Move over Bugatti, there’s a new Supercar in town!
American car manufacturer Hennessey have successfully revealed that their £800,000 car surpasses Bugatti’s Veyron, speeding at 270mph. Manufacturers were previously unable to prove the cars top speed as it was on their private test track. However, access to NASA’s space shuttle landing runaway in Florida allowed them to! Pilot Brian Smith claims the car could go 5-10 mph if the Florida runaway was just 3.22 miles longer. The Hennessey Venom GT is powered by a twin-turbocharged, 7-litre V8 engine which develops a 1,244bhp, allowing it reach 0-62mph in just 2.7 seconds!
