Hennessey Releases Video of the Venom's World-Record 0 to 300 km/h Run

A few days ago, Hennessey announced that its Venom GT supercar scored another impressive record by accelerating to 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 13.63 seconds . Today, the tuner has unveiled the video as a statement for their previous announcement.

After all, this result shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone considering the impressive specifications of the Venom GT. It is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter LS9 V-8 engine, same used in the Corvette ZR1 that delivers up to 1,200 horsepower, depending on the trim level. With a curb weight of 2,685 pounds, the 1,200-horsepower Venom GT will hit a top speed of 275 mph and will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 seconds. As expected, such an impressive performance will set you back a nice sum — $950,000.

The test was made at Ellington Airport in Houston, Texas, USA on January 10, 2013.

Brad, this Is a race car, you can’t go for a ride for..don’t know, shopping, with this car.Or you can, if you feel like it, but on your own risk...

Mind blowing, that’s all I can say about this video.I can barely believe it happened!

This is a real record!So much power!I’m wondering, if in the next year, they get 500mph in the same time?

I like it!It reminds me of the videogames I used to play in my adolescence smiley

This car looks like a bumble bee, in the pictures gallery.Now I realise how much can a simple color do

What?Such a high price?I would better invest in a house smiley
Of course, the car-maniacs would feel happy to give their kidneys for such a vehicle
