Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE), a Texas based tuning house specialising in weaponising everyday high-performance cars and supercars like the 1,000 hp Chevrolet Camaro, has announced that they will be revealing an all-new hypercar, the Venom F5.
Inspired by the fastest and most vicious tornado on the Fujita scale, the F5 tornado, the Venom F5 is developed from the ground up by Hennessey and will take the fight straight to the Bugatti Chiron for the title of world’s fastest production series super sports car.
To achieve this goal, the Venom F5 will feature a unique chassis design, cutting-edge engine and aerodynamic profiles as well as an ultra-light weight body. Hennessey expects the Venom F5 be capable of speeds close to 300 mph (483 km/h). In comparison, the Chiron’s top speed is rated at 418 km/h.
“We are very excited about our F5 and that it brings forth an all-new design and chassis to achieve even higher performance through improved aerodynamics and technology,” said company founder and CEO, John Hennessey. “The best way I can describe the Venom F5 is that it is sophisticated aggression on wheels. We look forward to sharing F5 with the world later this year,” added Hennessey.
The Venom F5 hypercar will be built in Texas and is expected to debut end-2017. HPE has incorporated a new company to spearhead the development and sales of the Venom F5 – Hennessey Special Vehicles. Yeah, as if what HPE has been doing all these while is not special enough.
