We were all wondering who would shut up the bragging rights of the Bugatti company. The Koenigsegg Agera tried its best but their hearts were broken when Bugatti replied with a record of 271 mph with their latest car the Bugatti Chiron. Now, there is a new kingpin and it is called the Hennessey Venom F5.
Its incredible V8 engine generates a total of 1,600 horsepower and can go up to 300 mph or 435 kmph approximately, crushing the Bugatti Chiron’s 1,500 HP and 261-plus mph. The Venom F5 can go from zero to 100 kmph in 2.0 seconds.
The Venom F5 uses a 7-speed single-clutch semi-automatic transmission with paddle shifters and has a 6-speed manual transmission which are both optional and dependent on the customer’s interest. It has a total fuel tank volume of 7.0 litres. The body is made almost entirely of carbon fibre, giving it a total weight of 1,338 kg with fluids.
For now, the 300 mph estimate given by the Hennessey company still remains a claim because it has not been pulled off in real life. But it remains a bad boy when talking about the fastest cars on the planet.
Apart from the fact that it is a fast car, it is also a sight to behold with its sleek, low body and amazing design. It has a very scary price tag which is at $1.6 million. But the Venom F5 looks like it is worth every penny because of the great quality it has. It looks like Bugatti will be hiding their faces for a while.
