Hennessey’s Fastest Camaro Totaled

After setting a new world record with the Ford GT that clocked 430.7 km/h (267.6 mph) on the Texas Mile, Hennessey was struck by bad luck, as their fastest Camaro ever made was totaled, trying to beat its own record.

The heavily modified Camaro was rated at 2,800 hp, and it managed to hit a 423.6 km/h (263.2 mph) record speed on the one-mile race last year. The team wanted to see if they can beat the record this year.

As the car was speeding at a massive 386 km/h (240 mph), the driver lost control flipping the F-Body Camaro several times. As you can imagine, the car was totaled, now being an unrecognizable lump of burned and twisted metal. Luckily, driver Joey Huneycutt survived, suffering only minor injuries.
