The Bugatti Veyron Supersport has 1,200 horsepower and can go 267 MPH. The Hennessey Venom GT has 1,244 horsepower and can go 265. That's what the SSC Tuatara will have to beat when it goes into production. And with 1,350 horsepower on premium gas, it's on its way.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series always generates a lot of sports betting interest – especially in the States – and the 2013 season is proving to be no exception.
