World Record: Hennessey Venom Breaks 270mph Barrier
Guinness wont recognize the record because they didn’t do the run twice (forward and backward) and because Hennessey only built 29 Venoms instead of the 30 required by Guinness. As far as I’m concerned, that’s a minor technicality. The reality is that this wicked little twin-turbo, rear-wheel-drive V8 is the fastest thing out.
What’s really impressive? Had the runway been longer, they could’ve gone faster. Watch and see what I mean in the video below.
