The deadly Venom GT released in 2011 will be redesigned in a new incarnation, named the Hennessey Venom GT 2. After coming at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July this year, the guys at Hennessey thought that an upgrade is better. Well, can it be made better?
The car already looks stunning, so the job at hand might be tricky. But the designers have outdone themselves with a modified exterior as well as a powered up engine for awesome race circuit performance. Talking about racing, the Hennessey Venom GT 2 will likely be the star of the show thanks to its carbon fiber body. Also, dihedral hinges for the doors coupled with carbon fiber front air intakes and a new hood with no center arches will make the car more aerodynamic. The sexy double bubble roof will provide additional headroom. That’s a bit like the Peugeot RCZ we’ve seen back in September 2012.
The headlights will be different as well. Apparently, the Lotus Elise headlights will be discontinued and Hennessey came up with a new design for the lighting setup. And they look absolutely stunning.
Big news is also the power up the Venom GT 2 received over its predecessor, the Venom GT. The 7.0-liter V8 will reportedly deliver a mindblowing 1,500 horsepower. This will make the Hennessey Venom GT 2 the most powerful production car ever. This monstrous engine will be likely mated to a 6-speed Ricardo manual gearbox or a 7-speed paddle shifter. The top speed is rumored to hover around 287 mph, making the Venom GT 2 the fastest production car ever. At least until the new 1,600 horsepower Bugatti is out. But those are just rumors…
After the Ferrari FF dressed up as a police car in Beverly Hills, California we have news of a new police supercar, this now ready for the Australian roads. Drivers will definitely think twice about speeding on the outback highways after seeing this beast. The hot rod police car is a modified Ford Falcon GT and it will boast an impressive 536 horsepower, that’s 87 ponies up from the 449 horsepower of the standard version. This will make the Falcon GT the fastest police cruiser ever seen on the Australian roads.
Drivers will get to see the cruiser on New South Wales roads, as the car was specially designed to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the state police. The car comes with standard police features, which include a radar, number plate recognizing technology and computers connected to police database. You know it: everything a normal police cruiser should have. This modified Ford Falcon GT has a price of over $100,000 USD, but it is not sure yet whether the car will be used to catch speeding drivers. It might be used as a show car or as a demonstration vehicle. Inspector John Lipman, commander of the traffic department, said in an interview: ’’It’s about interacting with car enthusiasts and having a similar vehicle to what they would have or what they might aspire to.’’
Nevertheless, the car looks absolutely stunning and should it be used as a police cruiser, the Australian drivers have something to be afraid of.

Great news is coming from the Ingolstadt giant Audi, saying that they are preparing a R10 Diesel supercar to be shown in the near future. After releasing the R8 V12 TDI concept back in 2008 at the Detroit Auto Show, Audi has tweaked with the V12 diesel engines a lot, coming with the Q7 V12 TDI back in 2010. This model is currently the only one in production and it is only available for the European markets.
Unfortunately the R8 V12 TDI was abandoned, but the idea remains. There is currently little information on the likes of the R10 Diesel but it’s safe to say that this supercar won’t feature the V12 TDI found on the Q7 as it is simply too heavy. Most likely, Audi is developing an engine that will fill all the supercar needs, be it in horsepower number or pound per feet of torque. Of course, Audi must design a new transmission for the new supercar, which will definitely be an enhanced version of the Quattro currently available on the R8.
Keep in touch for the newest rumors about the Audi R10!
