Everything that comes with the Hennessey name on it is amazing but this Hennessey “Fly Navy” Venom Viper tops the list. Used in the 2007 Speed Kings feature story by Road & Track, this potent Hennessey-built ‘06 Viper SRT/10 First Edition goes beyond supercar status, driving to an amazing 220.9mph over just two miles of pavement. Now, bragging rights like that can be yours as the Fly Navy Viper heads to the Mecum Anaheim auction in just a few days. Now that’s what we call an opportunity of a lifetime.
The Fly Navy Viper is just one of 24 Venom 1000 Vipers ever created by the supercar masters at Hennessey. Equipped with a twin turbocharged V10 engine, which features computer-regulated progressive power delivery, this Viper is capable of producing upwards of 1,100hp with 800hp on hand right from launch.
But that’s not all this car has going for it.
As one of the craziest supercars to come out of the Hennessey facility at the time, the Fly Navy Viper was not only featured in Road & Track’s 2007 Speed Kings feature, it was also cast as a cover story for German publication Auto Bild, and Motor Trend’s all around supercar shootout feature in 2006. With a top speed of 220.9mph at Naval Air Station Lemoore in California for Road & Track’s 0-200mph test, it’s no wonder this car is such a star. What’s even more impressive is that the Viper’s 0-200mph time at the Road & Track test was four seconds faster than that of the Bugatti Veyron, the fastest production supercar at the time. Check out the amazing run from inside the Viper in the video below.
Now this famous Viper can be yours on Saturday November 17th as it crosses the auction block at the Anaheim Convention Center at 4:30p.m. With only 3,089 miles on the odometer, being #67 of the only 200 First Edition Vipers made and one of only 24 Hennessey Venom 1000 Vipers ever produced, this car should go for one pretty penny.
