Hennessey Venom F5 Makes First Video Appearance To The Tune Of Aerosmith

If there’s such a thing as being crazy, stupid fast, the new Hennessey Venom F5 certainly qualifies, to the delight of pretty much every petrolhead on Earth.

With an estimated top speed of 300+ mph (486 km/h), the Venom F5 is not only considerably quicker than the Bugatti Chiron, but also the old Venom GT, the Koenigsegg Agera R and pretty much anything else you can think of.

Power comes from a new twin-turbo V8 engine, with more than 1,600 HP being sent to the rear axle exclusively, which is pretty wild in today’s automotive landscape.

Either way, it’s said to hit 186 mph (300 km/h) from a standstill in under 10 seconds and will get from zero to 400 km/h (249 mph) and back to zero in less than 30 seconds, again, besting both Bugatti and Koenigsegg.

As for the video, it takes us through the design process, before showing us some driving footage. Safe to say, this thing belongs on the open road.

    Thats not a real car!
    But that is a very much like a Starbucks cup for sure. lol

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    It’s CGI

      Well, the article _is_ virtually correct!

    They have a 1:1 static foam model and a CG model to overlay in video. Not one single piece of hardware has been shown, and nothing to back up their 301mph claim. Hennessey is blowing smoke.

  • GobbleUp

    Last time I licensed this track it was $1M fee. Perhaps this is actually a voice over so less cost and not “Aerosmith” but perhaps funds better spent on a real car vs cg and foam?

    its electric. not even an sound clip of the motor. not that it would sound good anyway. i like the first venom much better. this one is too vette like.

    Forza looks better than that!! lol!!

  • SteersUright

    LOVE this car. Great work and wish i could afford it. But isn’t Hennessy a very troubled brand with some prior lawsuits, or was that Saleen? I can’t recall.

    • LWOAP

      It was Hennessey. If I recall, they had at least at dozen or so lawsuits filed against them since their inception. Almost all of them were from unhappy customers who tried to get their money back after they were not satisfied with the work done to their cars. I have no idea what Saleen is up to these days. I haven’t heard much about them.
