Hennessey Venom GT 0-300 km/h Record Video

Venom Record Video 545x280 at Hennessey Venom GT 0 300 km/h Record Video

Hennessey Performance released a video of their latest accomplishment with the Venom GT supercar, which is setting a new world record for the fastest acceleration from 0 to 300 km/h (186 mph). It took the mighty Venom only 13.63 seconds to reach the target speed, and it bagged a Guinness certificate for it.

As is the case with Guinness World Record attempts, the time is the average of a 2-way run. The venue for this was a runway at Ellington Airport in Houston, Texas, and the driver at the wheel was John Kiewicz.

Needless to way the record-setting Venom GT was a top of the line version with 1,200hp and 1,135lb-ft torque. Hennessey also makes ‘low-fat’ versions with less power. The new 2013 model however will be offered with a full 1,500 horsepower output.

Venom GT’s world record effort will also be featured on DRIVE channel’s tuned show next week.
