John Hennesey's 301mph Venom F5 - DriveTribe Exclusive
DriveTribe's Bill Caswell brings you an exclusive interview with John Hennessey about the world’s fastest production hypercar
DriveTribe witnessed the unveiling of the Hennessey Venom F5 hypercar live at SEMA. Its maker, John Hennessey claims it is the world’s first production car to crack the holy-grail speed of 300mph.
While this claimed top speed has yet to be proven, the numbers the F5 produces from its 1,600bhp; custom built 7.4-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine are simply staggering. In Vmax mode; 0-186mph is seen off in sub 10 seconds, 0-249mph flashes by in less than 30 seconds with a claimed top speed of 301mph.
We asked the question you’ve all wanted to know the answer to, can the F5 crack the 300mph barrier?
