Call it a homemade Hennessey Venom GT of sorts.
Leave it to a somewhat nutso, BMW V10-crazed Swedish guy to take on a project like this.
We immediately liked him. Around a year ago, “JohanZ” decided to transplant the V10 from a donor E60 M5 into a Lotus Exige. It was a lot harder to do than you’d imagine. Initially, that V10 didn’t fit into the Exige, so a wheelbase extension was required. If that reminds you of a certain Hennessey Venom GT, then you’re correct.
That Bugatti Veyron beater utilizes the same basic formula, only it’s powered by a supercharged Corvette V8 with more than 1,200 hp.
What’s different about these two mutants is that one is meant purely for straight line speed while the other has twisty track credentials. By: Carbuzz
