Hen­nessey Venom F5*

Automobile - - New And Future Cars -

ON SALE: 2019

BASE PRICE: $1.6 mil­lion (est)

Build­ing off the suc­cess of the tremen­dously fast Venom GT that claimed the pro­duc­tion car speed record five years ago (though Bu­gatti would quar­rel with that), the forth­com­ing Venom F5 is the Texas per­for­mance ped­dler’s sec­ond hy­per­car. Com­pared to the Lo­tus-based Venom GT, the F5 is a ground-up, clean-sheet de­sign with a be­spoke chas­sis. A unique 8.0-liter twin­turbo V-8 spits out what Hen­nessey claims to be 1,600 hp and 1,300 lb-ft, man­aged by ei­ther a seven-speed sin­gle­clutch semi-au­to­matic or six-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion. For the very brave (or the very stupid), the F5 will re­port­edly top out at 301 mph.
