A wild ride indeed, and enough to claim the winner of fastest to 200 MPH in a shootout against the fastest of the fast in 2007. Our Venom 1000 Twin Turbo Dodge Viper beat the Bugatti Veyron to 200 MPH by nearly 4 seconds!
This was an event that inspired John Hennessey to create the Hennessey Venom GT which also took a title from Bugatti for the fastest production vehicle hitting 270.49 MPH at the NASA Space Shuttle landing facility.
