Mikey Jimenez May 30, 2012
@Mark what does have to do with any thing? Hennessy is a tuning company you retard not a car manufacture, you think you're the only one who brings up the whole Domestic vs. Foreign argument? Well you're not and it gets old so shut up!
Mark Reider May 30, 2012
All I'm saying is that there will never be another gas powered vehicle built to surpass the quality of workmanship, that Bugatti puts out. That's it, I'm not talking top speed. That's a joke, all you have to do is have a light car with a huge amount of power and hope it stays together. The Venom is just that, but why use a foreign car to start. Why not build our own from scratch, because foreign c...

Note to Micah - ageing IS correct, as is aging. Look it up before posting.
Esam Mohammad May 30, 2012
@mark never going to be surpassed ?! That's stupid
Mikey Jimenez May 30, 2012
@Mark it's stretched 2 feet in AMERICA, the suspension is AMERICAN, the engine is AMERICAN... what's your point?
Mark Reider May 30, 2012
Here's the funny part, I wouldn't consider this car to be American. It's built in England, the only part that comes from here is the motor.
Mark Reider May 30, 2012
Maybe some will agree with me. The Veyron is a PRODUCTION vehicle. Designed by Germans and built in a factory in France by Bugatti. The Vemon is a Lotus monocoque and a Corvette motor, put together by a tuning company, and there only making 5.
Micah Lau May 29, 2012
Note to editor: it's aging, not ageing.

@patrick haha that's what i was going to say

Haha there's a whole lot of stoopid on this page.

Das that's what a W is
Das Stig May 29, 2012
it's closer to a v than a w. it's like two v's overlapping.
Cooper Branham May 29, 2012
Veyron is a W16 not V
Cole Rocheleau May 29, 2012
@mark, The veyron will never be surpassed? Wow thats just plain ignorant.
Pablo Herasme May 29, 2012
I've never heard reliability issues on the bugatti
Skye Sativa Mattfeldt May 29, 2012
Best car ever made eh?
Mark Reider May 29, 2012
This car was built to beat the veyron, but not the supersport. I think the V8 motor is kinda maxed out. I'm sure Bugatti can get a lot more power out of there V16. I also question the venoms build quality and reliability. Veyron is the best car ever made and I'm sure will never be surpassed.
Kenneth Williams May 29, 2012
He looks like a woman in the previous pic.

@ Thibault, I know they're the richest but still if it's an easy way to get fast cash from other car companes then why not?
Mark Reider May 30, 2012
Call it the Gayron, I'm not a huge fan either. It's just when a car comes along that is just that good, you have to give it the respect it deserves. I've personally been up close and its an amazing car. If I had the choice though, I would take the Aventador and save some dough.
Mark Reider May 30, 2012
Yes they stopped making the original Veyron, but they still make the car. For 2013, it's the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse.
Thibault Leroy May 30, 2012
@Michael VW is the richest car maker on the planet and around the 10th largest company in the world so i dont think they need other car makers money.
Mikey Jimenez May 30, 2012
@Mark the Gayron is not in production anymore!
Mark Reider May 30, 2012
This Lotus with a tuned up Chevy motor is supposed to do 275. VW will only come back with the veyron, some monstrous edition, just cause it can. Which will go so fast that any other car will probably fall apart trying to beat it.
Dillon Dixon May 29, 2012
Just because VW owns a track with a 5 mile straight. Do you know how much that would cost? That doesn't make them weak, just small. That's like saying Pagani is weak bc they can't build a huge track to test their cars on.
Patrick Joseph May 29, 2012
If your beloved company needs mercy and compassion it just shows how lame of a company it is.
Patrick Joseph May 29, 2012
Don't be silly y'all. Since when is VW the Mother Theresa of carmakers? Why don't they bail out Saab and hand GM a few billions as well since we're at it? If a company doesn't have adequate resources it's their problem. Only the strong survive.
Patrick Schalk May 29, 2012
No Thibault, it's because they are scared.
Michael Kozlowski May 29, 2012
@ Thibault, Actually If I were VW I'd have the facility open to any company that wants to max out their car, just charge them a fee for the day to do it. They could make a good bit charging companies to come and test their cars top speed.
Thibault Leroy May 29, 2012
why would they let them go on their track? They want to keep the record and you would do the same thing if you were them so stop being jealous
Kenneth Williams May 29, 2012
We need a huge test track like that of VW here in the states and keep them out.
Kevin Rehbock May 29, 2012
Sad but true, Brian. There aren't very many places in the world where you can go that fast safely. SSC broke the speed record on a track in West Virginia and went almost 260 mph outside Las Vegas unofficially on a test run so I don't know what would stop HPE from going to the same track.
Mikey Jimenez May 29, 2012
PAC MAN!! Woot woot, Timothy Bradley is just a stepping stone!
Antonio Borja May 29, 2012
true brian. I can't like a champ who's scared to prove itself and dodges the main challenger

@Brian I officially worship your comment.

@Brady o so you know how fast this goes? so u must have superpowers or something so tell me about my future....
Antonio Borja May 29, 2012
I wanna see them race already. that'll be the day. it's like mayweather vs pacman. who's who?
Brady Jacoby May 29, 2012
This will walk all over the Bugatti. Idc how many turbos it has. 2 90mm turbos is a Lot more than 4 40mm turbos. That's V8 power.
Miles Drinkwater May 30, 2012
That lana bird looks a bit ruff
Stan Mitchell May 30, 2012
These (rear) tires are actually 335's. The widest ever on a production car are, big shocker, the Bugatti Veyron SS's at 365 mm.
Josh Knight May 30, 2012
He's such a woman
Da Stig May 30, 2012
It's not based on it's practically a pimped out version done by another company kinda like those saleen mustang things.
Mikey Jimenez May 30, 2012
Dude shut up we get it haha, haters gonna hate!
Mark Reider May 30, 2012
Must be a lotus, there built in England!
Mark Reider May 29, 2012
Hennessey takes cars and tunes them up. They took a lotus frame, tweaked the body pannels and all the other crap. Then slapped a modified corvette motor in it. Does that make it a Lotus or a Chevy. Certainly not a production car!
Brandon Whybrew May 29, 2012
he doesn't look handicap to me. should have been towed. says no parking on the ground
Stan Mitchell May 29, 2012
I guess they just don't look very wide from this picture pretty far away.
Christo Savaides May 29, 2012
@Stan - Are we looking at the same tires? Cause those are massive.
Stan Mitchell May 29, 2012
Those tires need to be meatier.
Trent Bourgeois May 29, 2012
If you watch the video on YouTube of them making it. Henn. Said this car is "based off the exgie but not really because it only has 10 percent of they orininal parts/car in it."
John Serely May 29, 2012
Ok Aaron. You don't seem to know what "based off of" means, so I'll tell you. When something is based off of something else, it uses parts of it or something along those lines, but the changes it So the venom is based off of a lotus, cuz parts r used
John Serely May 29, 2012
@aaron do you know what "based off of" means? Read you comment again.
Aaron Crisp May 29, 2012
How is it based off of a Lotus? They use a Lotus frame... Doesn't mean the cars a full blown Lotus.
Logan LeMonnier May 29, 2012
Haha I love this guy
uptown May 29, 2012
its based off the exige -.-
Bull Dogone May 29, 2012
I know he's rich and famous and the cars' rare but did anyone plan for an actual license plate bring attached to it? Paper tag tapes to the back window will only last for so long, legally. Just a thought 'cause I don't see an attach point back there.
Abraham Mendoza May 29, 2012
It's a car based off a Elise with a strengthened, lengthened, widened body work fitted with a powerful engine.
Alex Bouckley May 29, 2012
No it's not a kit for the Elise. It's a heavily modified Elise. I don't think Hennesey would sell a $1,050,000 kit
Reid Huff May 29, 2012
You know why it looks like one right? Its because it's actually based on one.
Antonio Borja May 29, 2012
great looking car *
Antonio Borja May 29, 2012
people hate and say it looks like a lotus. but a lotus is a grey looking cr to start. plus it's longer and a beast. haters will hate. this is the greatest car ever built
americanmuscle May 29, 2012
good for him buying American. most celebs wouldbuya buggati veyron but why the venom gt is better in every way and much cheaper

Oh man that is a purse!

Ian Barger May 29, 2012

Matt Sutton May 29, 2012
Even more so than mick jagger? Its a close race. But they both have had a major impact on culture. Id drink tequila with both of them.

I know he'll give the car a shakedown. I just hope he doesn't go through a building.
Dale Schroeder May 29, 2012
I give it two months before we see a follow up article detailing how he wrecked this car after the first time he decides to see what it can really do.

Patrick Joseph May 29, 2012
That's rude but for some reason I like the idea. That would be hilarious.
Patrick Schalk May 29, 2012
Those tires are like 335s or something like that. I'd tell her to look into those two holes in the back and fire it up to see if I could blow her face off.
Brandon Lidy May 29, 2012
Rear tires are 300 something's I think. Fat ass things
