HENNESSEY VENOM GT SPYDER (WORLD FASTEST EDITION) white in 1:18 scale by AUTOart
This high-end composite model is hand painted and polished to a beautiful finish. The undercarriage, suspension, brakes, and exhaust are nicely replicated. Opening doors, hood, trunk and amazing engine detail.
AUTOart's latest innovation in composite and diecast models, or exquisitely crafted replicas made from a hybrid of different materials that have been selected and engineered to produce both the supreme finish detail and high value our collectors demand. Model making will never be the same. In composite models, AUTOart pairs a die-cast interior with a newly developed injection Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), a thermoplastic polymer with special blend of different materials for reinforcement of the body, utilizing the benefits of both materials to create the highest quality models our company has ever produced. Injection ABS composite material has shown itself to be an ideal material to form the body of a model car. Compared to our old body material, die-cast zinc, injected-ABS composite material surfaces, with correct formulation, are smoother and the bodylines and creases are sharper. The openings for vents and holes are also reproduced more cleanly, and the panels can be much thinner when rendered in ABS composite material than in zinc alloy. That makes the finished body closer to the true scale gauge of real car bodies.
Hennessey Performance World Fastest Edition Venom GT’s top speed run of 270.4 mph (434 km/h), which was set at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in February, 2014. The World’s Fastest Edition (WFE) also alludes to the Venom’s 0-300 km/h Guinness World Record. The special livery package includes a body in white with red and blue stripes, which incorporates the colours of the American flag—the same flag that the car broke 270 mph on the Space Shuttle runway. The Venom GT generates its incredible speed from a simple formula: huge power, minimal weight. Its 7.0-liter twin-turbo V8 makes 1244 bhp and with only 2743 lb. to accelerate (that’s 1244 kg, hitting that magic 1 bhp/kg mark), the Venom GT is not only the fastest series-produced road car; it’s also the quickest. It holds the Guinness World Record for standing-start acceleration, rocketing from rest to 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 13.63 seconds. Lightweight aluminium construction, carbon-fibre bodywork and featherweight carbon-ceramic brakes all make this extraordinary power/weight ratio possible.
