Hennessey is at SEMA in Las Vegas and at the show, it has rolled out the American hypercar that can shame a Bugatti Chiron. The Hennessey Venom F5 can reach over 300 mph according to Hennessey. It can sprint from 0-186 mph in under ten seconds.
It can reach 0-249 mph-0 in less than 30 seconds. It promises greater acceleration than modern F1 cards. Th car uses a custom chassis and carbon fiber body to deliver a very light 2,950-pound curb weight. That light weight is pushed around by a twin-turbo V8 engine that makes over 1600hp.
All that power goes to the rear-wheels alone and is put through a 7-speed single clutch paddle shift transmission. It’s hard to imagine going over 300 mph. I can’t wait to see Hennessey offer up a video that shows the car driven hard.Filed Under: Auto News
