Hennessey Confirms Chiron-Challenging Venom F5 Debut At SEMA On November 1

Hennessey Performance will reveal the new Venom F5, a twin-turbo V8 hypercar to challenge the Bugatti Chiron, at SEMA in Las Vegas on November 1.

The Texan company hopes that the Venom F5 will be the fastest car in the world, beating Bugatti’s finest in outright speed, just as it did with its predecessor the Venom GT a few years back.

Unlike its predecessor, the new Venom F5 will ride on a bespoke carbon-fiber tub while power will come from a twin-turbo V8 that produces close to 1,500hp. All this power will be transmitted through a single-clutch paddle-shifter with Hennessey expected to offer a manual option as well.

Hennessey expects the new Venom F5 to be nearly half-a-tone lighter than the Chiron too which will help them significantly with their top speed goals. John Hennessey said that he expects his new baby to top out “in the 290mph range” during an interview with Top Gear magazine.

The new hypercar was designed by a new division called Hennessey Special Vehicles, with the production taking place at Hennessey’s facilities in Texas. All we have to do is wait for November to come to find out all the details.

    Amazing but we need to remember that the chiron is a luxurious masterpiece, and can’t be compared with this or any kind of hypercar!

      Chiron is in a class of it’s own.

    Isn’t Hennessey in financial trouble? I remember seeing something about them not finishing peoples cars and asking for more money for upgrades, and basically holding the customers cars to ransom. Or am I mixing them up with someone else?
