Hennessey never tires of breaking records. After the tough battle between the Bugatti Veyron and the Hennessey Venom GT to take the speed record for a production car, today we discovered the fastest convertible in the world with a top speed of 427.44 km / h, the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.

Derived from the Hennessey Venom GT, this Spyder version loses its roof in a design that could be classified more as a targa vehicle than a convertible. Even so, Hennessey has chosen the name Spyder for this supercar that boasts being able to go convertible over 400 km / h. At the structural level, we find the obvious improvements in reinforcement, being especially important the reinforcements introduced between the rear pillar windshield that leave us with a cage very similar to those used in competition.

In the technical section we do not find differences with respect to the Venom GT. The propeller is a 7.0 V8 Twin-Turbo with 1,451 maximum horsepower. All the power is sent to the rear axle and is digested by a six-speed manual gearbox. The Venom GT Spyder features offer us a 0-100 km / h in just 2.4 seconds, a brand that will surely seek to beat the Bugatti Chiron once we see it on the streets.

On the occasion of the new speed record set by Hennessey, 3 units of the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder will be sold in limited edition and with commemorative details. Without knowing its exact price, we can tell you that the starting price of the Venom GT Spyder is 1.3 million dollars.

This speed record is officially registered and certified, as well as a pilot of the height of Brian Smith, Director of the Ford Performance Driving School. Further, this record serves Hennessey to commemorate its 25th anniversary as a builder, something that does not happen every day and more so in a manufacturer of this type after an impeccable legend of all kinds of preparations, he ventured into the creation of his own cars such as Venom GT.
