First Hennessey Venom GT Spyder Goes To Aerosmith Frontman Steven Tyler

Rocker Steven Tyler is the first lucky customer of the Venom GT Spyder by Hennessey Performance.

John Hennessey commented, “Steven came to us and asked if we could build his Venom GT as a roadster.” Hennessey continues, “We had to make a few structural changes to our integrated rollcage in order to be able to fit the removable top.”

Because of structural changes, the kerbweight is now 1,244 kg and to maintain one horsepower-per-one-kilogramme power to weight, the power on the mid-mounted, twin-turbo 6.2-litre V8 was increased from 1200hp to 1244hp.

0-60mph comes in just 2.5 seconds and 0-200mph in an impressive 15.3 seconds. Venom GT Spyder is priced from around £700,000.
