We’re just like kids during Christmas morning – the moment when Hennessey is going to clear up the fog around its mysterious and suggestive teaser just can’t get here fast enough.
In the world where Nurburgring lap time records drop like shooting fish in a barrel, it seems the high stakes are also being targeted by those who have the means and desire to do so. The ball was opened by Bugatti with its brand-new Chiron, who decided to prepare itself for next year’s world production car speed record attempt by taking down the 0-249-0 mph (0-400-0 kph) section. That didn’t last long though, because Koenigsegg was asked by an intrepid client to put his yet to be delivered Agera RS to the test, and the Swedish hypercar made do with Chiron’s time fast and easy.
Now there’s another world record title Bugatti might be in jeopardy of losing – the all-mighty crown, if we’re to believe a teaser image released by Hennessey. It shows part of the rear of the highly-anticipated, new generation Venom F5, and not only that, but also seems to suggest the Venom GT’s successor is going to have a go at surpassing the 300 mph (482.8 kph) level. That would be well above the current record – 258 mph (415 kph), posted back in July 2010 at the Volkswagen Group’s Ehra-Lessien test facility by the unrestricted Veyron Super Sport World Record Edition.
