Venom GT sets new world record

It’s official: the Hennessey Venom GT is the fastest car to accelerate from 0-300km/h… in the world.

You already knew the Texan-built FrankenLotus was a little bundle of unholy firepower, but now the dinky nuke has burned its name into the record books. Specifically, the Guinness Book of World Records; a representative was officially on hand during a record-run along Ellington Field in Houston to clock the Venom’s raucous acceleration.

The GT, powered by a twin-turbocharged 7.0-litre aluminium V8, took just 13.63 seconds to hit 186mph. That’s not quick, that’s Quick.
