Video: Matt Farah drives the Hennessey Venom GT

Hennessey Venom GT

Few cars in the world are as brutally powerful as the Hennessey Venom GT. 1,200 horsepower, 0-60 in 2.5 seconds, 0-200 mph in 15.3 seconds (8.9 seconds faster than a Bugatti Veyron). Depending on your skill level, this car can be an instrument of speed, or an instrument of death. So it seems fitting that Matt Farah should take one for a spin.

The former host of ‘The Smoking Tire’, and former co-host of ‘The Car Show’, Farah is known for his fearless antics, and witty commentary. In this pilot episode for his new web-show ‘Tuned’, Matt talks to John Hennessey about the development of his insane supercar, then he takes one for a spin. Watch the video and you’ll actually see the fear in Farah’s eyes as the twin-turbos on the Venom’s 427 kick in. It’s hilarious. ‘Supermodel Sex’ indeed.

Wonder if he cried afterward?
