A once in a lifetime opportunity has arisen – recently listed on duPontREGISTRY.com is the record setting 2014 Hennessey Venom GT.
Back in February 2014, Hennessey Performance took this very Venom GT to the runway at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida. Before coming to a halt at the end of the runway, the supercar hit a speed of 270.49 mph.
This 1,244 bhp Venom GT has a carbon fiber body built around an aluminum chassis that, when combined with all mechanical pieces, weighs only 2,743 lbs. With this low weight and a twin-turbo aluminum-block V8, it can go from 0-60 mph in 2.7 seconds, 0-100 mph in 5.6 seconds and 0-200 mph in just 14.51 seconds.

In addition to the record speed, this Venom GT holds another world record. Its acceleration time from 0 to 300 km/h, or 186 mph, took just 13.63 seconds. With that timing, it won a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
Truly, it’s a piece of automotive history. Boundaries were pushed farther, limits tested and innovations sparked as a result of the feats this Venom has accomplished. It’s not just a chance to own a rare supercar – it’s a chance to own a rare, really fast, incredibly powerful and beautiful piece of automotive history.
