The Texas Mile has once again come and gone and if there was a takeaway from the weekend festivities, it’s Hennessey Performance’s show-stopping run that clearly became the news of the weekend.
According to The Texas Mile’s Facebook page, the fancily dressed Ford GT1000 managed to hit a blistering top speed of 267.6 mph at the biannual event in Corpus Christi, Texas.
267.6 mph, everybody!
If that speed is fully corroborated - and we no reason to believe it won’t be - then Hennessey’s GT has just set a new record, handily beating the 263.3 mph it set last October and the 257.7 mph top speed it did this time last year.
We expect to see an official update at any time with some more photos and videos of the Hennessey GT’s blistering top speed run.
For what it’s worth, though, big props to the fellas over at Hennessey for once again setting a new bar in man’s insatiable quest of driving faster than it ever has before.
