Hennessey has managed to take down the Texas Mile speed record once again with its modified Ford GT.

Hennessey has managed to take down the Texas Mile speed record once again with its modified Ford GT.

In October last year the custom Ford GT established a new speed record at Texas Mile after hitting 263.3 mph (423.7 km/h). On Saturday they came back with the car and were able to reach a top speed of 267.6 mph (430.66 km/h).

They achieved this performance with the same car powered by a 5.4-liter Accufab Racing engine featuring two Precision turbochargers, while MoTeC's Shane Tecklenburg worked on the engine and power management. We are assuming for this latest run they used 117 octane racing gasoline fuel.

As a reminder, the Ford GT by Hennessey is a road-legal car featuring the inspection sticker, power windows, audio system, airbags and an air conditioning system.
