Hennessey Venom GT Front Three Quarter
The tried and true 0-60 mph test is so 2010 -- at least to the Hennessey Venom GT it is. For more than a year, Hennessey Performance has teased us with its latest creation, which is essentially a Lotus Elise/Exige body modified to handle the Chevy LS9 engine (from the Corvette ZR1) with a max output of 1,200 hp.

2011 Lotus Elise SC Final Edition Front
With production of Toyota’s 2ZZ four-cylinder engine coming to an end, and with the smart airbag exemption also about to expire, 2011 will be the last year for the Lotus Elise and Exige in North America. Lotus is giving the two models one last hurrah, releasing three extremely limited special editions, including the Elise SC Final Edition, Exige Matte Black Final Edition, and Exige S260 Final Edition.

  • Malaysian automaker Proton, which bought Lotus in 1996, is finally receiving help from Lotus to develop a range of cars; a small city car shown at the Paris Motor Show last fall will be one of the cars shared by the two companies. Lotus needs a city car to help it meet new, more stringent fuel consumption regulations, just like Aston Martin needs the Toyota iQ-based Cygnet.
