Check out this run from February 9, 2013 as the Hennessey Venom GT super car posted a speed of 265.7 miles-per-hour in 2 miles at the US Naval Air Station in Lemoore, California. You want to talk about fast – how about the fact this barely missed the mark as the fastest production vehicle in the world, which is 267.856 MPH set by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The Venom GT was absolutely flying when it made this run, and we could watch the video over and over showing this super car flying down the strip.
Don’t feel too bad for the Venom GT – it does currently own the world record for the fastest acceleration from 0-300 km/h acceleration time at 13.63 seconds. So while it may not quite be the fastest modified production car in the world, it is the quickest. The Venom GT makes use of many of the body components of a Lotus Exige, and boasts a 7.0 L LS9 twin turbocharged V8 engine, which produces 1,244 BHP and 1,115 ft-lbs of torque. If you’re planning on parking one of these in your garage, better get the checkbook ready – the 1200 HP version is sold by Hennessey at a price of $1 million. That almost makes the 750 HP version sold at $600,000 a steal. For now, we’ll settle for watching videos like this showing what the incredible Venom GT can do.
