If you were wanting to get your hands on a Hennessey Venom GT, then we have a bad news for you. The hyper car has formally exited production. However, if you were present at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, there was a small chance you might get your hands on one still.
Steven Tyler, the American singer-songwriter’s 2012 HPE Venom GT Spyder, with its 1,244 hp 7.0-liter LS7 V8 engine, reached the auction block, ended up in all black whatever. It’s number five of twelve developed units, and the first of the Spyder versions to go into production.
The 2012 Venom GT was purchased without any reserve, which didn’t stop it from amassing a lofty amount. The hammer went down to have the Venom GT out the door at a tremendous $800,000. Every of these dollars went to charity.
Janie’s Found, created by Tyler and in collaboration with Youth Villages, has a goal to help recover women that have been mistreated and suffered trauma from toxic circumstances.
The new owner has obtained one hell of a hellish ride, and helped out an amazing cause. We are pleased to say that a car has brought win-win situation.
