Steven Tyler’s New $1.1M Toy

vgt duo 300x199 Steven Tylers New $1.1M Toy[1]Legendary rocker Steven Tyler now owns the world’s fastest street-legal car, the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.

The jaw-dropping-powerful automobile is one of only five Venom GTs that will be built for the 2013 model year, Zig Wheels[2] reports.  Three of the cars, which are valued at around $1.1 million each, have already been sold.

Tyler approached Hennessey last year and asked them to build a convertible version of the wicked-fast car. Company founder John Hennessey agreed to take on the project.

“We had to make a few structural changes to our integrated rollcage in order to be able to fit the removable top,”Hennessey told Zig Wheels.

The beauty pictured above is the hardtop version of the Venom GT. Tyler’s car is slightly sleeker, black and looks like the “Batmobile.” But don’t take my word for it. You can check out several great pictures of Aerosmith’s front man with his new wheels at venomgt.com[3].
