With 93 octane pump gas, the output goes down to a still incredible 900 hp. The Hennessey team made lots of changes to make these figures possible, including upgrades for the heavy duty supercharger belt, the high flow fuel injectors, and the intercooler cooling brick. An air/oil separator system and revised calibration of the transmission also form part of the changes.
To remind eagle-eyed motorists of what’s just pulled up alongside them, there are special Venom 1000 exterior badges. With the full 1000 hp, the Venom 1000 should improve on the stock model’s 3.3-second 0-60 mph sprint, provided the rear tires alone can offer enough traction.
