According to different specialists, the Hennessey Venom GT is the fastest production car in the world from 0 to 300 km/h. It managed to enter the Guinness World Record with its 1.244 horsepower output.
The street version of the Venom GT model was tested in the presence of a Guinness representative as well as VBox officials. It performed two runs that were made in opposite directions within one hour. The results were then validated at the Ellington Airport, which is also used by NASA, found in southern Houston, Texas, by a VBox 3i GPS-based data logging system.
The first run was completed by the model powered by an improved version of the Corvette ZR1, a model equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 LS9 twin-turbocharger engine. This managed to enable the car complete the sprint in 13.18 seconds with a 4 mph tailwind. In the second run, the car managed to complete the sprint in 14.08 seconds with a 6 mph headwind. The average of the 0-300 km/h sprint was established at 13.63 seconds. This is how the Hennessey Venom GT obtained the world record. The entire team is very proud of their achievements and to see their name in the Guinness World Record is a big deal. This test was actually the first one of several validation tests that is made to establish the speed of the cars.
As you probably already know, Guinness only recognizes records made in km / h and this is why Hennessey officials made good use of their time at the Ellington Airport to set an unofficial acceleration record of 0 to 200 mph in 14.51 seconds. This record was previously held by Koenigsegg Agera R that required 17.68 seconds. Just for comparison, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is 7.7 seconds slower than the Venom GT as it needs 22.2 seconds to reach 200 mph. The Venom GT receives power from a 7.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine based on an LS9 and it is priced at $1.2 million.
