Venom GT spyder set new world record
Venom GT spyder set new world record? Indeed, apparently on March 25, 2016, the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder has set a new world record for open-top sports cars. And there is a video by hpedesign to prove it. Basically, this apparently means that the Venom GT spyder is now faster than the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport WRE (only 5 units in the world). Well, I don’t know about you, but I don’t really care about who is the fastest car. I mean sure, it’s a prowess of technology and a great achievement. But let’s face it, who really drives cars at those high speeds lol. Also, the Bugatti Chiron is just in the corner, so… You better watch out Henessey Venom GT spyder, I don’t think this record will hold for long if Bugatti wants to play again at this little « who’s the fastest » game.
But how exactly do you measure a speed record? Well, introducing Racelogic, the renowned independent speed testing firm, which has officially confirmed that a top speed of 265.6 mph (427.3 km/h) was achieved. The record run was certified by Racelogic technical director, Jim Lau, and witnessed by US Navy Commander Darren Fouts, Air Operations Officer. The Venom GT spyder set new world record was driven by Brian Smith.
