    It's nice to see the Buggati's record broken, though I think the Aero SSC had it beat already. Anyways not like these kind of cars are production, at least I don't consider it a production car, just like alot of Nurburgring times..

    Bragging rights only. Although, when you consider how small the market is for these type of cars, those who would fork over that kind of jack are typically doing so to be able to make that very statement.

    The reddit thread is fuuull of hate for Hennessey (can't really blame them, he is a crook), but it's also mentioned that it's not an official record (for Guinness at least) . It has to be run a second time and then averaged and they have to have made at least 30 of the vehicles to be production (instead of just a one time deal that's going to explode after the first run)or something like that. This is a sick, sick car and I've always wanted to go by the shop in Houston, but I'd probably buy a Bugatti first :p aren't they rumored to be releasing a 1500hp revision this summer?

    Got to be a way to find out. There's an epic song in this video I wish I could find.

    BONUS: For those who care anything about Thoroughbred Racing, the most ungodly blast of raw power and will in the history of the sport occurs coming out of the second turn when Big Red himself comes from last to first to dominate the field.
