Hennessey Venom F5 Worth $1.6 Million (Around Rs10 Crore ) Revealed At SEMA Show, Las Vegas.
Hennessey Special Vehicles unveiled the Venom F5 hypercar at the 2017 SEMA aftermarket trade show. The Hennessey Venom F5 is promising to take on the £2million Bugatti Chiron in a world record fight next year.
Hennessey Venom F5 has 7.4-litre aluminium V8 with two turbochargers that’ll churn out 1,600bhp. That’s good enough for a 0-186mph time of under 10 seconds – quicker than Lewis Hamilton’s championship winning F1 car.And it’ll hit its 301mph top speed – a record for a road car – in a little over 20 seconds, although you’ll need plenty of runway to max it out.
This record top speed did not make it into the Guinness World Record books, however, as the Venom’s run was only made in one direction and not both ways, as required to validate the record.
The car’s dramatic new design is sharp, sleek and also functional. Every line, curve and ridge has been engineered for the best aerodynamic performance.
Speaking at the car’s launch, John Hennessy, CEO said ‘We expect the Venom F5, named for the most powerful tornado speed winds on the Fujita scale, to be the first road car capable of achieving more than 300mph and have worked closely with Pennzoil to get us across the finish line’.
Adding, John Hennessey, Founder & CEO, Hennessey Special Vehicles said, “We’ve designed Venom F5 to be timeless so that in 25 years it will still have a level of performance and design that will be unmatched. The F5 is an all new car designed and built from the ground up.”
The Venom F5 will start at $1.6 million, and the company will only build 24 examples.And the hypercars will be made at the Texas factory with owner John handpicking the lucky few who can then choose from the £450,000-strong options list.It’ll then be made over the next three years with deliveries due from 2019.
