As the old expression goes, live fast, die young and leave a good-looking corpse.

The 270-MPH Hennessey Venom GT, which will no longer be produced after first being released in 2010, checks all three boxes.

To mark the end of the line of the unofficial fastest production supercar in the world, Hennessey created a “Final Edition” Venom GT and finished it off in “glacier blue” paint with white stripes.

The final Venom GT — which has already been sold off for a cool $1.2 million — packs the same twin turbo V8 engine that the previous 12 models have had under their hoods and is also capable of churning out a near top-of-the-line 1,451 HP.

“We’ve attained some incredible achievements with the Venom GT,” said company CEO John Hennessey.  “It was always my dream to build the fastest car and we did just that. Our Venom GT retires as one of the fastest cars on the planet along with being one of the most exclusive.”

Rest easy, fast fella.
