World’s Fastest Car Clocks Record Speed of 270.49 MPH!!!


On Feb. 14, the Hennessey Venom GT supercar set a new world speed record for two-seat sports cars, reaching a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h). Brian Smith, director of Miller Motorsports Park, an experienced test driver and vehicle dynamics engineer, drove the Venom to glory on the Kennedy Space Center’s 3.2-mile Space Shuttle landing runway. This isn’t the Hennessey team’s first speed record though, as the Venom GT also carries the title of world’s fastest from 0-300 km/h (13.63 seconds), and 0-200 mph (14.51 seconds).
