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

It decelerates faster than an aeroplane
It took the Venom 1,055.7 meters and 15.92 seconds to decelerate from 270.49mph to 60mph. That's less than half the distance it takes a jet like this one to land and come to a stop with maximum autobrake on (around 2550m, fact fans). And the plane's only slowing from around 160mph.
