As we continue to celebrate the new look of the Cool Injected ADESA.com, we’ve been taking a look at what we think is cool. To start off, let’s check out the world’s fastest car available to the public.
Recently, a new contender challenged the Guinness Book of World Records record holder for the world’s fastest production car, or in other words, the fastest car on the market. The challenger, the Hennessey Venom GT, challenged the title holder Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport’s record of 167.8 mph. After clarifying some technicalities on the definition of “world’s fastest production car”, Guinness reinstated the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport’s title. Check out the video of Bugatti’s official Guinness World Record track run below.
Don’t feel bad for Hennessey just yet. The Venom GT still holds its own impressive world record for reaching 300 kph (186 mph) in only 13.63 seconds, not to mention its 0–60 mph acceleration time of a mere 3.01 seconds.
At an organization where many of us are as passionate about what we do as we are about cars, there are few experiences more exciting than the thought of pummeling down a speedway at record-breaking speeds.
