As you do your best to save a little gas this summer, it might make you feel a little better to know that Steven Tyler just spent a little more that $1,100,000 on a new car.

Steven just took delivery of his new 2012 Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.  It is the first of only five vehicles that the company will produce this year.

This car doesn’t just look fast, it IS fast…  The Hennessey has a 1,244 horsepower twin turbo v-8, and only weight 2,743 pounds.  The car will hit 200 mph in less than 16 seconds, 8 seconds faster than the Buggatti Veyron.  For comparison on the other end, it takes a smart car 16 seconds to reach 60 mph.

I don’t know what upsets me more about this… that Tyler has this kind of money to spend on a car, or the fact that he wears socks with sandals.

Here’s a YouTube video of some photos taken as Steven received his new wheels…
