For the first time, Hennessey introduced the Venom F5 at the end of 2017, and has already managed to conduct a demonstration of a hypercar throughout the US and all of Europe. However, the Texan company will have to create a production version of the model, and it is the engineers who are currently engaged in this work.

While the original Hennessey Venom GT was based on Lotus, the new F5 will have a bespoke design. In addition, he will get a lightweight and durable carbon fiber chassis.

Equipped with a Venom F5 7.6-liter V8 engine with dual turbocharging, which develops more than 1600 horsepower and 1760 Nm of torque. But at the same time, CEO John Hennessy had previously confirmed that the Venom F5 engine was tested at a power of more than 2000 horsepower!

With extraordinary performance and torque, Hennessey set ambitious goals – to overcome the barrier of 300 miles (482 km / h), and even get closer to the mark of 500 km / h. Moreover, according to the company, the new hypercar will be able to accelerate to 300 km / h in less than 10 seconds.

Interestingly, earlier the speed record was set by the Bugatti brand, which recently made a number of statements that they now focus not on speed, but on aerodynamics and controllability. However, a number of other manufacturers, including Hennessey, Koenigsegg Jesko and SSC Tuatara, started the race to overcome a barrier of 480 km / h.
