Creative Sports Cars - Venom GTE

Post by AllingtonGT » Sun Dec 18, 2016 11:53 am

In researching alternative V6 engines came across Creative Sports Cars in Warrington who use Jags as donors for their chassis/body 'kits'.

They have drawings of a GTE which I'd not seen before. Not seen anything previously so list out of interest. If it's been noted before please merge:

The Venom ( and I'm sure the name is registered to someone else already ) looks like a Dodge Viper with a shed on top.
And Mike, yes, I was wondering about that wide SE5 of Phil Morley ...

The naming of the Sierra made by Dutton ended in a Court case, so I wonder if this might head the same way? They may argue their Venom GT isn't a Hennessey Venom GT - that's American, but may be Aston has something to say in the UK?

That's more BMW Z3 M Roadster in my eyes not GTE, no rising bottom line to rear windows


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

The GTE sportback is definitely E36/8 (Z3 coupe) inspired. The GTC looks TVR ish from the back and the roadster looks like a Ginetta G60!

The Venom was originally a Dodge Viper copy by Auto Speciali Ltd. with Mk3 Granada mechanicals.

"Hennessey Performance (HPE) has built the last word in hypercars: the 1244-bhp Venom GT, an aluminum-chassis, carbon-bodied machine whose 7.0-liter twin-turbo aluminum-block V-8 will obliterate any other production car from 50 to well over 250 mph. The Venom GT, whose mid-longitudinal dry-sump powerplant drives massive 345/30R-20 rear tires, holds the Guinness World Record for 0-300 km/h (186 mph) acceleration, accomplishing the feat in just 13.63 seconds. On February 14, 2014, the Hennessey Venom GT set a new world speed record for 2-seat sports cars by reaching a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h). The run was performed at the Kennedy Space Center on the 3.2-mile Space Shuttle landing runway. Brian Smith, Director of Miller Motorsport, experienced race driver and a former Michelin tire test engineer, drove the Venom GT to its record speed."

Has anyone looked at their build video? Did you see the rear subframe fitted and the front bolt sitting in a nice little undrained cavity just waiting for some salty road water to fill it up?
