Hennessey Venom GT registers 435 km / h

Hennessey Venom GT registers 435 km / h

Hennessey held a speed test with the Venom GT at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida (United States). And, according to the Top Gear website, the model registered the trademark of 435.31 km / h, surpassing the record set by Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in 2010 of 431.07 km / h.

Nevertheless, we can not consecrate the Venom GT as the fastest production car in the world. That's because the regulation of the Guinness Book provides that a record can only be approved if the test has two "batteries" in the same path, but with the car going in opposite directions on each. The final maximum speed is obtained from the maximum average of the two passages.

Another factor that would prevent the permanent appointment of the Venom GT as the fastest is its production. For purposes of record, it is necessary that the model has at least 30 units built, and the car mounted Hennessey will have only 29 (11 already delivered to buyers).
