The holy trinity of hypercars consist of three non-American players. That needs to be changed. IMMEDIATELY. That's because the new Hennessey Venom F5 has claimed a 301 MPH top speed (that's 481 KMH for you metric folks), making it the world's fastest road-legal car. We'll believe it when we see it, but given that Hennessey currently holds the Guinness World Record for the quickest production car from 0-186 MPH (300 KMH) and has shown that it can set a 270 MPH (435 KMH) top speed back in 2014, the 300 MPH mark may not be too wild of a goal.
Here's the Venom F5 in its prototype glory being rocked out to Aerosmith's "Dream On." It's an appropriate sound track as it reminds us to stay hungry and keep on dreaming until your dreams come true. We imagined that's what all the engineers, designers, and all the employees at Hennessey were doing as they slaved over hours creating what may just be America's first ever Hypercar.
