5:14 am
>> reporter: african-american artists like kerry james marshall and sam gilliam are now seeing their works sell for millions at auction. this month of leigh's sculptures just set a record for the artist selling for nearly a million. >> do you think the change in the art world is irreversible? >> i do. i think what's happening with the black artists in the art world in the u stais are globally more of a correction than a fad or a fashion and we're unstoppable now, i really do. >> reporter: last month the team at stratton studios in philadelphia put the finishing touches on brick house. >> i think she's stunning. she's a goddess, an americans goess. >> reporter: the piece was palked up and carefully hoisted onto a flatbed truck for the trip to new york. >> they will turn it on its signed go down the highway.

this year's new york international auto show begins its final weekend here in the city today and it ends the big auto show season across the nation. scores of innovative models are on display. but car lovers have yet to see one particular variety of vehicle, here or anywhere else -- a production automobile with a top speed of over 300 miles per hour. don dahler is here with the intense race to make it happen.
5:20 am
i hope you have your seatbelt. don, good morning. >> good morning. to give you a little perspective, 300 miles per hour is approaching half the speed of sound it. may be hard to imagine what that would feel like behind the wreel of a car. there are three companies on the road closer to finding that out. we visited one headquarters in texas. this is what hennessey performance engineers is known for, obscene speed, turning hot cars into super cars, and the exorcist is one of their most popular, a modified camaro that goes from zero to sixty in less than three seconds. its top speed, 217 miles per hour. but that's not the texas-based company's fastest model. five years ago founder and ceo john hennessey set a new record for speed in a production vehicle with his 270-mile-an-hour venom g.t., tantalizingly close to the magic
5:21 am
number. why is 300 the holy grail? >> i think, you know, at some point in time, maybe 100 years ago, there was the first car that could hit 100 miles an hour. then fast forward into the late '90s and what was the first production car that you could go buy that, you know, could break 200 miles an hour. and so i think we're now kind of on the cusp. i know we've got a car that's got that capability. >> reporter: that car is the venom f5. >> i'm fascinated by the fact that you've designed this from the ground up. >> very, very driver focused kind of like a race car. >> but focused in terms of one purpose, and that's -- >> -- to go fast. >> reporter: it has a 7.6 liter twin turbo v8 engine, cranking out more than 1600 horsepower.
5:22 am
designers were told form had to follow function. the car had to weigh less than 3,000 pounds but look amazing. but there are other entrants in this race to 300. famed super carr makers koenigsegg and bugatti are also vying to be the first. >> you're up against big names. >> sure. >> and they have big resources behind them. >> sure. >> you don't. you're a single company here. >> right. >> you're putting all this financing up yourself. >> right. >> do you stand a chance? >> oh, i love being the under dog. i koomd of feel like a 300-mile-an-hour production series road car is kind of the automotive mt. everest. >> reporter: travis okulski is editor in chief of road and
5:23 am
track magazine. >> so how much of a disadvantag known for tuning cars for a very, very long time. they just recently built their own car, the venom. so building their own car from the ground up for the first time ever and claiming that it's going to hit 300 miles an hour is a really, really big challenge. >> and what is it that's so challenging about hitting the number? >> where do i start? if something were to come apart and fail at that speed, it would be catastrophic. those cars generate a lot of heat. heat management is huge. if it gets to hot, it will explode. when you're driving into the air, the air will act like a wall. it will push the car to the ground or create lift. if you drive too fast, the car will drive away. you need a mixture of great
5:24 am
aerodynamic packaging, heat packaging, and 1500 to 1800 horsepower in order to make this sort of thing happen. >> reporter: but no less a factor, location, location, location. it takes a lot of straight road to hit 300 miles per hour. hennessey had access to a runway at florida's kennedy space center to reach 270 in the devel venom gt, but he'll need more than that to reach this goal. >> well, to run 300 miles an hour, we're going to need to have a public highway that we can work with the state, whether it's texas or nevada where we can close the highway to run. we're talking three, four, five mile straights. the problem is the road has gradient and it's bumpy. it's very unpredictable to do it on the road. achieving top speed is going to be very, very difficult to do
5:25 am
wherever they can do it. >> reporter: building a car from the ground up that can go that fast is one thing. you'd think finding people to plop down $1.6 million plus to buy one is another. think again. hennessey says his first production run of 11 venom 55s are already spoken for. >> you have a helluva speeding ticket to hang with it. you've got something no one else has. you're paying for the bragging rights. it's incredible not just by the standard of automotive but the standard of all engineering. >> reporter: but for john hennessey whose love of fast cars started when he was a child, the venom f5 means more than bragging rights. it means his family name could be considered among the automotive a greats.
5:26 am
>> we talk to our kids that the f5 is our legacy vehicle. it's the vehicle that 50 dwreers from now when i'm gone that's the vehicle that people would be kind of the pinnacle of the vehicles that we've built. >> pennzoil believes in him and he believes he'll make 300 about miles an hour. >> i hope he makes it. i would drive that to the grocery store. >> so would i. >> proudly. it would be a quick trip. >> how many are out there or will be? >> just one right now that they're creating. they're building them in europe. they're also putting it together here in texas that and we get to follow all of this with you? >> yes. we're going to revisit this when he makes the run. >> how about that. >> i would be there in a heartbeat. my wife would not want me to do it. >> do it anyway. >> good stuff. >> all right. donny. another achievement in technology comes from an unexpected source. a group of preteen scientists who managed to send their experiment to the stars.
5:27 am
's right. you heard me right. they're going there. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday." so after you did the first one -- you said i'm not going to do this again. >> yeah. i didn't think it would be necessary. but it turns out now that we're not having a comedian at the din e it felt like it was time to -- >> your answer to a national call. >> it's a national call. >> you have vacancy in the national fabric. >> basically doing the lorld's work here. >> so what can we expect? long list of celebrities? >> long list of special guests, we're doing some great music. ultimately we're honoring journalists and -- journalism is under siege for sure, so we want to highlight them. but ultimately we want to have a fun night. we want to provide an alternative event that's joyful and celebratory and ridiculous
5:28 am
and all the things that go into it. >> don't we need fun, too, samantha? the country is so divided and so nasty and so mean. so how do you navigate those waters? how do you know how far you can go to the line without crossing it? >> as you know, gayle, i'm a big believer in the grand ol' first amendment, so we push limits on our show for sure, but we work our way through very difficult material an we try to highlight things that are important to us, but we bring humor to it too. i feel like it's a way for people to get to understand or process the things that are happening right now, which can be very devastating. i think through the lens of humor is a good way for people to -- >> how long have you been doing political humor? >> i've been doing it for so long. >> it says in the notes 16 years. >> 16 years, ya i. >> how has it done since you've done it and under this president? >> it's changed a lot under this president. to simone, i leave the van gogh.
