hennessey performance has stated that its new ‘venom F5’ will be one of the fastest cars on the planet when it is presented at SEMA on 1st november 2017. the hypercar is believed to have around 1500 bhp while weighing in at less than 1300 kg meaning that it may be capable of topping the ‘venom GT’s’ top speed record of 270mph. there are several similarities between this image and the earlier renders of the original ‘venom’, with stylish rear lights being the most notable feature created from the rendered images.



additional noteworthy items include the rear wing dominating the back of the vehicle, and the all-carbon rear diffuser setup suggesting that the final car will be very close to the renders. to date no manufacturer has managed to successfully create tires that can survive 300 mph while remaining usable on the road. however, if hennessey has managed to overcome this obstacle it will be very interesting news for car enthusiasts indeed.

  • Just what he world needs .. a 300 mph car.
