Hennessey built the final Venom GT earlier this year, but the nameplate won’t be dead for long. In fact, Hennessey Performance Engineering teased its upcoming supercar, the Venom F5, and the teaser image asks more questions than provides answers.
Notably, the image features a 300 MPH speed limit sign. The obvious reason why Hennessey would include the signage? The Venom F5 will go 300 mph. If that is indeed true, it would make the F5 the world’s fastest production car. The Bugatti Chiron will likely claim that title next year, but Hennessey could spoil the party.
It’s interesting to note, Bugatti says the Chiron can go 300 mph, but no tire can withstand the forces at such high speeds. Perhaps Hennessey will use some sort of one-use rubber that can withstand the forces for one time? We don’t know, but it seems silly to tease such a speed without the car’s ability to accomplish it.
The Venom F5 will be completely street legal and the performance company previously said to expect 1,500 horsepower. Stay tuned for more information.
