Hennessey Performance (HPE) today announced that on January 10, 2013 its street-legal Venom GT supercar accelerated from 0-300 km/h in just 13.63 seconds, thus establishing the vehicle as a new record holder according to Guinness WORLD RECORDS (GWR). The acceleration time was an average of two runs made in opposite directions within one hour and validated by a VBox 3i GPS-based data logging system.
Hennessey only plans to build a total of 29 Venom GTs, with one-third of the production run already being sold. Thus, the Venom GT is not only the fastest accelerating production car in the world, it's also one of the most exclusive. The Venom GT costs $1.2 million US Dollars plus shipping and not including options. Each vehicle is custom built to order and requires six months for completion.
