The Hennessey Venom GT (2012) is an updated model of the 2011 Venom GT that entered production in 2012 for the 2013 model year. A Spyder variant was also developed by Hennessey.

The Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1-sourced LS9 engine had its displacement bumped to 7.0L from 6.2L, increasing the power output to 1,244bhp. It features the same Ricardo 6-speed manual transmission as the Ford GT and other Venom GT models.

Hennessey claims the 2012 Venom GT is capable of hitting 278 mph (447 km/h) but has failed to reach it in its first attempt in which it managed to do 266 mph (427 km/h). However, it set a world record for 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) and 0-200 mph (0-322 km/h) acceleration run. In February 2014, the Venom GT managed to record a top speed of 270 mph (435 km/h).

Need for Speed: Rivals

The Hennessey Venom GT appears in Need for Speed: Rivals as an RCPD unit. It was revealed to be in-game after the Career Progression trailer was shown off at the 2013 Eurogamer Expo.

It can be made available for the RCPD in either a Patrol, Undercover or Enforcer specification upon the player completing the associated Rank 20 assignment.
