The Hennessey Venom GT is a hyper car made by Hennessey Performance and it is among one of the fastest vehicles in the Asphalt series. The Hennessey Venom GT is one of the few cars in the Asphalt series that use a Chevrolet engine.
The Hennessey Venom GT is a limited-production supercar made by Hennessey Performance and built on a heavily-modified Lotus Exige chassis. The higher performance version of the Venom GT is the Hennessey Venom F5. The purpose of the Venom GT is to break the world record for the highest speed in any regular production land vehicle (427.6 km/h 265.7 mph). Unfortunately, it did not make the record in 2013 as the run was done in a single direction and only 29 Venom GTs were produced in the world. It did, however, beat it in 2014 with a speed of 270.49 mph / 435.31 km/h, but this was only in one direction and did not qualify for a Guinness World Record.
The Hennessey Venom GT first appeared in the June 2014 update of the game. Prior to the Hennessey Venom GT Cup, the Venom GT first appeared as an AI racer in the Independence Day Cup (set in Nevada) and Class S Cup (set in The London Eye). After the completion of the first Hennessey Venom GT Cup, it became available to purchase. It has a starting rank of 1555, a maximum rank of 1674 and a final rank of 1751 (the latter two being shared with the SSC Ultimate Aero XT).
Once the most powerful car in the game, the Hennessey Venom GT is now merely the best car in the Hotshot Class S bracket. The Venom GT has a high top speed (Though not as good as it seems, due to a very low Speed Mod) as well as decent acceleration and handling, but it suffers from a very weak Nitro boost and bad Nitro efficiency, which can mean serious trouble if it runs out of Nitro while accelerating. Due to its high starting rank, the Venom GT has a low Tuning Kit bonus.
There is no reason whatsoever to use the Hennessey Venom GT in any other kind of event because it lacks any particular strength, and in Multiplayer, it's very weak in what matters most, meaning it can struggle to beat weaker cars with stronger Nitro (As they can wreck a Venom GT with ease). Cars such as the McLaren 675LT outclass the Venom GT in every possible way while having much lower costs, and the Koenigsegg One:1 also outperforms it while not costing much more.
All in all, the Hennessey Venom GT isn't a recommended car to buy. However, it can be a decent car to use in Career mode, as in most Class-S races, cars such as the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse, Koenigsegg Agera R, and Mercedes-Benz Silver Lightning have a lower MAX rank than the Venom GT.
The Hennessey Venom GT costs 2,250,000 ( 3,000,000 before the Winter update) to purchase and 2,474,350 to max out. Costing 4,724,350 overall, the Hennessey Venom GT is the most expensive car in the game that has an exclusive pre-Season 9 event.
