John Hennessey knows a thing or two about getting cars to go very, very fast. The fastest car to ever cross the quarter mile here at Inside Line was the 2006 Hennessey GT1000. It was a vicious twin-turbo monster not even remotely designed for these short quarter-mile blasts that, despite hitting 60 in only 3.7 seconds (3.4 w/rollout –.2 seconds slower then the McLaren MP4-12C) crossed the finish line at 137.4 mph. 7 mph faster than the McLaren.
Now Hennessey can add another precious trophy to their cabinet: Fastest Standing Mile Ever. A Twin-Turbo Ford GT, owned by Mark Heidaker and driven by Sean Kennedy, just managed 257.7 mph in the standing mile.
