    There's a picture posted in the M156 section showing all three. I don't know the schedule or what he plans to do but from what I understand they are here now. Hopefully we can arrange something. I'll talk to Weistec next month.

    This is correct.
    And thus the Veyron still holds the official record.
    They did 2 runs on the Ehra-Lessien-testtrack and averaged 431,0 km/h.
    NASA didn't allow Hennesey to run the car in the other direction.
    This speed record attempt was run at the 5km long NASA Space Shuttle landing strip at Kennedy Space Centre.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    I am curious, with all of the haters, can someone please tell me what is wrong with the Venom. The car is a hyper car by almost any definition.

    I do not defend John's actions of the past but I know him and I also know the business practices since Dave got involved....most people don't even know who Dave is...

    FYI here is the full video.

    @ecampbell this right here. If you want to see some REAL builds check out NRE. They make laughing stock of "Hennessey Performance" spend $100k with them and you'll actually see what you paid for. If you really want to, then take the car to someone that can do a body kit, then BAM! You've got a "Hennessey supercar" except...better.

    R&D costs....haha! I get so tired of hearing this, how much R&D do YOU think they spent on it? The cost are just making it into a production car, so essentially you are taking a one-off type of build/car and then paying out the ass for it so that more people can drive the same thing as you...no thanks
