New hi-res photos with the Bugatti Veyron fighter, the 2011 Hennessey Venom GT have been released by the Texas based company.

Available with three output levels, 725 HP, 1000 HP and 1200 HP which are based on modified versions of the Corvette ZR1 sourced 6.2-litre LS9 V8 engine, the 2011 Hennessey Venom GT uses a Lotus Elise chassis and has a starting price tag of around 600,000 USD.

Accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h takes 2.9 seconds, or 7 seconds when accelerating from 0 to 200 Km/h and all we can say is that we would love to see a comparison test against the Veyron.

Hennessey press release :

SEALY, TEXAS & SILVERSTONE, ENGLAND, June 14, 2010 - Hennessey Performance is proud to announce the delivery of the company's first production-ready Venom GT supercar. Having left its UK production facility, the Chassis Number 01 Venom GT is headed to the UAE where it is to be delivered to its new owner by Hennessey's exclusive Middle Eastdistributor, Al DiMora of DiMora Motorcar.

"This is the fulfillment of a dream that I have had since I was a kid", says company founder, John Hennessey. "But it is also just the beginningas we

begin to demonstrate the performance capabilities of the Venom GTin the near future".

The top tier model, the first production Venom is powered by a twin turbocharged Chevrolet LS-series aluminum V8 producing 1,200 hp and 1,135 lb-ft torque mated to a 6-speed Ricardo manual transaxle (the sameas found in the Ford GT). Boasting a dry weight of just 2,548 lbs and acurb weight of 2,685 lbs with a full tank of fuel, the car delivers on its promise of an astounding power-to-weight ratio.

Harnessing this power is a chassis that is a far cry from the Lotus Elise which it's derived. Aside from reusing the windshield, doors, roof, floor, dash and various trim components, the Venom GT's design andconstruction has been engineered from the ground up for a truly unique supercar. An all-new front and rear space frame and suspension is cloaked in a new carbon fiber body, sporting an adjustable rear wing forexceptional high-speed stability.

Production levels of the Venom GT range from the base 725 hp supercharged LS9 V8 unveiled in the original prototype car to 1,000 hp and 1,200 hp twin turbo V8 variants. Each vehicle is painted and its interior crafted to each owner's specification, offering the opportunityfor one-off exclusivity.

Each Venom GT is built in Silverstone, England, with power plants sourced from HPE's Texas headquarters. Available in both left and right-hand drive configuration, the Venom GT is an international supercar fusing the power and emotion of American V8 muscle with the refinement of Britain's renowned racing heritage.
