Hennessey Venom GT rockets to 230 mph in less than 20 seconds [video]

Hennessey has released a new video of the Venom GT doing some acceleration testing.

While this wouldn't be terribly exciting with most cars, the Venom GT has a twin-turbo 7.0-liter V8 engine that produces up to 1,244 bhp (928 kW). This gives the model an impressive power-to-weight ratio of 1:2.2 which helps the car run from 0-60 mph in 2.5 seconds, 0-200 mph in 15.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 272 mph (440 km/h).

As you can see in the clip, the car easily rockets to 230 mph (370 km/h) in just a tick under 20 seconds. For comparison, the Bugatti Veyron takes 24.2 seconds just to reach 200 mph (322 km/h).
