Supercars and hypercars are undeniably exotic and alluring that anyone can only dream of owning. However, we still have a strong penchant for pony cars. Specifically, we’re talking about American muscle machines from Chevrolet, Dodge, Pontiac, and others. Thus, we can’t help but scream like the fanboys we are as Hennessey Performance throws another insane automobile our way. The 2020 Hennessey GT500 Venom 1200 is a Mustang on steroids.

To start off, the 2020 Ford Mustang GT500 is currently not yet officially available for consumers. Nevertheless, Hennesey Performance certainly knows how to pull some strings to be able to tune a yet-to-be-released ride. Even form a glance, it’s clear that the GT500 Venom 1200 is packing serious firepower. If you ever meet one on the highway, think twice before you challenge it to a race. Those foolish enough will soon learn the hard way.

By default, the stock version is hardly a pushover at 760 horsepower. Yet, with a little expert tuning from Hennesey Performance, it quickly goes beyond that. The upgrade package is a comprehensive collection of tweaks that involve the exhaust system, engine, and transmission.

This gives a massive performance boost, which now goes up to 1,200 horsepower with 1,000 lb-ft of torque. This might be a pony car, but the venomous emblem on the front is a fair warning to potential rivals. Meanwhile, the interiors likewise get a makeover with Hennessey badging. The Hennessey GT500 Venom 1200 is shaping up to be one of our favorite pony cars. That is probably until a new one comes along in the future.
