Hennessey Venom F5 Unveiling Event - November 1st at 11 am

22 October, 2017, 01:03 | Author: Cecil Buchanan

Hennessey Performance has chosen this year's SEMA Show to unveil the new Venom F5, the successor to the Venom GT and contender to be the fastest auto in the world. The images released on the firm's Instagram account capture the rear of the vehicle, one with the F5 adjacent to a road sign reading "speed limit 300mph". That is a big number, one that dwarves the 431.072 km/h set by the Veyron Super Sport, the current Guinness World Record holder. It replaces the Venom GT, a supercar powered by a 1,451-horsepower, twin-turbo 7.0-liter V8 engine with a top speed of 270.4 miles per hour and a 0-60 time of 2.4 seconds. We won't have long to find out if Hennessey has set a new production auto record as the company will be making an official announcement later today, so stay tuned.

Other than these telling images, Hennessey has not revealed that much information about the new Venom F5.

The F5, Hennessey says, will surpass the GT's horsepower, have a top speed exceeding 290 miles per hour, plus improved aerodynamics and ultra-light weight to boost performance.

Under the hood will sit a 7.0-litre Chevrolet V8 engine, which we're expecting to produce more than 1,400bhp. There could be a clue in the name, as the Venom F5 is named after the F5 tornado which is the fastest and most powerful wind on Earth generating gusts between 261 miles per hour and 318 miles per hour. Whether they fit specific rubber to achieve a top speed record, and then supply customer cars with tyres suited to regular use, or seek-out a tyre supplier to make bespoke boots for the 300mph job, we'll no doubt find out.

According to representatives of Hennesey, the novelty can accelerate to 466,7 km/h, allowing it to become the fastest production vehicle. The Bugatti Chiron, the Veyron's successor, pushes out 1,479bhp, but with a weight of over two tonnes it's no lightweight.
