On January 10 2013, Hennessey entered the Guinness World Records using their street-legal Venom GT supercar. The record was for the quickest 0-300 kph (0-186 mph) acceleration, with the Venom GT clocking a time of 13.63 seconds. That time was the average if two separate runs done in both directions within an hour, the necessary requirements as set down by the Guinness World Records.
The record is a boon for the American tuner, with only 29 Venom's set to be produced Hennessey is expecting the order books to fill up after this success. Each car is custom built and takes up to six months to complete. The total cost of all that incredible acceleration is $1.2 million US Dollars, not including options. The world now waits to see who will top this new record, with plenty of competitors lining up.
