It has been three years since the US coach Hennessey Performance showed the world its matagigantes, the Hennessey Venom F5, but on the occasion of the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, the Texas firm has just shown the new Venom F5, with benefits of true heart attack.
According to Hennessey, the Venom F5 is a hypercar designed and manufactured from scratch, with a single goal: to be the fastest street car in the world. Only 24 exclusive units will be manufactured, at a price of 1.6 million dollars each (around 1.4 million euros).
New chassis, new look or a carbon fiber body of the most aerodynamic (0.33 Cx) designed to create the minimum air resistance possible, are some of the features of this new F5, which also has active aerodynamics, such as most of its "competitors".
Bringing life to the model is a twin-turbo V8 engine (we assume that the same 7.0-liter V8 that announced the previous F5) of more than 1,600 hp, connected to a seven-speed automatic gearbox that sends all that force only to the rear axle. And all in a car that weighs 1,338 kilograms.
Hennessey Venom F5: 300mph Rival to the Bugatti Chiron
This combination of aerodynamics, brute force and a contained weight allows an acceleration of 0 to 300 km/h in less than 10 seconds, which according to Hennessey makes the Venom F5 a faster beast than a current Formula 1.
If this was not enough, the Texan brand also predicts a 0-400-0 km / h below 30 seconds (remember that the Bugatti Chiron achieved it in 41.96 seconds and the Agera R in 36.44 seconds) and a maximum speed of the order of 484 km / h. What a fool!
"We have designed the F5 to be timeless and that in 25 years it continues to have a level of performance and design that is unbeatable.The F5 is a completely new car, designed and manufactured from scratch, from the engine to the chassis. F5, named for the fastest-moving tornado on the Fujita scale, is the first road car capable of exceeding 482 km / h (300 mph), "says John Hennessey himself.
