Hennessey Venom GT: Now With More Power!

Hennessey-Venom-GT-2

The Hennessey Venom GT is not exactly lacking in the power department. With 1,244 hp, the twin turbocharged 7.0L LS2 V8 is enough to propel the Venom GT to an official recorded speed of 270 mph (435 kph). However, the boys over at Hennessey seem to think that 1,244 hp isn’t enough and have announced that they will up the ante to the tune of 1,451 hp, and they are bringing it with them to this year’s SEMA show.

Porsche is a brand that is surrounded by fans that expect a connected driver’s experience more than any other brand. However, due to the market trends and strict regulations, Porsche has been making some engineering choices which seem to cater to everyone but the driving enthusiast. With the manual transmission gone from pretty much every Porsche 911 model except the Base and S models, and NA engines only on the GT models, the purists are far from happy. Luckily, Porsche has listened and are developing a 911 just to rectify that problem.

Italian cars seem to have a flair to them that no other cars posses. For decades, people have lusted over the gorgeous, and more often than not outrageous, cars that were coming out of Italy. Looking through the history book, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Lancia, and even Fiat all have a back catalogue of lust worthy automobiles to be proud of. Pagani is the newest of the Italian car companies, but that doesn’t mean that they have anything to be ashamed of. The Pagani Zonda and the Pagani Huayra are cars that are as breathtaking to look at, as they are to drive.

BMW M2

BMW’s model line up has grown quite extensively, both in the number of models and the physical size of the cars. BMW’s bread and butter, the 3-series, has grown so much in recent years that there was enough space to introduce a smaller model positioned beneath it. The 1 and 2 series respectively fill that small car gap in the line up. The last generation 1-series even had a proper M model, the 1M, and it was a magical recipe. So much so that BMW will release it’s direct successor, the M2, in a couple of weeks.
