0-200MPH= 14.51 seconds verified. 200-249MPH frame by frame from "264MPH" run= 11.781 seconds from RACELOGIC verified VBox.

14.51+11.871= 26.381 seconds= 0-400km/h!😲

Can't say I've ever seen that figure anywhere for this car. Well you have now. ;)

Ofcourse I'll triple check. But, not now.

Mr John Hennessey and his Venom GT! What more do you need?😂

 

This will be interesting.

I don't think people understand just how quick this little car IS. Nevermind back then. Anyway all this horseshit about being based on a Lotus is ****ing irrelevant particularly if you know what the forthcoming Koenigsegg Jesko and current Bugatti Chiron are based on, factually provable, in part.

Anyway I'm not nothing if not a man of my word and with that let's take a look at both cars but emphasis on the Hennessey Venom F5 ground up completely brand new literally everything.

And **** the airbags. Ahahaha!

Shaking my head!

Quote>"
0-300 km/h in just 13.63 seconds* TWO way average
0-60 mph in 3.05 seconds
0-100 mph in 5.88 seconds
Quarter-mile in 10.29 seconds at 158.83 mph
0-200 miles per hour (mph) in 14.51 seconds as verified by VBox GPS

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.

I'll do a fact find and see if we can pull some data off the official videos. Those acceleration claims don't look right and there aren't any sources.

@ uptownfunker

The Venom GT IS a tuned Lotus. It is a heavily modified car but legally, it is a tuned Lotus.

A 9ff GT9 is a 9ff. Legally, it is a 9ff.

The Venom GT has a Lotus VIN, Lotus title, Lotus registration, etc.

A 9ff GT9 has a 9ff VIN, 9ff title, 9ff registration, etc.

Even John Hennessey does NOT call this a production car. Read his quote in his own words...

“I’m going to back off my claim that this is the world’s fastest production car,” Hennessey said. “This is the fastest hyper car you can buy. And I plan to do a run that’ll give the people in Wolfsburg something to think about.”

It's a tuned Lotus.

luckyluke  7y ago

It is still registered as a lotus and the top speed run was not done by a normal venom gt, but by one with modified aero and only in one direction.


User avatar

uptownfunker  7y ago

...And actually this completes the standing halfmile at 206 mph and the standing fullmile at 253 mph. The top speed is at least 270 mph. http://www.venomgt.com/the-venom-gt/

This is NOT a tuned Lotus. It has a stretchier wheelbase and a completely different engine. Kinda like the 9ff GT9, or something like that.

The 0-200mph time is for the 2014 VGT with 1244hp out of an LS7.


User avatar

CrazyCat  8y ago

The 0-200 mph shouldn't be included. It says on their world record run that the 14.5 sec time was achived on the same run as when the car hit 0-186 in 13.1, which can also be observed and timed from watching the GPS tracked speed; which is when the car was experiencing a 4 mph tailwind. Because of the wind on That run, the venom was accelerating harder than usual.

It was over balanced out by the opposite run where the car went against the wind with a 6 mph headwind. On the opposite run it achieved 0-186 in over 14.1 sec and 0-200 in over 15.4.

I think the best source was the 0-230 mph testing they did earlier. 0-200 in something like 15 secs.

Top Speed is 270mph as seen on the video of the VBOX at JFK Space Ceneter shuttle landing runway.

I also believe these Bhp was make for better overall cars in the long shot, Just look at the massive improvments to the GT500.

And im pretty sure the P1, LaFerrari, (18 count as having Massive Hp numbers, Hell the GTR is already at 600Bhp, Now theres talk of the R36 GT-R having 800Bhp and Hybrid, And the upcomong(Maybe) New Lexus model having Over 600Bhp, Hp is getting more and more, Maybe not Audi(Even though we ALL know whet there really producing) But everyone is getting more and making better cars.(Although a little of the old times simplicity would be nice)

Well since we're talking about road cars and you jumped to race cars(and only mentioning horsepower for some reason), why stop there..? A 988hp Toyota TS040 is nothing.
NASA's Saturn V rocket made roughly 160,000,000 horsepower!
(with a stop speed of about 26,500mph.)

@flabernat

technically not the most powerful toyota
1. toyota TS040 (988hp, 875kg, 1200hp pr tonne)
2.toyota 7 (800hp, 7xxkg, never raced, playable in GT)
3. toyota 88C-V (700+hp, below tonne weight)
4. toyota GT-one
5. toyota TS030
6. any toyota TF-model (F1)

as for the most powerful roadcar, yes, but even then it never had a massive power boost for the NE (both the GT-R and 458 got 600hp, the NE only had a 10hp increase)


User avatar

Flabernat  9y ago

Not necessarily just horsepower, but the whole car(should have been more specific)... That said, none of those brands have produced a more powerful car(in recent memory)... GT-R=most powerful Nissan, LFA-most powerful Toyota...etc


User avatar

lafars  9y ago

@flabernat

except for the fact that the LFA and GT-R not having massive hp numbers

and the P1, laferrari and 918 doesn't have more power than the veyron

@BR2
the fastest pistonpowered car on earth only has 2200hp or 2500 depending on source (speed demon), just get that thing street legal and make the gear ratios short enough for it to start without pushing help, and then you have the fastest streetlegal car in the world

we see tuned cars with simular power getting NOWHERE NEAR 462mph (maximum recorded)

Great car, but I believe it is NOT a production car.


User avatar

Flabernat  9y ago

I love horsepower wars. Any time you let engineers go crazy it usually improves the brand as a whole... GT-R, LFA, ZR1...etc These cars pass down their tech and advancements to the cars for us common folk :)

BR2+  9y ago

Hp aint going no where, Cars are just gonne get more powerful and heavier as the years go on, But i do think there getting out of hand, 1400Bho Koenigsegg, 700Hp Dodges, Its getting crazy, But is it fun owning a car that is rather powerful, May be ridiculous, But cars like these are ment to be.
