Remember the Hennessey Venom GT that caught everyone's attention with its crazy fast speed? Well, as of now, it's officially the world's fastest car as it hits 270.49 mph at the Kennedy Space Center. The Venom GT beats the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which held the previous title with a top speed of 268.86 mph.
Although, it is technically the world's fastest car, it can't receive the title since Gusiness Record requires the average speed from two runs. Since NASA only allowed Hennessey one run, the title was out of reach. The manufacturer also had to have a minimum of 30 cars and Hennessey stated that they will only produce 29 Venom GT's.
Nonetheless, it is awesome to see and hear that the record has been broken. Let's hope they go for that second run!
