The goal is not just to be fastest, but to be the fastest road car on Earth, the number spot has been held by Bugatti for a while even though fellow American hypercar SSC Tuatara stood at that number one spot but was nullified and Rimac Nevera now the fastest production car. Hennessey Venom F5 which is by far from looks a fine aesthetic with the dna of speed and performance.
First unveiled to the world in Las Vegas at SEMA show in 2017, a pure carbon chassis that was without engine. Hennessey Venom F5 whose name is from the the highest tornado or rather most dangerous tornado rating, F5. No wonder, pure danger has been developed with Hennessey in-house-built engine ‘fury’ with top speed 310 mph. The absolute goal would be to reach the 300+ mph mark. Under the hood of the street legal American hypercar is a 6.6L twin-turbocharged V8 engine mated with a 7-speed-single-clutch automated manual transmission gearbox cranking 1817hp and 1193 pound-feet of torque, blistering 0-124 mph in 4.7 seconds. The numbers are outrageous when considering but sure what do expect when the goal is high up enough that jumping doesn’t result in getting a hold of the pursuit, rather flying on land makes the goal within reach.
It would be a sheer joy to get behind the wheels or owning one but 24 units at $2.1 million price tag has been sold out so no chance except when the Hennessey Venom F5 is up for auction. 12 units for the United States of America and 12 units for the world. Opening up the butterfly doors into the cockpit is a dashboard without button but a steering wheel that is race focused with all control functions on it, driving just requires absolute eye on the road and hands on the steering.
“Our customers love speed, so we’re fired-up to push the boundaries of what’s possible to attempt the world’s fastest production car record, but the Venom F5 is about more than just speed and power. This car will handle superbly, quality is exceptional, there are more than 3,000 bespoke parts, materials are exquisite, everything is a fitting tribute to 30 years of the Hennessey brand.”
