2000bhp twin-turbo Ford GT that has just reached 257.7mp @ Texas mile

Sorry Timpo, Shelby 1,100hp Mustang can't even see the taillights of this bad boy!!


Hennessey Ford GT sets new record

Watch a 2000hp twin-turbo Ford hit a new standing mile record at the 2012 Texas mile


"I think I can do better in the lower gears next time and we can run an even better speed," says Sean Kennedy, driver of the twin-turbo Hennessey-powered Ford GT that has just set a new record at the Texas mile.

That's right, this Texan gentleman reckons he can go even faster than 257.7mph; the time he set driving Mark Heidaker's modified Ford GT at the Chase Field industrial complex in South Texas.

"I was impressed with how hard it pulled in fourth and fifth gears," he noted, somewhat modestly, considering just how hard the GT can bend space-time. The race-engineered 5.4-litre Ford V8 has had two turbochargers strapped onto its blue-collar banks, with a whopping 34psi of boost pressure harnessing 117 octane racing fuel.

In today's money, Hennessey tells us that equates to 2000hp - yup, you read that right - and a 0-62mph time of 2.9 seconds. As such, the team clocked up speeds of 216mph, then 228mph and 230.6mph on the final Friday run. On Saturday, the GT posted 246.8mph and later 250.1mph. In the cool conditions of Sunday morning, the team clocked the time of 257.7mph, apparently 4.6mph faster than the nearest competitive speed.

Nobody from Guinness was present to ratify it as a world record, but the current standing mile speed record was achieved by Johnny Bohmer from Performance Power Racing on 16 June last year in - surprise surprise - a modified Ford GT. He hit 223.42mph. That's 34mph slower than the Hennessey.

Mr Hennessey says he plans on submitting the record run data to Guinness, so we could be in store for a new world record.

Spoiler!
The price of the cars you listed above for the most part are more than double that of the Ford GT

It would be impossible for an engine to run 34psi on 87 octane.

I thought I had a good point. If you have 2,000hp, you better be doing more than 257.7mph...unless Ford GT has a huge coefficient of drag.

What part of standing mile don't you get.

You start from a dead stop. You drive 1 fucking mile. Your speed is recorded at the end of that mile.

Your not on a fucking 20 mile test track that is banked and allowing for a top speed run.

Berz out.

In 10 years, an engine with 1000 + horse power will be common. 10 years ago, a car that exceeds 150 is considered powerful but now, even a civic exceeds that. That's technology.

Because it can do more than 257.7mph.

This "test" only gave the Ford GT one mile to accelerate. It can't accelerate more than the 1 mile.
