US engineers have developed Venom GT, world’s fastest car hits 435 km/hour. US firm Hennessey’s Venom GT place the new record for the fastest car in the world throughout a test run at the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. Venom thrashes the previous best record of 431km/h put by Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. The record is imposing as test driver Brian Smith started from rest, ruined the record and stopped on a 5.1-kilometre stretch of tarmac rather than by using a high-speed oval to present the car a running start.
Mysterious history of Hennessey Venom GT
The Hennessey Venom GT is an American sports car was manufactured by Texas-based Hennessey presentation Engineering. It was exposed on March 29, 2010.
On January 21, 2013, the Venom GT locate an average 0–300 kilometers per hour (0–186 mph) acceleration time of 13.63 seconds. In totaling, the car set an unsanctioned record for 0–200 mph (0–322 km/h) acceleration at 14.51 seconds, defeat the Koenigsegg Agera R's time of 14.53 seconds, create it the informal fastest accelerating car in the world.
On April 3, 2013, the Hennessy Venom GT utilizes the 427.6 km/h (265.7 mph) over the course of 2 miles (3.2 km) for the duration of testing at United States Naval Air Station Lemoore in Lemoore, California. Hennessey used two VBOX 3i data logging systems to manuscript the run and had VBOX officials on hand to confirm the numbers.
Cape Canaveral, Florida—On February 14, 2014, after wide aerodynamic testing and data logging to confirm the CFD aerodynamic model throughout its intended performance range, the Hennessey Venom GT realized a top speed of 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h). The test session was performed at the Kennedy Space Center on the Shuttle Landing Facility’s 3.2-mile runway. Brian Smith, Director of Miller Motorsport Park, knowledgeable test driver and vehicle dynamic engineer, drove the Venom GT through all segments of the testing.
The Hennessey Performance team was capable to develop the Shuttle Landing runway via the Performance Power LLC Space Act accord. Performance Power team up with manufacturers and race teams alike to use the shuttle runway for the intentions of engineering validation, safety, modern product design, and aerodynamic testing. The Hennessey team, its engineers and test driver worked intimately with Johnny Bohmer and the Performance Power Team who completed this test probable. A delegate from VBox USA, world-renowned maker of engineering data-acquisition systems, was on hand to separately confirm and document the vehicle’s aerodynamic performance.
The Venom GT utilizes a highly customized Lotus Exige chassis. The manufacturer, Hennessey Performance Engineering, states the modified chassis utilizes mechanism from the Lotus Exige, including but not restricted to the roof, doors, side glass, windscreen, dashboard, cockpit, floorpan, HVAC system, wiper and head lamps. Hennessey Performance and the Venom GT are not connected with Lotus Cars. For road use, the car is recorded as a Lotus Exige (modified) and is not in reality a series production car.
The Venom GT has a manufacture curb weight of 2,743 pounds (1,244 kg) assisted by its lightweight carbon fiber bodywork and carbon fiber wheels. The brakes contain Brembo 6-piston calipers in the front and 4-piston calipers in the rear. The rotors contain 15 inches (380 mm) carbon ceramic units supply by Surface Transforms.
Hennessey creates the power plants at its ability in Sealy, Texas. The engines are then air freighted to the company's assembly capability near Silverstone, England where the Venom GT is built and experienced. Venom GT buyers will be offered a 1-day driver direction and instruction program by a Hennessey factory test driver at a track in the UK or USA prior to delivery.
Hennessey plans to originate a network of Venom GT dealers and distributors in the Middle East, Europe, Russia, Australia and Asia. Production is restricted to just 10 vehicles per year. The 750 hp Hennessey Venom GT price starts at 600,000 USD even as the 1,200 hp version starts at 1,000,000 USD. In Europe, the Hennessey Venom GT price rises up by just under 25,000 USD. As of February 28, 2014, 11 Venom GTs have been pretend. Hennessey have publicized that they only proposed to build a total of 29 of these cars.
