Move over, Bugatti. The world’s fastest convertible is now from Texas.
Clocked doing an astounding 265.6 mph, the American-made Hennessey Venom GT Spyder is now officially the world’s fastest convertible.
It smashed the previous world’s-fastest convertible record set by the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport Vitesse by more than 11 mph.
The Texas-based carmaker Hennessey also set another record with its Venom GT hardtop in 2014 when it reached 270.4 mph at the Kennedy Space Center.
