World’s Fastest Car Goes 270 MPH *Video is So Cool*

This is something that men’s lifestyle writer Joe Likey would usually take on but this SoCal pinup found this first! Hennessey Performance Engineering released this video of the Venom GT hitting 270.49 MPH on the 3.2 mile track. Having driven a race car, I can only imagine how much faster and the rush you would get from this.

The Venom GT set a new world speed record for two-seat sports cars by reaching a top speed of 270.49 mph, by racing the high-performance car down the 3.2-mile Kennedy Space Center Space Shuttle landing runway in Cape Canaveral, Fla.

Brian Smith, director of Miller Motorsports Park just outside Tooele, Utah, drove the Venom GT to its record-setting speed. Racelogic, the world-renowned maker of VBox GPS data-acquisition systems, had a representative on hand to independently verify and document the Venom GT’s highest recorded speed.

The blistering speed is the fastest recorded time for a two-seat sports car, but because the Venom GT uses a modified chassis and other components from the Lotus Exige — and since only 11 have been produced — the Guinness Book of Records has not recognized the Venom as “the fastest production car.”

The video for the record is fantastic with a voice over from President Kennedy. Check it out… ZooooooooOOOOOoom.

  1. This is super cool but you wouldn’t catch me riding in that car, the speed would totally give me a heart attack!

  2. I think if someone wanted to hand that off to me, I’d be okay with it. :)

  3. Why exactly does a person need a car to go this fast?

  4. Wow, what a crazy speed.

  5. That’s crazy fast, I can’t imagine even riding in that car

  6. I would be too afraid to drive that car, it might lift off.

  7. I have never understood the need for speed. But to each their own.
