The Hennessey Venom GT is ready to achieve a new world record.
Although currently there are not many details about it, this bare-bones video (which you can see at the end of the article) invites us to point to an imminent date on the calendar. The next day, April 11. A date on which the guys from Hennessey Performance already warn us that it will lead to a new world record with his Hennessey Venom GT. In addition, it is a record very special.
The reason? For neither more nor less than the 25 anniversary of the company that has given life to this and other “beasts on wheels”. Returning to the video, through which, Hennessey invites us to be attentive to that date, everything seems to indicate that they have managed to beat the world record which they themselves established in the year 2014 reaching 435 km/h at the Kennedy Space Center.
And although, as we say, Hennessey has not given many details about the unit you have achieved this record, it is possible that they have used the model seen during the SEMA Show last year. If so, it would be an updated version of the Venom GT, though for the moment best to wait to have the official data.

In any case, we would be faced with a supercar capable of overthrowing the recently launched Bugatti Chiron. A model presented at the Geneva motor show 2016, and it marks a maximum speed of 420 km/h (electronically limited).
on the other hand and going to the section mechanic Hennessey Venom GT, it is interesting to recall some of the figures that make this a real beast on wheels. A beast that you can now skip to the left as if a real missile it were. Recall that the Venom GT from Hennessey Performance makes use of a engine BiTurbo V8 of 7.0 liters with 1,261 in CV and 1.565 Nm of maximum torque.
An engine associated with a manual transmission Ricardo six-speed. On the other hand, this “hypercar” fixed a weight of 1,244 kilograms and, thanks to their mechanics, can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 2,7 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 447 km/h. Other details to keep in mind are the tires Michelin Pilot Sport Cup ZP or the brakes are carbon-ceramic with the ability to control the power that emanates from your engine.
