Re: The Essential GT Cars List

Feb 7, 2013

At MaxCoolNascar:  Yeah baby'!

 

Somebody here in the KC area has one of these -- I get the opportunity to drool on the way to work on occasion.  While doing a road trip to FL last summer I passed, then was passed by, one of the Hennesy tuned Velociraptor versions on I-64 in western IL.  I was wondering what kind of car he had in the racing trailer it was pulling....

If its a video game and doesn't require a steering wheel, is it worth my time?

@smfoundyou

 

My first NEW car was a 1989 Ford Mustang LX, Oxford White with a red cloth interior.  While I miss this car, I do NOT miss replacing the tires every 30K miles at $205 a pop, nor the $680 every six months in insurance (1989 dollars) for a driver with a clean driving record in their late 20's.

 

And before you go "Yeah, but its not a GT,"  it was the hatchback with the 5.0 in it.  I have some stories to tell from that car -- first car to get airborne, first car to get up on two wheels, first car to run at over 135mph for over 3 miles, etc.  (none of these on the same drive though) The best 30 months of driving I ever had!

 

The biggest difference from the GT was the aerodynamics.  You could actually see out the back window when backing because the spoiler wasn't so high, and since it was lighter, it would beat the GT at a standing start.  I didn't notice the difference in handling until it got over 100mph, and then the GT was a little less of an armful.

 

Oh, yeah -- we have over 2 feet of snow on the ground right now, so it would be staying in the garage for a couple of weeks right now.

If its a video game and doesn't require a steering wheel, is it worth my time?

The Hennessey Venom GT:

 

Manufacturer: Hennessey Motorsports

United States

Super Car Classification

2012/2013

Available in spyder and coupe.

This car envisions everything to the extreme. From a Highly modified LS7 block (twin turbocharged), to the all custom frame and suspension, this car leave nothing to reserve. With a Whopping 1200+hp and 1150 Torque, it is estimated to reach a top speed of over 274mph... and is completely street legal in all 50.

This Hennessey Venom took the Guinness World Record for the fastest Production car to reach 300 KPH, in January.

Wait, the Hennessey Venom GT is a production car? I didn't think kit cars could be classified as production cars...

Lots of others have asked the same question, maybe a "record" number of times. Smiley Very Happy

Maybe my definition of "Kit" car is wrong and somebody can clarify better, but when I think of a kit car, I think of the enthusiast who spends weekends in the garage assembling a replica of say a Shelby Cobra for example.  When the car is complete, it's still just a replica.

Hennessy is an auto builder.  They may start with an existing vehicle, in the case of the Venom GT it's a Lotus, or in the case of the Velociraptor, an Ford F-150 Raptor, but in the end it becomes something new and is titled and licensed as a car built by Hennessy.  The same thing RUF does with Porsches.  Also they are building more than just one, which is part of it.  Isn't there a minimum number (at least in the US) that needs to be built to qualify legally as a production car?  Not sure of the number off hand, but seem to recall it's a supprisingly low number.

There are certain numbers to meet specific racing classifications, including homologous numbers, but I don't know what is used to classify a car as just a production car or model.
