John Hennessey Discusses His Masterpiece: The Venom GT

Interview

It takes a bit of Texas madness to dethrone a car like the Bugatti Veyron.

John Hennessey is an awesome guy. Not only is he from Texas, but he also has a thing for horsepower, and lots of it. Along with his world-renowned aftermarket kits for a variety of sedans, coupes, SUVs and supercars, Hennessey Performance is also the creator of the just maddening Venom GT. Sure, its platform origins may come from a Lotus, but Hennessey and crew have turned it into something else entirely. That is, it is a Bugatti Veyron SS killer.

What’s more, the Venom GT is void of things like a dual-clutch gearbox and other computer-assisted elements; it's a pure analog machine. It also happens to go faster than 270 mph. So how does the man himself work his magic? Check out the video ahead as Hennessey sits down with Mike Spinelli for a tell-all interview.
