VIDEO: Aerosmith's Steven Tyler picks up Hennessey’s Venom GT Spyder



Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler took delivery of his brand new $1.1 million Hennessey’s Venom GT Spyder last June.

Now, video of the delivery, featuring Latvian model Jula Lescova, has surfaced.

Top Gear reports Tyler approached Hennessey Performance chief John Hennessey in 2011 to discuss the project.

"Steven came to us and asked if we could build his Venom GT as a roadster," said John. "We had to make a few structural changes to our integrated rollcage in order to be able to fit the removable top. This increased the weight of our vehicle by about 30lbs to a curb weight of 2,743lbs - 1,244kgs. So we decided to increase the Venom GT's power to 1,244bhp to maintain our one horsepower-per-one-kilogramme power to weight."

The car is billed as running from 0-200 mph in 15 seconds.

The rare vehicle is one of only five units made by the car company for the 2013 model year.
