Hennessey Performance have a successor to its already mental Venom GT. So what do you do when you already have a mind boggling US supercar, add more power of course. They say that the Venom F5 will have 1400bhp which they hope will blow the Venom GT’s speed records out of the water.
Hennessey have said that they have increased the size of the V8 engine’s twin turbochargers on the same block thats used in the GT. The surrounding bits and pieces, fuel system and inter coolers etc… have been upgraded to handle the extra stress. But power wont get you all the way, the F5 needs to be able to fight the laws of physics and they aim to do that by reducing the drag coefficient to below 0.40, while retaining a massive amount of download
The final part of the puzzle is weight and Hennessey F5 is going to be around 1300kg, which sadly is a minor increase over the GT’s weight of 1244kg. The Venom F5 is due to be offically unveiled in 2015, with the planned 30 cars to be delivered in 2016. And if you want one, you can expect to pay more that the Venom GT’s $1.2m price tag.
