Hennessey Venom GT Spyder pops in at Cars & Coffee

Our own lensman Drew Phillips caught sight of this at Cars & Coffee in Irvine, California: the 2013 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. This is the first time it's been seen on our shores. The targa version of the Venom GT packs the same 1,200 horsepower as the coupe which also debuted at C&C, one year ago but adds $150,000 to the price.That means you'll need $1.1 million for that wind-in-your-very-rich-hair feeling.

Cheaper than a Veryon. Almost as fast, close enough that it won't make a damn difference on the street.

I like...now if I could only afford it.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this car is based off the Elise / Exige platform.
