Recent tests of the “Holy Trinity” hybrid cars, videos featuring the “Hyper 5”, and spy pictures of the new Bugatti Chiron, have left poor old Lamborghini out of the spotlight. But they will have none of that, especially when next year is Feruccio Lamborghini 100th Birthday.

Hennessey-Venom-GT-2

The Hennessey Venom GT is not exactly lacking in the power department. With 1,244 hp, the twin turbocharged 7.0L LS2 V8 is enough to propel the Venom GT to an official recorded speed of 270 mph (435 kph).
