Sports car breaks speeds of 270 mph on NASA landing strip in Florida


The Hennessey Venom GT isn’t just pretty to look at. It’s now known as the fastest sports car in the world.

The super car set a new land speed record earlier this month, clocking in at 270.49 miles per hour. It narrowly beats the old record held by Bugatti’s Veyron Super Sport.

The record-setting run happened earlier this month at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida on a runway made for space shuttle landings.

The entire run from naught to 270.49 mph took less than a minute.

It’s unclear, however, whether the car’s achievement will make it into the Guinness World Records. To be officially recognised, a car must make two runs in opposite directions, something that wasn’t allowed on the NASA landing strip.
