Hennessey is taking the 2015 Mustang GT and launching it across the performance bows of the Dodge Challenger Hellcat and Corvette Z06. Grab the popcorn, 'cus this is gonna be good.
With one quick look at the Hennessey Venom GT on a dyno, the age old saying “everything is bigger in Texas” couldn’t ring more true. Not just ‘cause the 270.49 mph, world record holding, Venom GT puts down a subtle 1244 brake horsepower and 1155 ft-lb of torque but also because of that massive flame it throws. The savage power coming from the modified 7.0 liter, twin Precision ball bearing turbo, LSX mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox is music to any automotive enthusiast’s ears.
While on location at the Hennessey Performance Engineering facility in Sealy, TX, for the event known as TX2K, the weather simply wouldn’t cooperate, so we were forced to pack up and entertain ourselves elsewhere. With our britches drenched, the #TeamRevv gear stashed in the transport and our sights set on the streets of Houston, Revvolution president Ryan Randels decided we had nothing else to lose and struck up a quick conversation with TX2K organizer, Peter Blach. Within a few moments, Peter worked his power of persuasion and convinced John Hennessey, the owner of the American tuning powerhouse, to grant us a brief thirty minutes with his latest creation.
