Watch Hennessey’s Venom GT Hit 270 MPH [Video]

If you were anywhere on the internet this time yesterday, you may have heard about Hennessey’s world record speed run. The potent Venom GT supercar made mince meat of the previous record by nearly 5 mph. At 270.49 mph, that makes it the fastest two-seat sportscar in the whole damn world. With Miller Motorsport Park director Brian Smith at the wheel, this twin-turbocharged monster made history at the Kennedy Space center. We'd say that record might stick for a while. Watch it all happen here:
