Hennessey Venom F5, the fastest hypercar in the world is coming?
Over the last few months, several speed records have been achieved by road hypercars, such as the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, SSC Tuatara and finally Koenigsegg Agera RS. While the first two cars are still under scrutiny to officially validate the result, the current speed record dates back to November 2017 when the Swedish brand's hypercar, at the controls of test driver Niklas Lilja, managed to reach 447.19 km / h on the 11-mile strip of Route 160 between Las Vegas and Pahrump, in the Nevada desert.

Two years after the first official presentation at the Geneva Motor Show, the historic preparer Hennessey could finally release on the market its first hypercar. Originally presented as a prototype during 2018, the car made headlines in the specialized press thanks to its ability to reach (on paper) the maximum speed of 482 km / h: a decidedly significant value but lower than the much discussed 544 km / h. h obtained and never certified by the SSC Tuatara. Now, after many years and numerous field tests, Hennessey Venom F5 should be able to overcome even the much-desired 500 km / h wall, thus distancing all rival proposals by different lengths.

Waiting for the presentation for next Tuesday 15, the new Hennessey stars and stripes will be powered by a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V8 engine capable of developing the enormous power of 1,817 horsepower with a maximum torque of 1,617 Nm. With a total weight of just 1,360 kilograms, about 700 kg less than its rival Bugatti, the new Venom F5 will have a torsional stiffness higher than any hypercar seen so far.

Over the past few hours, a new teaser has been published on YouTube that highlights the amount of carbon fiber used by the manufacturer to limit the overall weight of the car. Once again, the famous song "Dream On" by Aerosmith was used to testify the immense desire by the American brand to break the current speed record.

Few examples and price over a million

Price? Still not final, but some rumors show a list value of 1.4 million euros, with a circulation of just 24 copies. Our most loyal and passionate readers will surely remember Venom GT, the first car designed by the American tuner and built on the basis of a Lotus Exige. With a power-to-weight ratio of 1 kg / hp and a maximum output of 1,262 hp, the Venom GT represents an extremely immoderate road coupe from every point of view. Within a few days we will therefore understand if the Venom F5 will also follow in the footsteps of the first car to leave the Hennessey Performance factories. speed achieved by the fastest production car in the world.
