Hennessey are considering a Venom F5 Roadster
Hennessey are considering making a roadster verson of their upcoming Venom F5. The regular version is already trying to break a record by hitting the 301mph (484kph) barrier, with its mighty 7.4 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine.

Hennessey haven't announced a lot of information in the press release, but here is what we know so far:
The car is going to feature a new carbon fibre chassis that is being developed in Silverstone, England by Delta Motorsport. The structure of the Carbon Fibre tub is designed to allow the car to be used as a hardtop, or a convertible coupe.
Hennessey are currently committed to making coupe's throughout 2020, and say that they will only offer the Roadster version after the Coupe's are made. This is not likely to be something we will see until 2021, according to the American Hypercar manufacturer.
Hennessey have also said that there will only be 24 coupes that are going to be made; and only 24 Roadsters if they decide to go down that route. The regular coupe will cost $1.6 million, and the roadster is likely to cost a lot more.
