Are Venoms good?

My dad is looking for a new car and is thinking about the Hennessey Motorsports Venom 800 Twin Turbo. I was wondering if any of you know if these cars are good or not. I know that they are fast and have a pretty good reputation but was just wondering if these are all they are put up to be. Hopefully they are so I can get my dads 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera.

Go see for yourself. In the Multimedia section on the main page there are two videos of a venom 800TT doing a quarter mile that I sent to Randy. The only thing I heard was that they were having trouble with either burning too much oil or leaking it.. one of the two. But if you wanna talk performance the 800TT can do it.. how does 0-60 in 2.4 sound?
