This is the Hennessey Venom F5, the world’s most powerful production car. The Venom F5 Roadster is based on the Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe – the two are nearly identical mechanically – yet distinguishing the Venom F5 Roadster from its fixed-roof sibling are several attributes that set the open-air model apart – physically, cosmetically, and emotionally.
Mid-mounted in the carbon-fiber monocoque chassis is Hennessey’s celebrated twin-turbocharged, 6.6-liter, ‘Fury’ V8 engine rated at an astonishing 1,817 bhp.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a robust automated single-clutch gearbox. With a dry weight of under 3,100 pounds, the Venom F5 Roadster promises phenomenal performance… and an engineered top speed exceeding 300 mph.
This makes the Hennessey Venom F5 faster than the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport and the Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut. Alex gives us a first look at why the Hennessey Venom F5 is one of the coolest cars in the world. Let us know what you think in the comments.
