Hennessey Performance World Fastest Edition Venom GT’s top speed run of 270.4 mph (434 km/h), which was set at NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre in February, 2014. The World’s Fastest Edition (WFE) also alludes to the Venom’s 0-300 km/h Guinness World Record. The special livery package includes a body in white with red and blue stripes, which incorporates the colours of the American flag—the same flag that the car broke 270 mph on the Space Shuttle runway. The Venom GT generates its incredible speed from a simple formula: huge power, minimal weight. Its 7.0-liter twin-turbo V8 makes 1244 bhp and with only 2743 lb. to accelerate (that’s 1244 kg, hitting that magic 1 bhp/kg mark), the Venom GT is not only the fastest series-produced road car; it’s also the quickest. It holds the Guinness World Record for standing-start acceleration, rocketing from rest to 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 13.63 seconds. Lightweight aluminium construction, carbon-fibre bodywork and featherweight carbon-ceramic brakes all make this extraordinary power/weight ratio possible.
