US based tuning company Hennessey Performance disclosed that that production of first carbon fiber chassis has begun for Venom F5 hypercar. The tuning company have already showcased Venom F5 at the end of 2017 made stoppage at United States and Europe. However, they have not built production-spec prototype but we can confirm that they are in process of doing so. This news was confirmed by John Hennessey during a chat on a podcast. The original Hennessey Venom GT was based around Lotus, but F5 will be a bespoke design.
Hennessey Performance promises that new hypercar would be lightweight and a strong carbon fiber chassis. Power in the Venom F5 will come from twin-turbocharged 7.6-liter V8 engine that generates an output in excess of 1,600 hp and 1,760 Nm of torque. Interestingly, Chief Executive of Hennessey Performance have confirmed that Venom F5 have been tested at over 2,000hp. Understandably, with such astonishing horsepower and torque figures, Hennessey Performance is claiming and setting mind-blowing performance figures.
Hennessey have not shied away from the fact that they want to cross 300 mph speed barrier. They even want to cross the 310-mph threshold with the Venom F5. In addition to it, they are claiming that it can hit 186 mph barrier in under 10 seconds. Bugatti may inadvertently gets dragged into the speed barrier but they have earlier stated that they are interested in it. Nonetheless, there are other automakers who are in the race. For example, there is Koenigsegg Jesko and SSC Tuatara are engaged in this battle and needs to be who wins the race.
