The Hennessey Venom F5 Sets Its Sights On Becoming World’s Fastest Hypercar

The Hennessey Venom F5 The low-slung hypercar—named after the highest rating on the Fujita scale of tornado strength—is gunning for the title of the world’s fastest production car. To do that, though, it will not only have to crack the magical 300 mph barrier but also best the 304.773 mph time set by the Bugatti Chiron SuperSport 300+ back in August 2019. It is equipped with a 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V8 that puts out a thumping 1,817 hp and 1193 lb-ft of torque. It is important to note that the Venom F5’s power output is also at least 240 hp more than what’s put out by the Bugatti Chiron SuperSport 300+.

Rory Reid from AutoTrader gets inside the Hennessey Venom F5 for a quick first drive while giving us his impressions about this impressive machine that claims to have a top speed of over 300 mph.
