PH spies John Hennessey's new hypercar at Silverstone

As we reported last week, 30 March is the big dayfor tuner John Hennessey's latest project, when his 1000hp Venom GT will be officially revealed.

But the PistonHeads super-sleuths have been hard on the case. PHer Adam Thorby spotted the elusive Venom GT - which is expected to get its first proper public outing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed - parked up in Silverstone business park.

These are the most detailed snaps yet of the twin-turbo LS9 V8-powered hypercar, which is based on the humble Lotus Elise.

Although the nose remains recognisably Lotus-derived and the tail is Exige-esque, the proportions are more akin to those of a Porsche Carrera GT, and there is very little Lotus-related stuff from the engine bulkhead back.

Mr Thorby - legend that he is - also found time to take a quick walk-round vid of the Venom, which you can see below.
