1. Hennessey Venom GT

If you are into domestic performance cars, you certainly know about Hennessey from Texas. In last few decades, they have been one of the biggest names in aftermarket muscle and performance car parts, conversion kits and engines. And since 2011, they have been the supercar manufacturers of the Venom GT.

The Venom GT is not a 100-percent American car, but more of a British-American hybrid. They based it on the Lotus Elise, but significantly modified it. They widened and stretched it using an updated suspension, brakes, design, and drivetrain. Practically everything is different from the original car.

The power comes from a 7.0-liter LS2 V8 engine with three power levels, 800 HP, 1,000 HP, and 1,200 HP. The Venom GT was available as a coupe or convertible. However, the biggest point is that it held the world record for the fastest production car, going from 0 to 186 mph with an average time of 13.63 seconds. They ended production in 2017 after building just 13 cars.
