The battle for the fastest car in recent years is between the Bugatti Veyron and the Hennessey Venom GT.
The Guinness Book of Records reports that the Veyron is currently a record holder with its 431 km / h. Just a few months ago, Hennessey Venom managed to develop 435 km / h, but the achievement is not reported as official.
The reason is that the "Guinness Book of Records" has two basic requirements - the car to make two attempts - one in each direction, while Venom makes only one.
The second reason is the requirement to produce a minimum of 30 cars, while the Hennessey Venom GT is planned in "only" 29 units.
To dispel doubts, Hennessey plans to launch a new modification of the Venom GT, which will be able to develop 290 mph or 466.71 km / h. The F5 plugin will also appear next to the name.
So far, Hennessey has sold 16 of its Venom GT models. The price of each of them is 1.2 million dollars, but the F5 is expected to cost 100 thousand more.
Engine power will be increased from 1244 to 1400 hp, and acceleration from 0 to 300 km / h will be done in an incredible 13.65 seconds.
