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. Only 29 of these cars will be built so if you have a million bucks laying around you might want to put your order in.

Transparent ($FREE) is the newest comedy drama series from the folks over at Amazon. Created by Jill Soloway who brought us Six Feet Under, it follows a family whose patriarch (Jeffrey Tambor) comes out as a woman to his now divorced wife and three children.

Why is at all the bad guys in the Bond movies get the cool cars. Just to prove my point, take a look at the kick-ass ride Mr. Hinx gets in the latest Bond flick, Spectre. While James Bond is driving an Aston Martin DB10 with a V8. Mr. Hinx gets the Jaguar C-X75 ($TBA) with a four-cylinder 1.6-liter turbo/supercharger combo, paired with an electric drive system. Before you get on the four banger, the C-X75 puts out a whopping 850 horses and can hit 100 mph in under six seconds. The sad thing is although both the Aston and the Jag are kind of cool, there are no plans to offer either car to the public.
