Had it not been for some silly rules, like needing 30 production cars to qualify and needing two back-to-back runs, the Hennessey Venom GT would have taken home the title as the "World’s Fastest Production Car" after its 270.49-mph run at Kennedy Space Center. But those rules are in place, and Hennessey couldn’t care less, as it is rolling out a special World’s Fastest Edition Venom GTs in very limited quantities.
There is very limited information on the World’s Fastest Edition, but we do know that it features a red, white and blue livery to match the American flag. We also learned that the model will come in at a price tag of $1.25 million.
According to what I can gather, the Venom GT WFE will carry the same 7.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 as the rest of the Venom GTs. This means that it pumps out 1,244 horsepower, and shoots the hypercar to 60 mph in 2.7 seconds and 186 mph in just 13.63 ticks. While the Venom GT only hit 270.49 mph at Kennedy Space Center, Hennessey claims it can hit about 278 mph.
I’m sure that Hennessey will announce more details on the WFE Venom GT, if there is more to talk about, so stay tuned to TopSpeed.com for more details.
