Hennessey’s 270mph v-max in numbers
Land's End to John O'Groats in three hours? More insane figures from the Venom's record run

Hennessey drivers feel the (G) force
Carpet the brakes in something like a 911 and you pull around 1.3gs longitudinally. Which is quite brutal, but imagine doing it in reverse... When the 1,244bhp Venom went from 20mph to 120mph in just 7.71 seconds, driver Brian Smith experienced a maximum 1.2g. That's around 0.8 more than you'd experience during take-off on a commercial flight.
