Exclusive US and Middle East Hennessey dealer DiMora Motorcar has kindly sent us some more images of the Hennessey Venom GT Prototype in matt black.

We’ve also included the specifications for the 2011 Hennessey Venom GT, as the performance figures and power outputs for this car are off the charts.

While it might look somewhat similar in form to the Lotus Elise from which it’s derived, that’s about where the similarities end. This is a bespoke piece of engineering, which has been designed from the ground up to create a truly unique supercar with devastating performance credentials.

The Venom GT is built in Silverstone, England, with engines sourced from Hennessey’s headquarters in Texas, USA.
