The World’s Fastest Car, Unveiled

The Hennessey Venom GT has proudly found its home as the world’s fastest car. With a speed of 270.49 miles per hour, the GT looks something like fine-tuned version of the Lotus Exige, with a sleeker, carbon-fiber body.

Born in a cozy tuning shop in Texas, the Venom GT has set the world record for fastest-two seat product sports car ever, a feat not even its European supercar nemeses could claim. It delivers a 1,244 horsepower engine and only 1,155 pounds of torque, which enables the auto to hit 60 mph in a jaw-dropping 2.7 seconds.

Priced at a very pretty $1.2 million, the car wasn’t made for the feint of heart (or wallet). A more affordable option comes in at just $995,000 and features a 1,000 horsepower, just two hundred mph shy of its fully loaded sister breed.

It’s the modern-day Bat mobile. Only faster.
