Hennessey Viper GT sets a new world record for fastest car, beating the Bugatti by a hair


Stuff a Vette engine into a Lotus and make globs of power, then tweak the aerodynamics til it's clean, and get a really long runway.

the Hennessey Venom GT achieved a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h) at the Kennedy Space Center on the Shuttle Landing Facility’s 3.2-mile runway.

The Hennessey Performance team was able to utilize the Shuttle Landing runway via the Performance Power LLC Space Act Agreement which is a collaboration with manufacturers and race teams alike to utilize the shuttle runway for the purposes of engineering validation, safety, innovative product design, and aerodynamic testing.

A representative from VBox USA, world-renowned maker of engineering data-acquisition systems, was on hand to independently verify and document the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance.
