A league of their own – the world's most powerful production cars

Although plenty of us won’t get a chance to plough down the Nürburgring or get behind the wheel of a hypercar in our lifetimes, it’s hard to deny our obsession with all things high-performance. The human race has spent decades perfecting 0-100km/h sprint times and figuring out how to generate maximum outputs with minimal weight. As we embark on a new decade of development, it’s safe to say the quest for perfection is far from over.

Hennessey-tuned Camaro exorcises the Dodge Demon – VIDEO

Hennessey Performance has picked up the gauntlet laid down by the Dodge Demon, outrunning the factory-fresh Fiat Chrysler dragster in a Camaro called 'The Exorcist'. Based on a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, The Exorcist has been boosted to 756kW and 1197Nm. The results are predictably impressive. The hotted-up Chevy ran a 2.1-second 0-60mph (0-97km/h) sprint, pulled to 100mph (161km/h) in 4.7 seconds and ran the quarter mile in 9.57 seconds at 236km/h.

Hennessey Venom GT sets 0-300km/h acceleration world record

The Hennessey Venom GT has set a new world record to become the quickest street-legal production car ever to make the dash from 0-300km/h. With Guinness World Records officials and VBox timing specialists on hand, the Venom GT set an official time of 13.63 seconds for the stratospheric sprint – the average of two runs completed in opposite directions along the runway at Ellington Airport in Texas (the first 13.18sec with a 6.5km/h tailwind, the second 14.08sec with a 9.7km/h headwind).
