Hennessey Venom GT

When people talk about the world most powerful car you may think Bugatti, but the worlds most powerful convertible is the Hennessey Venom GT. In fact the Bugatti Veyron takes 24.2 seconds to read 200 mph while the Venom GT takes only 15.3. The Venom GT is based off of a Lotus Elise/Exige. Here is a quote taken directly from the Venom GT's website (
The Hennessey Venom GT design is based on the Lotus Elise / Exige. The Venom GT is created from a base Lotus Elise / Exige and utilizes components including but not limited to the roof, doors, side glass, windscreen, dash, cockpit, floorpan, HVAC system, wiper and head lamps. Hennessey Performance and the Venom GT are not associated with Lotus Cars.
The price of a Venom GT is $600,000 for the 750 horsepower version, but if you want the fast 1,200 horsepower version it will cost you 1 million dollars. For this price though you can guarantee that you will have one unique car. There is a production limit of 10 per year and only 6 have been made so fat (1 of which being a convertible). Of these cars some of the owners include Jay Lenno and Steven Tyler (has the convertible). This is a ridiculously fast car, but still nice enough to take to the beach with the top down.
