    Actually...the Sport Exige is much lighter; 1900lbs! Though, uses a GM V6 outputting around 400hp.

    Though, must say, for the specs given, I'm not impressed with the Venom GT because it just seems like a lightweight car built for straight line performance; doesn't seem like heavy emphasis on the suspension.

    I was thinking the same thing. Did they stretch an elise and throw an ls1 in it?

    I didn't know it had an LS1; but from the description it sounds like it's just a stretched Elise and uses many Elise parts.

    I'm not sure how it compares to the Sport Exige but the design of the Sport Exige sounds impressive:

    Though, the Sport Exige is not available so the Hennessey would be the closes thing you can get.

    Not an LS1. A variant, but much stouter variant.
