The favorite supercar underdog, the Hennessey Venom GT, has finally proven that it is the fastest production car–a bittersweet victory that will not go down in the records just yet. That is right folks, the Hennessey Venom GT has beaten the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, but the Veyron holds the title.
The Hennessey Venom GT supercar has beaten the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport at long last. Alas, the Venom GT will not be given the title of ‘Fastest Production Car’.
The reason that the Hennessey Venom GT’s victory over the Bugatti Veyron SS will not become official is sparking much speculation and conspiracy theories about who is in bed with whom. The reason is because in order to snag the title of ‘Fastest Production Car’, the Venom needed to make two runs and they were only permitted one. Seem sketchy? Why would Nasa simply deny the opportunity to make two runs, and did Hennessey know about the one run limit prior and go for it to make a point? There are so many questions at this juncture.
Watch the Venom GT hit 270 miles per hour in the clip above.
The Venom GT nailed the allotted run down the Nasa space shuttle landing runway in Florida at 270 miles per hour–therefore beating Bugatti’s 269. The Bugatti Veyron SS took the title on VW’s private test track in 2010, which is 5.5 miles of straightaway. According to dapper lads at Top Gear, the driver of the Hennessey Venom GT felt that given more than just the 3.22 miles, he could have gone even faster because the Venom was still pulling.
Will this amazing underdog ever be given the chance to compete on a fair level? And moreover, is it worth having a coveted title if the entire world knows there is something faster? Comment below!
Fun fact: Steve Tyler of Aerosmith is among the 11 people to take delivery of the Hennessey Venom GT so far.
