Matt Farah Drives the Hennessey Venom GT

Video

"Supermodel Sex Fun" is how everyone's favorite chrome-domed automotive video journalist describes the Lotus-based supercar.

John Hennessey's Venom GT is one supercar sure to grab attention wherever it goes. The 1,200-horsepower monster of a machine takes its inspiration from the iconic Shelby Cobra, built for super-power and light weight. Based on the Lotus Elise and taking its motivation from a modified twin-turbo LS9 V8 engine, it costs just over one million dollars and can (in theory at least) reach a top speed of 272 mph.

Matt Farah's first spin in the Venom GT is a pretty memorable experience to say the least. "Lots of torque, tons of torque!" he initially exclaims. "It's about power to weight, that's it." Farah finishes his ride by saying that the Venom GT is "Supermodel sex, that's the kind of fun this thing is." Check out his epic ride in the clip below.
