2016 Hennessey Venom GT Exterior
The exterior design of the new 2016 Hennessey Venom GT hasn’t changed much compared to the vehicle it replaces. Even though there are no spy photos that witness this statement, it appears that the company won’t change vehicle’s body structure for the 2016 model year. Even the wing and bumper will remain the same. Most of you will agree that it is not a bad news as all, since the Venom GT has always been aerodynamic and stable, so there is no need to change anything at all. Moreover, the vehicle looks rather attractive. The only novelty when it comes to the exterior design of the vehicle is the bright-yellow paint job along with the black stripe that runs from the nose toward the rear wing of the car. Of course, the 2016 Venom GT is available in several exterior themes, but the center stripe represents a brand-new detail.
