0-300 km/h in just 13.63 seconds* TWO way average

During testing done at Ellington Airport a few weeks prior to the Guinness® record runs, the Venom GT® accelerated to 300 km/h in 13.48 seconds while on its way to 370 km/h run (229.9 mph) in just 19.96 seconds."
Can somebody add these figures @Fastestlaps? Boss?
Also quote>"The Venom GT® produces 1,244 horsepower and 1,155 lb-ft of torque. Weighing just 1,244 kg (2,743 lbs) the rear-wheel-drive Venom GT® delivers a power-to-weight ratio of 1 horsepower per each kilogram of vehicle curb weight."
The Hennessey Venom GT was the FIRST One:1 hypercar unless the SSC Ultimate Aero was.
Very SERIOUSLY respect this little car. Look up the current unofficial "record" for 0-200MPH and compare the difference of a couple of tenths. Then look at the 0-300km/h difference. It's a sweet little car.
And also one LAST thing, Hennessey were prepared to run BOTH ways at JFK when they hit 270MPH circa. They were DENIED the opportunity and their requests were REFUSED. There are no discussions about that. Period.
Who knows what might have happened? I'm sad it didn't occur.
Wolfgang Durhiemer allegedly stated to John Hennessey that quote>"But as a Bugatti executive once told me, “next time be sure to run in both directions”.
The quote is from Top Gear the revelation that it was the ex boss of Bugatti came from an radio interview with one of the guys FROM Bugatti. LOL! Can't say if it's still around.
Well a couple of years later the Bugatti Chiron Supersport 300+ Longtail SMASHED 300MPH and it did a couple of other runs atleast one at OVER 299.6MPH. She absolutely knocked it right on out of the park.
But they didn't half look stupid doing it one way! LMFAO.
But then I get it. It was a pre production prototype and a validation run FOR that purpose. Bugatti didn't no toss about no "productions" record. They only held the OFFICIAL previous World Record for something like SEVEN straight years anyway? Hypercar of the decade!
Anyway, it's John's turn. I've looked at different angles preliminarily and at JFK it's going to be tight. But if there's one thing Hennessey know it's how to build an incredibly impressive engine. And she's a beauty. So Godspeed to them!
Can it beat SSC 286MPH peak plus two way average?
Well ALWAYS look at history. It's not like he hasn't set it before.
