Meet the $1.25M Venom GT ‘World’s Fastest Edition’
We like vehicles that can handle all sorts of terrain and get you where you need to go, like the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but we also have a soft spot for the fastest of fast. On that note, let’s talk about the Venom GT. It has earned a Guinness World Record as the quickest car to reach 300 kilometers per hour (186 miles per hour) to go along with its recorded top speed of 270.49 miles per hour, which was recorded last month at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.
Hennessey thinks that is call for a celebration. To commemorate the honors, it’s building a new “World’s Fastest Edition” of the Venom GT, limited to just three units priced at the modest price of $1.25 million each. If you wanted one of those, it is too late. All three have been sold to previous Hennessey customers, with the first one set to deliver this summer. The modifications are quite simple and understated. It will feature the addition of a red, white and blue stripe going down the center of the all-white body, as Hennessey sees it as America’s supercar and wants to show it. No mechanical changes, as if it would have needed it. It is packing a 7.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 making 1,244 horsepower that propelled it to 300 kmh in an amazing 13.63 seconds.
