John Hennessey Tells the Story of the Venom GT

John Hennessey is the man to go to if you want your Ford, Chevrolet, Cadillac or pretty much any other car to go faster. Hennessey Performance is also the company that builds the world’s fastest two-seat sports car, the Venom GT.

Last year, the car hit 270.49 mph (435.31 km/h), which made it faster than the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and its 267.81 mph (430.99 km/h) record. Coming from a small family-run company that doesn’t have the backing of an established automaker, the Venom GT’s performance is really mind-blowing.

The folks from XCar paid a visit to Hennessey Performance’s shop and got to talk with the man that started it, John Hennessey. Topics included the company’s activity in general and the Hennessey Venom in particular. Scroll down to watch the video.
