Remember the Hennessey Venom GT that caught everyone's attention with its crazy fast speed? Well, as of now, it's officially the world's fastest car as it hits 270.49 mph at the Kennedy Space Center. The Venom GT beats the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport which held the previous title with a top speed of 268.86 mph.
Although, it is technically the world's fastest car, it can't receive the title since Gusiness Record requires the average speed from two runs. Since NASA only allowed Hennessey one run, the title was out of reach. The manufacturer also had to have a minimum of 30 cars and Hennessey stated that they will only produce 29 Venom GT's.

October 23, 2013 - ML24 releases Concept Design for a Mercedes-Benz SLK (R171) Wide Body Kit.
Inspired by the Mercedes-Benz Black Series and DTM race cars, this kit features aggressive flares and new bumper designs to match the latest Mercedes-Benz design language. One of the main objectives of this design study is to refresh the older generation SLK Class with more futuristic and extreme styling.
More sculpted and tighter surfaces are used in the design to follow the latest trends in exterior styling. Furthermore, various race-inspired design elements are implemented on the body panels.
Newest tuning package for Audi A8 comes from MTM tuning and features both visual and performance modifications.
Under the hood, remapped ECU and stainless steel exhaust system increases the power output to 650 HP which is a healthy increase of 130 HP. It takes only 4 seconds to reach from 0 to 100 km/h and the gauges stops at 293 km/h. This S8 is also equipped with sport braking system, F-Cantronic air suspension kit and 21-inch MTM bimoto alloys.
