…Hennessey’s Venom GT looks good?

Hennessey Venom GT

If these concept sketches are any indication, Hennessey is working on a Venom GT that is a pile of speed rolled around in bits of sexy. (Though if you squint a little, it looks like a Lotus Elise on steroids, which also wouldn’t be a bad thing.)

The Viper tuner turned supercar builder is supposedly working on this beast, with a twin-turbo, mid-mounted Viper V10 giving an estimated 0-60 mph time of just 2.4 seconds, and an estimated 0-200 mph time of just 15.7 seconds, with a top speed of 260 mph. (It’s helped by it’s 2,700 lbs. curb weight and 2.7 lbs. per horsepower ratio.)

Will this ever see the light of day?

We can only hope.

…Guinness is great for dominoes?


Guinness harnessed the power of the Rube Goldberg style dominoes chain for their latest commercial, and the results are rather impressive.

It apparently took an entire week to film, with some sequences requiring up to 15 reshoots, so I can only imagine the dedication that these dominoes builders displayed. I’d say it was worth it though:
