The title of worlds fastest production car now belongs to a small Texas tuning company Hennessey. On Monday their Venom GT super car weighing in at 2,800 pounds with 1,244 horsepower hit 270.49 mph at the Kennedy Space Center. The 3.3 mile straight strecht of tarmac, used for landing space shuttles, wasn't long enough for the Venom. Although it was able to beat the record, the Hennessey team believes they would be able to squeeze our another 5-10 mph on a longer track. The previous record of 269.86 held by the Volkswagen owned Bugatti Veyron was set on the Ehra-Lessien test track, boasting two 5.5 mile straight aways coming off of gradual turns.
