It is interesting to find out how many popular entertainers are car nuts that choose to drive some of the most outrageous vehicles known to man. One particular vehicle and entertainment figure that makes the word ‘outrageous’ sound like an understatement is the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder and Steven Tyler. Together these two seem like a match made in Heaven considering their ‘Crazy’ aptitude. After all, 1,244 horsepower and Aerosmith go hand in hand like peanut butter and jelly.

It seems last year Steven Tyler and John Hennessey crossed paths and out came Steven’s request for his very own Venom GT Spyder. With such an order from the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Hennessey and his team were sure to deliver on this request.

This particular build would involve making some structural changes to fit the removable top for the very first Venom GT Spyder. With a removable top, the structural changes would add on about 30 pounds. John and his team decided to add a bit more power to the equation to compensate, upping the power to a total of 1,244 horsepower.

The time has come that Steven Tyler takes delivery of the very first Venom GT Spyder, which will be 1 of a total of 5 fine examples of this $1.1 million Bugatti Veyron killer. You can say, this is truly a ‘Sweet Emotion’ or a ‘Livin’ on the Edge’ moment, depending on the position of the throttle of this beast-of-a-car.
