Steven Tyler’s 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder shows up for testing

The 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder which American Idol judge and Aerosmith star Steven Tyler had ordered last month for a custom-built from Hennessey Performance, is finally ready to roll. The Hennessey team was recently seen dyno testing the car in Sealy, Texas. The car touted to be $1.1 million is built off a modified Lotus Elise/Exige chassis. It runs on a General Motors 6.2 liter twin-turbocharged sequential Multi-Port Electronic Fuel Injection V8 engine. The car’s top speed is 260 mph, and it will sprint from 0-60 mph in just 2.5 seconds and 0-200 in 15.3 seconds.

The Hennessey Venom GT Spyder jumps to a 1,155 lb of torque when set at 1,200 horsepower and it has additional two setting options of 800 hp and 1,000 hp. The car weighs about 2,685 lbs and has a carbon fiber composite body.
