Hennessey Venom GT

On February 9, 2013 the Hennessey Venom GT tried to pick up the  gauntlet that was thrown down by the mighty Bugatti Veyron with a 265.7MPH (427.6 km/h) run, down a 2 miles runway at Naval Air Station Lemoore, California, which seems to be just sort of the 267.856 mph (431.072 km/h) set on July 4th 2010 by the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport at Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien high-speed test track.  Hennessey states that the Veyron Super Sport did a run of 267.8 mph, Bugatti speed-limits its production vehicles to 258 mph, Thus, at 265.7 mph the Venom GT is the fastest production car available to the public.” Since the Venom GT is a hugely modified car we think he might be getting a bit picky about this one. What do you think ?

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
