On February 14, 2014, the Hennessey Venom GT supercar clocked a new land speed record of 270.49 mph at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. This makes it the world’s fastest car. Faster (by 4 mph) than a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. But not officially in the Guinness Book of World records as to be officially recognized the car must make the same run in opposite directions, something that was not allowed on the NASA landing strip.
