Aug. 13 (Bloomberg) –- Carmaker Hennessey announced that their upcoming model, the Venom F5, will have a top speed of 290 miles per hour, making it the fastest production car ever. Here’s the question: what is the point of owning a car whose top speed is too fast for Formula 1 racing, let alone any highway in the world? Video by: Alan Jeffries, Justin Beach (Source: Bloomberg)

You don't have to take the car to its limits, it's just cool to know that it's capable of those speeds

Solsist __ says:

Why make a car this fast?

Why the fuck not.

Solsist __ says:

"Only 270" bruh its fucking 270 mph

Deathbrewer says:

It's just for the super rich to brag to their other super rich friends that their car technically has a higher top speed than their friend's other super expensive car. It's just a pissing contest for people who will never get to use the car at max (most likely, unless they take it out to the Bonneville Salt Flats or something…) But yea, it's just for stroking your peen a little bit. "My Ferrari goes 240mph!" "Oh well that's nothing, my Hennessy can do 290mph!" That's all the purpose of it comes down to: a pissing contest for the super rich to feel a little bit less insecure next to their other super rich friends. And let's face it, if you need to do that to feel better, you DO have some insecurities or "small penis syndrome" going on somewhere…
