Hennessy has it right, if you want to be called the fastest production car on the planet, take it to the track and prove it. Hennesy took their version of the Venom GT ($1.1 million) to the United States Naval Air Station in California and in two miles hit a top speed of 265.7 mph. Now the Veyron Super Sport ran 267.8, but they limit their production cars to 258 mph. The Hennessy Venom GT has a twin-turbo 7-liter V8 that puts out 1,244 horses.

Due to the thermal mass of the concrete, available sun shade, and the insulating effect of the pool, the 6.5kw solar array on the roof provides almost all of the power the home requires.
Writer and Director Luc Besson has worked on movies like La Femme Nikita, The Professional and the Fifth Element. So you have a pretty clear idea where he's taking his latest female action hero, Lucy ($TBA). Scarlett Johannson plays Lucy a drug mule who obtains super human powers from drugs smuggled in her body. Where the rest of us can only use 10% of our brains, her brain power is increasing by the minute and only time will tell how powerful she will become. This movie looks like it has a lot of elements from the Matrix, but enough originality to make it worth seeing.
