    As it turns out, the 1000TT is a totally different car than the 800TT. I had earlier thought it was Hennessey just monkeying around with turbo pressures and NOS, but this photo (taken just last weekend) shows otherwise. Apparently, it has all the mods of the 800TT engine package, but with a stroker crank. It's still not bored out and reinforced like the Apex Lethal 750 or Lingenfelter 540 (ci) Viper, so there's room left I suppose.
    Word has it that at this event, there was also a silver 800TT, so there's a good chance there are at least 3-5 of these things built for customers already (besides the burnt orange car in MT and C&D, and the red one on this site).

    For a guy who's supposed to be in jail and bankrupt, Hennessey sure is busy!

    i agree that the viper can has room for improvement by boring out the engine(the viper 800 still runs the 488cid)

    take a look at the TNT King Snake Viper from http://home.earthlink.net/~streetwiz/topcars/tuners.html ('01-present) -- $83,000 base Dodge Viper + $40,00 upgrade, 8.3L V10, 777hp, 0-60 3.6 sec., 1/4 mile 11.4 sec.
    Highs: Huge horsepower increase without any forced induction. Bored and stroked to 8.3L. Street legal. Top speed is 208 mph.

    also, hennessey is in trouble right now w/some of his costomers, this is from http://www.caranddriver.com/xp/Caranddriver/columns/2002/september/200209_columns_steering.xml
    "one eager buyer sent his Dodge Viper GTS, with a check for $122,500, to Hennessey Motorsports in Houston. The check was for converting his stock Viper into a Hennessey Venom 800 Twin Turbo, and it was supposed to be delivered in 12 weeks. Later, the buyer sent an additional $20,000 to pay for a further horsepower boost to 1000. But the owner didn't get the car back in 12 weeks. In fact, some 10 months later, in February 2002, no work had been done on the car—and worse, according to the buyer, several parts had been removed from his stock Viper and sold off! This owner has since filed a lawsuit against Hennessey seeking the return of his car, his $142,500, and the usual "punitive damages."

    i don't really care about the lawsuit, as long as hennessey will make the car.

    Really? Is it the same car as pictured above? The one up there is actually based on a '96 GTS.
    Where does Hennessey find the time? (Where does he find the customers?)

    You tell him bluey. Did anyone of you hear about the 98 or 99 1100hp Viper. Im not sure what year it was, but I saw it at the 24 hours of lemans. It kicked Chev's butt.
