January 10, 2013. HOUSTON, Texas – Hennessey® Performance (HPE) today announced that on January 10, 2013 its street-legal Venom GT® supercar accelerated from 0-300 km/h in just 13.63 seconds, thus establishing the vehicle as a new record holder according to Guinness® WORLD RECORDS (GWR). The acceleration time was an average of two runs made in opposite directions within one hour and validated by a VBox 3i GPS-based data logging system. VBox officials were on hand to certify the numbers as required by Guinness® rules. The first run was completed in 13.18 seconds with a 4 mph tailwind. The second run was made in 14.08 seconds while encountering a 6 mph headwind. The resulting two-way 0-300 km/h average was 13.63 seconds.

Could that be the world's most flexible platform?
It's the basis for the Elise, Exige, race cars, Tesla EVs, and now the world's fastest car.
Colin Chapman is smiling, somewhere.

You're a little off guys, the purple car is one of about 6 Aston Martin DB6 Shooting Brakes, modified by Radford from standard DB6 coupes. The coupes were physically different from the DB5s mainly by the spoiler lip and flat Kamm panel in back, neither of which are on the wagon versions.

1973 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham. The stand-up hood ornament is added on. They didn't appear on production Cadillacs until late 1975. The wire wheel covers are also incorrect as they didn't debut until 1976.
