Hennessey Venom GT | World’s Fastest: 270.4 MPH

Offered at $1.4 million

Hennessey Performance (HPE) has built the last word in hypercars: the 1244-bhp Venom GT, an aluminum-chassis, carbon-bodied machine whose 7.0-liter twin-turbo aluminum-block V-8 will obliterate any other production car from 50 to well over 250 mph. The Venom GT, whose mid-longitudinal dry-sump powerplant drives massive 345/30R-20 rear tires, holds the Guinness World Record for 0-300 km/h (186 mph) acceleration, accomplishing the feat in just 13.63 seconds. On February 14, 2014, the Hennessey Venom GT set a new world speed record for 2-seat sports cars by reaching a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h). The run was performed at the Kennedy Space Center on the 3.2-mile Space Shuttle landing runway. Brian Smith, Director of Miller Motorsport, experienced race driver and a former Michelin tire test engineer, drove the Venom GT to its record speed.

This handbuilt hypercar handles and stops as fiercely as it accelerates, with Penske double-adjustable coilovers, double A-arm suspension all around and Brembo 6-piston aluminum calipers clamping 15-in. carbon-ceramic rotors at each corner. Composite materials and aerospace-quality construction techniques keep the Venom GT strong, safe and light; its hybrid aluminum monocoque/tubular structure incorporates chrome-moly steel roll-over hoops, and the entire car weighs in at a svelte 2743 lb. Forged monoblock aluminum wheels are fitted with Michelin Pilot Super Sport radials.
