In the process, Hennessey’s potent pony car became the first 2015 Mustang to break the 200 mph mark. Jay Leno was on hand to witness the record speed while filming an upcoming episode of Jay Leno’s Garage, which will air on CNBC later this year.

During both tests, speeds were validated with Racelogic’s VBox 3i GPS data logging system.
