BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — The 3-mile runway at Kennedy became a laboratory yesterday for one of the fastest production cars in the world as Performance Power Racing and Hennessey Performance conducted aerodynamic testing with a Hennessy Venom GT.

Company boss John Hennessey describes the Venom GT as “the supercar I have always dreamed of building,”

The Venom raced down the Shuttle Landing Facility’s concrete surface several times far exceeding the space shuttle’s touch down speed of about 225 mph.

The team won’t know it’s exact speeds until the data is analyzed, but the information gathered during Friday’s runs is expected to verify or refine computer design on the rare supercar.

Hennessey plans to establish a network of Venom GT dealers and distributors in the Middle East, Europe, Russia, Australia and Asia.

Production is limited to just 10 vehicles per year and the 750 hp Hennessey Venom GT price starts at $600,000,  while the 1,200 hp version starts at a cool $1 million.
