To maximize the power-to-weight ratio, the 2011 Hennessey Venom GT utilizes
some of the most high-tech racing components available today. This includes the
use of carbon fiber body panels and hybrid wheels constructed of both carbon
fiber and forged-aluminum. Massive Brembo 6-piston alloy brake calipers combine
with lightweight carbon-ceramic rotors to give the Venom GT world-class stopping
power while simultaneously minimizing curb weight and rotational mass.
The 2011 Venom GT has an active suspension system that adjusts ride height
according to varying conditions. The system allows a range of adjustment up to
2.4 inches (6 cm), enabling the driver to raise the Venom GT in order to
navigate items such as a driveway or a parking garage.
aboard the Venom GT are built for purpose, not flash. Lightweight carbon fiber
surrounds an alloy shifter that actuates a Ricardo 6-speed manual gearbox. An AP
Racing multi-disc clutch transfers the engine's copious power while remaining
easy to modulate.
With lateral acceleration well exceeding 1 g-Force, body support for
occupants comes in the form of race-spec, deep-side bucket seats that are
constructed of carbon fiber and covered in fine leather.
