Meet The Fastest Car In The World In 2016 By Hennessey

At a price tag of just under $1.5 million, you too can get behind the wheel of one of the world’s fastest cars – the Hennessey Venom GT. Clocked at a staggering 270 mph, this custom design from Hennessey Performance currently holds the world record for car land speed. Because only 16 have been sold to date, Hennessey Performance missed the added distinction of fastest car in production in the Guinness Book of World Records.

But before we leave our jaws agape, let’s take a quick look under the hood. Powering this distinct Hennessey design is a scorching hot 7.0 L LSX Twin Turbocharged V8. This engine can rev up to 7,200 rpm and has three distinct engine outputs, the greatest having a max output of 1,200 bhp. The transmission was ripped directly from the Ford GT from which it got its title – and a fitting choice as well. The Ricardo 6-speed manual transmission is the perfect choice to control gear ratio performance of this blistering fast engine.

In order to break world speed records for cars, the Hennessey Venom GT had to design its own state-of-the-art carbon fiber frame to reduce weight and severely decrease air friction drag. The “World’s Fastest Edition” model which came out in 2014 featured this acclaimed racing coupe feature when they went on sale for a cool $1.25 million each. You’ll need your own pit crew to maintain it but at that price, we’re guessing the three people who snatched them up already have their own.
