Hennessey Venom GT Chassis #03: Now in Red

Chassis number one was painted silver and while we don't know what the second car was painted, Hennessey has just released new pictures of their latest Venom GT, chassis number three. Based off a Lotus Elise chassis, the 1,200 hp car uses a version of the Corvette's 6.2-liter LS9 V8 that's mated to a six-speed Ricardo transmission. Total weight comes in at less than 3,000 lbs and the base price is more than $600,000.

The Texas-based tuner, or shall we now call them supercar builder, has only built three units so far. While we don't know if there's a specific production run already set, it's all but guaranteed the Venom GT will be a force to be reckoned with on the track. Enjoy the photos.
