The Hennessey Venom hit 270.49mph at the Kennedy Space Center making it the highest speed ever recorded by a production car.
The 1,244bhp Venom clocked its record-breaking figure beating the the Bugatti Veyron SS to the post as the fastest car in the world.
The stats from this world record will blow you away! The Venom is powered by a 7.0-litre twin-turbo GM based V8, which accelerated from 20mph to 120mph in just 7.71 seconds and to make that even more impressive it pulled a maximum 1.2g of longitudinal acceleration as it went. That’s freaking insane!
