Just a couple of weeks ago, the Hennessey Venom GT set a new world speed record for 2-seat sports cars. If you can believe it, the car reached a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h). THAT IS INSANE.
The speed test was held at the Kennedy Space Center on the 3.2-mile space shuttle landing runway. The lucky driver? Brian Smith, Director of Miller Motorsports Park.
Interestingly enough, the Venom GT was powered with Pennzoil Platinum® with PurePlus™ Technology. It’s the first of its kind – a synthetic motor oil made from natural gas.
