The need for speed never experienced such an adrenaline rush.
The Texas-made Hennessey Venom GT broke the record last month for the fastest two-seated sports car when it reached 270.49 mph, according to Jalopnik.
The car utilized the 3.2-mile long Kennedy Space Center shuttle landing way in Cape Canaveral, Fla. It took 2.1 miles for the car to break the speed record — leaving only 0.8 miles of strip left to stop.
Unfortunately, however, the Guinness World Record folks still state that the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport still holds the title.
The Bugatti model reached 267.81 mph back in 2010, but the Guinness requirement states that for production cars, there must be 30 of them, and Hennessey only built 29 of the $1.2 million Venom GT.
