Hennessey Special Vehicles unveiled the all-new Venom F5 hypercar at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV and the car is all set to make its European debut at Geneva Motor Show next month. The hypercar is designed and built from the ground up with one goal in mind: To be the absolute fastest road car on earth.
Hennessey and team have developed a completely new design, chassis and carbon fiber body focused on aerodynamics to achieve the lowest possible drag. The new F5 design features active aero that will yield a coefficient of drag of just 0.33.

Acceleration from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) is less than 10 seconds making the new Venom quicker than current Formula 1 race cars. Zero to 249 mph (400 km/h) and back to rest is under 30 seconds. The top speed of the Venom F5 is projected to exceed 300 mph.
The base price for the Venom F5 is $1.6 million US dollars.
