The fastest car in the world is getting even faster, as the Texas-built Hennessey Venom GT is getting more power. In fact, the car will see a performance boost of 207 HP over the old version of the car, bringing its total HP to 1,451.

This means that it can now run E85 FlexFuel, which will allow boost on the twin-turbo 7.0-lliter engine, bringing the psi up from 19 to 26. The newly updated version of the car is projected to go from zero to 60 mph in just 2.4 seconds, and zero to 200 mph in 12.8 seconds, with the car topping out at 280 mph. This will be one of the last Venom GTs to be released in 2016, after which the company will move on to the Venom F5.
