YOU'RE WINNER! Kinda....

Isn't that feeling great when you break a world record, but it isn't official?

Slightly scooch over, Bugatti, as there's a new record breaking car on the block, the Hennessy Venom GT, which is now the fastest car on earth, as it can 435 kph. Only it's unofficial. The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, which went 431 kph will still be in the Guinness Book Of Records until the Venom is driven two ways, as it was disqualified because it only drove one way in the Kennedy Space Center, so you win this round Bugatti!

Sort of.

The Venom isn't actually a new type of car, it's just a Lotus Exige that's been stretched and had a 7L twin-turbo V8 engine stuck in it. The crazy thing about this car is that when world record runs are done, they are usually driven on an oval to build up speed, but the Venom started and stopped on a straight piece of tarmac, so it could smash the world record if they use an oval!

That doesn't make sense!
What do you guys think? Is it necessary to keep building faster and faster cars? Or will everyone use these crazy cars in the future? Tell us in the comments below!
