New World Speed Record
Kennedy Space Center, 3.2-mile Space Shuttle runway
The World Speed record has just been set and no, it wasn't by a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport or a Veyron derivative, it has been set by a Hennessey Venom GT at 270.49mph! Don't know the manufacture, well you do now and the Venom is about to become household name - the big question is, will a slot manufacture be releasing the Venom as slot car in the future, Scalextric perhaps?
Anyway, enough of the talk, you have to watch the below Youtube video and be sure to turn up the volume for all of the 4:39 glorious minutes!
