The World’s Fastest Car

Just last week, Februrary 14th to be exact,  the John F. Kennedy Space Center in Florida became the test site for a run of the Hennessey Venon GT performance car. The independently tested speed  result was 270.49 MPH. This pushed out the Bugatti Veyron  with its speed of  231 MPH.

You will experience the closest  thing on earth of being rocketed into space with the sounds of this powerful car. The test was completed on the 3.2-mile shuttle landing strip in Florida.  Seems appropriate!  It is now the world’s fastest production car, though not yet recognized by the Guinness World Records.

        We flew NYC to Dubai and then on to Ahmedabad. I wanted to spend a couple of days there on the way home. Wanted to do the camels, desert, and lunch in the tent, and the world’s largest building. Not much interested in the malls, but some students told professor, that the people are not very welcoming to Americans. He was not interested then. I know you are British but what do you think? I loved the airline..food, service , room and we didn’t upgrade at $900!

      • I’ve never seen any evidence of people not making Americans welcome, I have only ever seen people being made very welcome in the UAE. But then, I’m not American so I can’t give you first hand experience 😦 I think you’d really enjoy it, the architecture is amazing, but only if you take the time to dig into the culture and history and see as much of that as you can too. The history of the UAE is so interesting but most people think it’s all just about the shopping!!

        Now you have wet my curiosity. It looks as if we are going to Indian again next January….yeah and we will fly through the UAE. Maybe I can tempt him with a stopover. It isn’t that we want special treatment, it is just that D. always says, “I don’t want to be anyone’s political statement!”

      • And you don’t need to be, at the end of the day, they need and court tourism, they can’t afford to offend, just as visitors to their country need to be aware of their traditions. If you can stopover in Abu Dhabi, or take a trip from Dubai, you must visit the Grand Mosque and take a guided tour. AMAZING!!

        Architect would love that…he doesn’t like camels and desert lunches….we just like to putter about when we travel. Husband doesn’t like tours much, we don’t need super extravagant hotels . we like to be with the people. I know the people there are different from any place we have gone. There is no poverty, right? Did you see the Sex in the City girls going to Dubai? $10,000 a night suite? I went to Wikipedia. . . . what period of history did you think interesting?

      • The tour at the Grand mosque isn’t too long but very interesting. The history of the UAE changed dramatically in the sixties when they discovered oil and the growth since then has been phenomenal. Look up wind towers and the history and design of wind towers, it’s so interesting.
        The Sex in the City depiction was so fake and offended people out there!
        There is poverty and disability but it’s just all hidden away.

    Anne, just found this one and HAD to reblog it for my cousins, the Green Brothers, who were NASCAR drivers in the past. I think Chris still drives at Kentucky Speedway, but no more National races. Age and too much good food.
