THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Carroll Shelby proved years ago that Texans like to do things in a big way, and Houston-based Hennessey Motorsports is no exception. The HMS Viper engine development has outpaced tire technology with its ever-increasing V10 power output and pushed the outer limits of performance sanity with their turn-key Vipers. The comprehensive Hennessey Venom 600 package gives the Viper RT/10 a bump in bore and stroke of .060 and .80 inches respectively for an increase in displacement to a whopping 520ci. Add a 5140 steel crankshaft, 4340 billet-steel connecting rods, 10.0:1 compression forged aluminum pistons and a roller/ rocker camshaft, and the result is a pavement-shredding 602 horsepower with 630 ft. lbs. of torque, all of it handled by a 6-speed manual transmission and an upgraded Positraction rear end. Capped with a hard top, the car includes a full soft top and cockpit cover, AM/FM cassette, air conditioning and 5-point safety harnesses. In Motor Trend's words, "this unique Viper is "raw, almost unnerving, and completely glorious."

This particular beast is the first Venom 600 produced by Hennessey, proudly wearing a badge on the center console showing the serial number 00-01, as well as being the fastest production car ever tested by Motor Trend. During Motor Trend's testing of the car, it clocked a tire scorching 0-60 time of only 3.4 seconds. With that said, in search of more power, the car was brought to West Coast Viper where it was further enhanced with the addition of a host of performance upgrades, including a Paxton Supercharger, HRE wheels, StopTech brakes and lowered suspension, along with a custom black leather interior. In total, this Viper is said to have well over $100,000 invested and to be capable of producing over 1,000 horsepower! At the time of cataloging, the odometer reading was that of only 6,691 miles. Prior to arriving at the auction, the car received a fresh service and now awaits anyone brave enough to strap into the cockpit.
