You’re looking at the first production prototype of the Hennessey Venom F5 - the long-awaited 300mph+,1,817bhp all-American hypercar. Ready for some numbers? 0-62mph time of 2.6 seconds, followed by fireworks: 0-124mph in 4.7s and 0-250mph in 15.5s. That last figure? More than twice as fast as a Bugatti Chiron, and over seven secs quicker than a Koenigsegg Regera - the current 0-250-0mph champ. Target top speed is 311mph. There’s a lot more than that, so let Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix walk you around the car with the help of its creator, John Hennessey.

  • Smart man, he's right about the need for it to be an exclusive, limited run, for good reason... 311mph, it's a useless ability, it almost makes this car pointless beyond the initial hype, brand optics, and build experience. Other than an expensive suicide machine, there's really no reason to buy something like this. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it exists, I love speed, I'm just thinking of the practicality of having that ability, and the price you pay is other areas to achieve it...and never get to use it in most cases. The fact that anyone can pilot such a dangerous machine as long as they have the money, is a bit scary too. Imagine some 65 year old businessman coming up behind you on the road with this, it's almost the same as someone pointing a gun at you...and lol@Mr.Hennessey, this is most definitely a "flex", a good one too.
