see you build a car better then this one! You claim a retard can build this, so that means you can too! I cant wait to see it!!! ...idiot.
Jackson Michael Jan 21, 2013
Ya Texans hate gay people
Tyler Tarbox Jan 21, 2013
@Evan. You really are a moron. This car is a masterpiece. And with regards to Texas, I don't really see how it's gay at all. It's quite possibly the only state that could secede and actually survive. You'd get you're ass kicked here in Texas
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Hahahaha Evan you poor idiot. Please build one of these. Lets see it. I bet you can't even build a Lego Venom GT
Ben Knorr Jan 21, 2013
I sense a shitstorm coming lol
Evan Elisio Jan 21, 2013
Correction.... A retard can build one. And how about using you own parts manufactured and designed in house.
Evan Elisio Jan 21, 2013
It also does not change the fact that it is American tuned shit, you just made the lotus extremely gay...... Like the state it comes from..... Texas.
Evan Elisio Jan 21, 2013
You are forgetting that is not stock. Take that....also it really ugly and overpriced for what it is. I can build one easily.
Kyle Rawn Jan 21, 2013
Yeah cause compared to these two the Veyron is a fat pig with less power and geared for top speed.
Sasa Jungic Jan 21, 2013
Oh good. I always thought Agera was slow. :D.. This is kinda silly. It's just numbers. Of course its faster it has more power. The thing that shocks me is how slow Veyron is compare to Agera and Venom
Austin Sullivan Jan 21, 2013
I'd take an Agera R over this any day. Looks better and the interior isn't crap.
supra_mkiv Jan 21, 2013
I commented
Jackson Michael Jan 21, 2013
I agree with Kyle
Felix Rhett Jan 21, 2013
I can't argue that koenigsegg motors aren't influenced by ford technologies, but I can maintain that koenigsegg has been building their own motors for over 7 years now.
Felix Rhett Jan 21, 2013
@william the agera's motor is actually the second to be developed and built in house. The ccr used a 4.7Lsc ford modular v8, but the ccx (2006) used a 4.7L twin supercharged v8 manufactured by koenigsegg themselves.
Sam Oglesby Jan 21, 2013
Take that Europe it's based on a lotus I admit most of it is not a lotus anymore
Ashton Summers Jan 21, 2013
Make sure you visit the toilet before stepping on the go pedal.
Justin Routh Jan 21, 2013
Anyone calling this a Lotus needs to go watch a video on what they do to turn that lotus into the venom, its almost a whole new car. It still is based off a lotus so the comments about it handling bad cuz its american are just plain stupid
Daniel Kenneth Babler Jan 21, 2013
I loved that first sentence! Lol
Aaron Crisp Jan 21, 2013
This is so sick!!!!!
William Downs Jan 21, 2013
Felix koenigsegg was using a modified ford engine from the beginning, they stopped with the Agera motor, motor in the Agera is there first ever fully developed and built in house motors, it has dimensions and tolerances used from a ford racing block... take your own advice Felix
Kyle Rawn Jan 21, 2013
I'd still take a Kรถnigsegg though. Because you're never gonna use these speeds, so I'd want some luxury interior in my car.
Kyle Rawn Jan 21, 2013
I felt like this was already common knowledge :/ Anyway, let's see some track times!
Thibault Leroy Jan 21, 2013
@Johny Well then a retarded 8 year old boy made the fastest production car in the world... @Leonard i agree
Shane Carroll Jan 21, 2013
I'm sorry but if you wouldn't drive this because "its got a Lotus body" you need to be checked into a mental facility
Ryu Tsuchiya Jan 21, 2013
can it take corners without killing everybody? xD
Arick Voigt Jan 21, 2013
@Leonard: Oh but Europeans can take a stab at us anytime they want right? It's just a bit of humor.
Felix Rhett Jan 21, 2013
@skyler @johnny c'mon guys, not even the ccx used a ford engine. Koenigsegg has been building their own engines for nearly a decade. If you don't know what your talking about, don't post!
Lou Guerrero Jan 21, 2013
Don't be so sensitive, Leonard. It's all in good fun.
Pablo Herasme Jan 21, 2013
I rather go on a vehicle that is not based of a lotus
Colby Church Jan 21, 2013
@Alex Well isn't someone upset? I would rather be in the Venom GT rather than that fat ugly beetle. :)
Leonard Pai Chidamwoyo Jan 21, 2013
'Take That Europe'is a bit uncalled for and that statement is what's causing all the fights.Its a great achievement by Venom but its ruined by Carbuzz childish headline.Its a great car n where or who made it shouldn't matter.
Jack Howard Jan 21, 2013
It only took a second to reach 200mph from 186? Holy whizz.
Skyler White Jan 21, 2013
Actually, the CCR and the CCX used modified Ford engines. The Agera's is built completely in house.
Johnny Matias Jan 21, 2013
People complaining that this is based off a lotus, well the engine the Agera R uses is a modified Ford V8... And the Veyron is like a retarded 8 year old told them what to do. Hey let's put 2 v8s together and just for extra measure throw 4 turbos on it! And then make them even bigger!!!!
Nodnarb Ydil Jan 21, 2013
I think Romnel wa referring the the AC Shelby cobra
Sam Reinsel Jan 21, 2013
@Rommel I think the major difference is that the Cobra is actually sold by ford itself. A better comparison would be a Saleen or Rousche Mustang.
Victor Pitts Jan 21, 2013
And if people talk shit about this car after seeing the numbers on paper and realize what this car really is, then those people need their 'car card' revoked because you are no longer a car enthusiast.
Victor Pitts Jan 21, 2013
'Merica! And the Venom GT is 600k-900k cheaper then the Veyron!
Pablo Herasme Jan 21, 2013
Im impressed
Tyler Ray DeFord Jan 21, 2013
They ought to close that new toll road in Texas to test it. It would be symbolic.
Jordan Smith Jan 21, 2013
Whoo! 'Merica!
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 21, 2013
@ Jose there's very few places in the world where the speeds can be reached. One of them is the vw testing facility which they won't let anyone else use
Ray Moreno Jan 21, 2013
He is Pat TEXAS WHOOP ASS! MERICA! lol.
Quinn Rogers Jan 21, 2013
It's not like this is the only car that uses parts from other companies
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Jay, what makes you think this will fall apart? Are you butt hurt too?
Jay Kolvenbag Jan 21, 2013
At least the koenigsegg and the bugatti won't fall apart
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Haha!!! Suck it haters!!!
Elijah Chet Roseberry Jan 21, 2013
I love everyone who is talking shit, I nor anyone else cares that's it's designed in England. We made it better, suck a dick. Not to mention that there is still another 300+ hp on tap.
Rommel Powell Jan 21, 2013
People complaining about it being a "Lotus" lol. I wonder if the same people bitch about the Shelby Cobra......think about it.
Andrew Henderson Jan 21, 2013
"Take that Europe" they using a base car thats designed and Assembled in Hethel, Norfolk, England! Duuuuuhhhhh!!!
Jose Manuel Rosa Garcia Jan 21, 2013
My question is why they havent tested the venom gt's top speed yet? They rated the car to 272 mph with no proof of that yet.
Tim Preisinger Jan 21, 2013
Don't be jealous now :)
Lucas Dvoracek Jan 21, 2013
Well that's about the same as my 0- 60....
Droops Asistio Jan 21, 2013
"TakeThatEurope" yet the car's design is borrowed from an Elise. wow
Matt Piccolo Jan 21, 2013
Wasn't their an article on this like 2, 3 weeks ago?
Adam Schoenberg Jan 21, 2013
Has it been to the Nurburgring to see how it stacks up with something besides straight line speed?
Alex Hohenzollern Jan 21, 2013
next veyron will be faster don't worry as usual all that counts in the states is how fast it is on a straight line which one would you rather go 200 mph+ in the over engineered German or the crazy American with the unpredictable hi speed handling
Ryan Lopez Jan 21, 2013
WTF it's 3 in the morning and I'm sick
Kabab Mashwi Nov 20, 2013
First of all this car isn't even road legal in America, it is made in England, based on an English car(lotus) , take that Europe...,. I don't think so...l.
David Jackson Jun 26, 2013
Very fast!
Chris Chavez Feb 13, 2013
Better looking then the Bugatti and faster.
David Lee Jan 24, 2013
@Cody The car looks like a piece of shit standing still. Why base such a fast car off a lotus? If they had a purpose built body, it would go faster.
Cody Gillard Jan 22, 2013
Car looks fast standing still wish it was the fastest car in the world
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
To bad there is almost no lot use left in there but the windshield and some little bits
Anthony Dillon Jan 22, 2013
Just a lotus with a better engine.
Tom Wilson Jan 22, 2013
Game changer

Lol, I was putting a -__- face down, but it turned to a ... Idk y, but my friend was over and we just decided to play Nfs for fun
Ashton Summers Jan 21, 2013
Thanks C-3PO.
Jackson Michael Jan 21, 2013
I didn't realize that Steven Tyler had sideburns and flo rida wears ascots. There's really no major difference it's just the personal preference of the ultra-rich
Ashton Summers Jan 21, 2013
The difference between this and the Veyron are the drivers. On has got sideburns and is blasting Pantera and the other is wearing an ascot and has a dog name Jacques, also with a matching ascot.
Aaron Crisp Jan 21, 2013
I honestly don't know if I could handle all that power without killing myself, but that's what makes me love it more.
Nathan Lo Jan 21, 2013
Hennessys the best :)
James Salaba Jan 21, 2013
Far nicer lookin then veyron too!
Jim Ricard Jan 21, 2013
You are one cool dude Zach
Alex Bouckley Jan 21, 2013
Love Hennessey. The factory is about an hour away from my house!
Colby Church Jan 21, 2013
Venom is king boys...
David Harris Jan 21, 2013
Venom looks so good. I would pick this over a veyron anyday
Zachary Maurer Jan 21, 2013
I just got this in need for Speed, most wanted. I had to performance my Bugatti veyron Vitesse just to beat it -_-
Ray Moreno Jan 21, 2013
Once again the most referred and used saying. "They're all good cars in their own respect"...VENOM GT STILL WHOOP'D THAT A$$! hahahaa.
Carlton Salmon Jan 21, 2013
Completely agree with Paul and Shivash.
Luke Fincher Jan 21, 2013
This car was meant strictly to be a drivers car, no gimmicks just all raw car that was built to get a specific job done... Which it did. I think it is a totally different type of car than the Bugatti
Ian Barger Jan 21, 2013
Yeah i agree. I hate that it just looks like a Lotus.
Ben Doolittle Jan 21, 2013
If every panel is original why not make it look original?
Bader Al Ajeel Jan 21, 2013
Now what happened to ssc tuatara
Paul Trahan Jan 21, 2013
I agree with Shivash. I respect the Venom GT and what it has accomplished, but if I had the money I would go with the Agera R. The Agera just seems like a better package overall even though it is slower.
Shivash Singh Jan 21, 2013
I respect it though but if you look at how long development took and overall quality and what you get it backs up my idea
Shivash Singh Jan 21, 2013
although its faster than the veyron i think it lacks something that the agera r and veyron has i get the sense this car was just built for beating the veyron whereas veyron was made because they wanted make it and same with the agera r
Description: During testing, the Venom GT was also clocked at going from 0-60 mph in 3.05 seconds, 0-100 mph in 5.88 seconds, the standing quarter-mile in 10.29 seconds at 158.83 mph and the standing half-mile at ...

Isn't the transmission out of a ford gt?
Adam Thomson Jan 28, 2013
It was actually welsh people who started america!!
Sam Reinsel Jan 26, 2013
Yeah but white people from europe killed off or drove off all the Native americans.... They settled this land, not founded this country. (No disrespect intended, just historical accuracy)
Miguel Jimenez Jan 23, 2013
It was the Native Americans who founded this country. And were are the native Americans originally from? Oh yea Asia.
Miguel Jimenez Jan 23, 2013
Jack, and if I'm not prove me wrong.
Jack Howard Jan 22, 2013
Miguel, I hope you're kidding.
Daniel Permien Jan 22, 2013
Peter you little boy....... Columbus was from repuplic of genoa in Liguria.... Back in the day it was an independant state of its own. It became a part of italy in 1797
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
Nvm my last statement I was mid informed. LSX refferes to anyย LS motor that has been bored and stroked past stock displacmemt
Miguel Jimenez Jan 22, 2013
I believe it was the Asians who founded this country thousands of years before Columbus. I don't know why our country gives credit to these (like my grandfather would call them) without shame Europeans.
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
Its not an LSX, its an LS2 that's gets bored and stroked to a 7.0L
Elvis Ford Jan 22, 2013
Sam you're a stupid person
Jack Howard Jan 22, 2013
Because there isn't a track they can do it on because Volkswagen has the only one you can achieve top speed with
Brandon P Ralston Jan 21, 2013
They have said this car will do 275 for almost a year now and yet it still hasn't done it! Why not break the record and take it from the Bugatti. If nobody wants to run it flat out let me have a crack ill do it !
Tyler Tarbox Jan 21, 2013
@Jack. Excellent point. I hadn't thought of that
Janak Solanki Jan 21, 2013
Dude that thing is pulling a G during acceleration in first and second! Holy Crap!
Ashton Summers Jan 21, 2013
@shane. In addition to the Scandinavians. It is proposed that Chinese explorer Zheng He may have set foot in the America's 70 years before Columbus, thus he gets the bronze. Not sure what this has to do with the venom though.
Sam Hansen Jan 21, 2013
This is just a stretched Lotus with a LSX...
Sergio Arevalo Jan 21, 2013
Great for America??? But where is the Autobahn ( Freeway ) to run this thing!!! Like in Deutschland ( Germany )......
Peter Mark Gacek Jan 21, 2013
Hahaha Columbus was Italian. Go to school children.
Ben Knorr Jan 21, 2013
what a ballistic machine! You gotta admire its capabilities. I'd love to see a video of someone wrestling with this beast at the nurburgring.
Jack Howard Jan 21, 2013
This car is geared to go 272mph. Of course the acceleration is gonna suffer a little.
Nathan Lo Jan 21, 2013
I'm actually kinda surprised the quarter mile isn't sub 10seconds.....
Mario Callirgos Jan 21, 2013
I wonder if you people feel the same about the ford gt
Kris C. Lopez Jan 21, 2013
Unfortunately no matter how american it's heart is the Brits deserve a slice of the cake here.
Tyler Tarbox Jan 21, 2013
0-60 in 3 seconds. Hmm. Don't get me wrong that is insanely fast but I would have expected this car to be a couple tenths faster there
Israel Teniente Jan 21, 2013
Still a tuned car, a tuned lotus, thats british
Shane Carroll Jan 21, 2013
@Daniel not particularly surprising when you factor in that weight and AWD equals good initial grip off the line. But everywhere else that weight drags it down
Wmg Chinchilla Jan 21, 2013
God blessed Texas
Daniel Zammit Jan 21, 2013
Funny how its slower 0-60 & 1/4 mile the the Veyron?
David Gray Jan 21, 2013
Whatever it's nae my country I don't give a shit. I just knew it wasn't Brits that discovered as was said lower down the page.
Elias Harb Jan 21, 2013
The g meter is upside down isnt it ?
Shane Carroll Jan 21, 2013
Actually David, many historians agree that the Scandinavians sailing from Greenland set foot on the continent hundreds of years before Columbus "discovered" it.
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
He was Portuguese. And Amerigo Vespucci technically discovered America. Regardless, all the butthurt Euro boys down there are crackin me up.
David Gray Jan 21, 2013
Wasn't it Columbus that discovered America? He was Spanish, nae British.
Colby Church Jan 21, 2013
And America doesn't have any super light, exotic looking cars to tune to this extremity. Lotus was a great choice. America was originally founded by Brits anyways. But Europe has SO many car markets to choose from it isn't even funny. Logical choice.
Colby Church Jan 21, 2013
@Philippe This thing would destroy on the track dude. Lightweight body, fat tires, low center of gravity. A complete track beast.

Although i like it, the Veyron was genesis, since that car everybody is trying to beat it. So that's why i would take the veyron.
Nick Palmer Jan 21, 2013
Too bad it's built off of a European car...
David Gray Jan 21, 2013
Start with nothing but raw material, then you can be patriotic about it.
Johnny Matias Jan 21, 2013
Remember every body panel is reworked kinda like the Koenigsegg's ford engine. The chassis is clearly not lotus because its been completely stretched and fitted to a v8 instead of a non British Toyota I4. This thing is about as British as the real one.
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Philippe, there's vids of it at the Goodwood Festival of speed from awhile ago. It's hard to have videos if this car when there's only 7 of them.
Jordan Smith Jan 21, 2013
Wait so the top speed was tested too? Or is that just the estimate?
John Patten Jan 21, 2013

Can people stop getting into arguments with complete strangers who live hundreds of miles away from you? The racing officials have looked up the rules, I assure you. Otherwise this record would go to someone else. Let the facts stand.
Philippe Miot Jan 21, 2013
This is not an everyday car. It's got a roll cage and is setup for mainly track use. Is there any footage of it going around a corner? Compared to a Veyron (for example) you can use that car everyday. It's comfortable / luxurious, has a degree of usability and was built as an engineering showcase.
Haoliang Li Jan 21, 2013
Want to see it run around the Ring.
Dave Rain Jan 21, 2013

Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
Hahaha and many Italian cars use German parts because they are owned by VW? The Lotus's have Toyota engines. Stop bitching you turds and take your ass-whooping like a man!
Mario Callirgos Jan 21, 2013
This is an all American because that's what America is, the very best from around the world in one place or thing
Mario Callirgos Jan 21, 2013
Well alot of britsh cars are powered by non british engines!! Lotus-Toyota Ascari-BMW. Morgan-BMW. And even koeniggseg used a ford derived 5.0 although completely reworked
Tyler Williamson Jan 21, 2013
No matter where each little part comes from.
Tyler Williamson Jan 21, 2013
I mean you guys can hate all you want but numbers are numbers. And an American tuning house brought together all the parts to make it. Power to them for making it work.
Tyler Williamson Jan 21, 2013
It is a production car...
Chris Huff Jan 21, 2013
It sounds like a plane

chassis of a lotus, which is made in england. when the whole car "venom GT" AKA lotus is made in america then we can bragg. for now good job hennessey. thanks to europe for their constribusion.
Josh Negron Jan 21, 2013
@Michael If its that simple, why doesn't anyone build a million dollar hypercar? You up for it?

Regardless of his cycling, look at what he's done for cancer research and what not. More than I'll ever be able to do.

Hahaha Thibault I'm just joking around. I got that joke from Daniel Tosh. You Frenchies are sensitive. David, at least you know.
Rommel Powell Jan 21, 2013
I guess Lance Armstrong hurt a lot of people by coming out. The cycling world will never be the same (sarcasm) lmfao

I agree completely with Patrick. Who gives a shit if he juiced? It's cycling for God's sake. And he helped so many people as well.
David Gray Jan 21, 2013
Can't argue with Patrick, Thibault. He knows everything there is to know about car culture, so he must be an expert on the world's opinion on drug cheats aswell obviously
Thibault Leroy Jan 21, 2013
Patrick shut the fuck up and get a life
Shane Carroll Jan 21, 2013
@Ricky develop your own 1500hp supercar, then talk
Rommel Powell Jan 21, 2013
@Patrick...EXACTLY. He rides a bike. He can be on crack for all I care.
Ricky Choi Jan 21, 2013
Nice lotus. Should come up with ur own design then talk.
Patrick Schalk Jan 21, 2013
No one cares about Lance Armstrong. No one cares about cycling, that's why it's in France. Who cares if he doped? He's helped more people than anyone who will see this comment.
Pablo Herasme Jan 21, 2013
Yea a Lotus on steriods...
Donte Perino Jan 21, 2013
Don't even start on Lance...
Rommel Powell Jan 21, 2013
And now I like Lance Armstrong even more now that I know he was juicing.
Majed Ameeri Jan 21, 2013
It is like Lance Armstrong
Kwasi Prempeh Jan 21, 2013
If cars were drug tested this would be an obvious candidate. The Venom is an Elise on steroids. Great piece of engineering.
David Lee Jan 24, 2013
I think I just puked a bit.
Austin Sullivan Jan 21, 2013
Agera
Jack Howard Jan 21, 2013
Did this guy just say that he sees Lotus? SMH
Tyler Tarbox Jan 21, 2013
I'd rather have an Agera over this, but got to remember that this costs about half what an Agera or Veyron does
Elias Harb Jan 21, 2013
I see lotus. Ugly car but fast.
Lou Guerrero Jan 21, 2013
Have fun buying new tires then.
Pablo Herasme Jan 21, 2013
Rather have a veyron or Agera
Grant Boshart Jan 21, 2013
I see mclaren in the side air scoop. But that only means that mclaren made one similar to it.
Stephen Tyler Learn Jan 21, 2013
@will that's because a 747 costs millions of dollars
Will Will Jan 21, 2013
I'd take the 747 behind, thanks.
Chad Collins Jan 21, 2013
Does anyone else see an American mclaren?
Colby Church Jan 22, 2013
I can't even remember when I last saw a Lotus. And this definitely has a more striking appearance, even if it is based on the Lotus. This thing looks pure wicked.
Colby Church Jan 22, 2013
Aren't Lotuses supposed to be exotic and sexy though? Because it sure looks like it. No big deal if you ask me, I think they picked the perfect car to modify.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 21, 2013
America... Where every other country is stupid and we're the prime aspect of health. Right. But still the more fast cars the better!
Jackson Michael Jan 21, 2013
Um....ya....no shit
Shane Carroll Jan 21, 2013
@Haoliang wow, can't get nothing past you
Brandon Harp Jan 21, 2013
@jackson because it's a lotus with a 7.0 engine lol
Jackson Michael Jan 21, 2013
Really? A stretched lotus? What in the world would make you think THAT?
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 21, 2013
It's so tiny :) love it
Haoliang Li Jan 21, 2013
Looks just like a stretched Lotus.
Jordan Jackson Jan 21, 2013
I think you can call it more than hype now, lol
Brandon Harp Jan 21, 2013
Better than the veyron, but nowhere near the koenigsegg, I agree with a lot of people, it looks pretty nice, but it's just because it's a hyped up lotus for the most part
Barrak Al-Sarraf Jan 21, 2013
Faster than a Bugatti, and in my opinion even better looking. Well done Americans.
