Hennessey is appropriately teasing us to the upcoming introduction of the all-new Venom F5 during the SEMA show in Las Vegas on November 1 – and the world is of course eagerly awaiting to see if the world top speed production car record has indeed fallen.
Hennessey is an aftermarket specialist… with a twist. It’s known around the world for not only making some of the most powerful vehicles on Earth, but also for its wild assumption that a small outlet can challenge the grands and build the fastest vehicle on the planet. Its most famous work, the Hennessey Venom GT, a 1,451-horsepower (1,082-kilowatt) hypercar, has even delivered a top run of 270.49 miles per hour (435.31 kilometers per hour), claiming to be the world’s fastest car. Bugatti refutes that because it’s not a series production model, but rather a bespoke creation.
The Texas tuner with a knack for building supercars is now ready to again be the underdog that tries to win the match with style. And they’re going to attempt this via the all-new Venom F5, teased through a minute-long video that depicts the development, from conceptualization to production. We already know how the car looks like via renders, but now we have it on the road and in the metal. The new Venom F5 has dropped the Lotus platform of the GT and comes with its own unique architecture, aiming to reach 300 mph (482 kph), according to a previous teaser.
