On April 2nd of this year, the Hennessy Venom GT may have stripped the ‘World’s Fastest Production Car’ title from Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The Guinness Book of World Records recently announced that it was taking the title away from the Bugatti because an investigation into its 2010, 267.856mph run revealed that the speed limiter had been deactivated, going against the GBWR’s rules and making the Super Sport no longer qualify as a ‘production vehicle’. This opens the door for the Hennessy Venom GT to take its place as the new speed king, with a VBox-certified run of 265.7mph. However… this was done on a 2 mile runway; the car was still accelerating when they ran out of room, meaning a higher top speed is likely. Considering the Veyron takes 4 miles to achieve its 267mph record, the Venom GT’s achievement is very impressive. The figure hasn’t been officially recognized by the GBWR, but you can see the 413.2kph run in the video above.
If you want a 1,200HP Hennessy Venom GT, you can get your hands on one for the cool sum of $1,000,000,
