Hennessey Venom GT2 Gets 1500 horsepower

I'm not the only one that's ever wondered if you can actually have to much power in a streetcar. I think the guys at Hennessey might just answered the question of can you have too much power with the new Venom GT2. This car has over 1500 hp and offers a power to weight ratio of 1+ bhp per kilogram.

We can assume some of his vehicle is still based on the Lotus Elise like the original Venom GT was. We can see that the new GT2 has different headlights utilizing LED bulbs. The star the show on this vehicle is a massive 7.0-liter twin turbo V8 engine.

The new car is also available with a seven-speed paddle shift transmission, though a manual is still available. We don't have any estimated performance specs, but considering how impressive the original was, adding even more power should make this one seriously fast and likely difficult to control streetcar.
