It’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 427 cu in 7.0-liter LS7 V8, courtesy of GM, and mated to the same six-speed manual found in the previous Ford GT. Total output is a staggering 1,244 hp. Clearly this isn’t a 2010 Lotus Elise as the Autotrader.com ad claims. But it is based off the same chassis. This is a Hennessey Venom GT that’s now up for sale on the popular website with an asking price of $1,250,000. Apparently you can’t select a Venom GT on Autotrader as a selling option, or anywhere else for that matter.
Reason is that it’s not a series production car; it has to legally be sold as a Lotus. Choice Auto Sales of Murrysville, Pennsylvania is offering the car and states this particular Venom GT is chassis number 9 out of 9. They also claim it’s the only one painted white and that it was the only privately owned vehicle to ever be displayed on the Concept Greens at Pebble Beach. Actually, that sounds very familiar. That's because this is the same Venom GT with only 745 miles on its clock we showed you last June when it was up for auction at Pebble Beach. It's then estimated value was between $700,000-$900,000. Apparently it's up for sale again with the hope of making a profit.
