The car is the work of Texas tuner John Hennessey, and its maker claims its V8 engine, which is linked to a six-speed manual gearbox, will deliver 'up to 1200bhp'.

Consequently, the Venom GT is quoted as hitting 0-60mph in 2.4sec, 0-100mph in 5.3s, 0-150mph in 8.9s and 0-200mph in 14.3s. It has a top speed of 272mph.

No prices or on sale dates have been announced.
