About

If you have the GDP of a small African nation hoarded under your mattress, you could invest it in government bonds for your children’s future, or you may like to buy the fastest production car in the world.

Now that you’ve made your decision, I’ll save you the research – the Hennessey Venom GT is officially the fastest production car in the world. Well for now anyway. In March of this year, the Venom clocked up 435.30 kilometres per hour (kph) on the speedo, suitably on a space shuttle landing strip in the US. That’s 122 metres per second for those keeping score at home.

The previous record was 432.68 kph set by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport; the long time arch-nemesis of the Venom. Think of it like Bold and the Beautiful for petrolheads.

The elephant in the room is the Venom’s glaringly obvious lack of cup holders and ham and cheese sandwich storage options. Shame. So close.
