Default 300mph Barrier Broken Again?

Since we're currently in the golden era of supercars, we're gettin' close now!

Has the Hennessey Venom F5 broken the holy grail of all speed records?

It's not the F5, but the barrier broken today down under:

THE FIRST 300mph WOMAN IN THE USA

Koenigsegg Have Done It! 278MPH!
Nitish Deshpande 18 hours ago

Quote:
A stretch of 11 mile in Pahrump, NV in USA was shut down for Koenigsegg to achieve this world record. This record is almost 10mph more than the previous record held by the Bugatti Veyron SuperSport.

Word is being spread around that he managed to top out at 285 mph during one of the runs. But there has to be another run in the opposite direction to make it count and that's why the final average is down to 277.9 mph
