Not only will the Hennessey Venom F5 Beat The Chiron, It Will Smash It
The Hennessey Venom F5 was announced in 2017 and unveiled the same year at the SEMA show in Las Vegas. The F5 is currently being tested. The F5 is due to be a $1,600,000 US dollars hypercar. It will be the first road legal 300 mph + car ever made. Hennessey will claim their title back as the fastest car in the world and will conquer the Chiron.

The engine is a Chevrolet based engine but tweaked up a bit. At 7700 rpm the Hennessey will produce 1600bhp and has a general statistic of 1800bhp. This engine has billet-aluminum machined 7.6-liter block with steel cylinder sleeves, a 9.3:1 compression ratio, and a dry-sump oiling system. As you may have noticed; unlike the Hennessey Venom which had a Chevy LS this doesn't. Instead it has a twin-turbocharged V8 that can produce 1,193 lb.ft. The F5 will be a 7-speed single-clutch semi-automatic but guess what! You can get it in a 6-speed manual! So far the car can do 301 mph but Hennessey have said that by the time it is launched it will be able to do 311 mph making it the fastest car in the world. It's expected to have better downforce than a Chiron and will accelerate faster than the Chiron. Hennessey claim that the F5 will be able to do 0-60 in under 3 seconds as most hypercars can do now. However, the Hennessey will be capable of 0-186 mph in just 10 seconds and 0-249 mph in just 20 seconds!

How will it conquer the Chiron?
Well, we already know that the F5 has a higher top speed than the Chiron and will be able to reach it in less than 50 seconds on a flat asphalt straight track. I'm going to compare the Chiron as standard and the F5 as standard. Also, the Bugatti Chiron that recently hit 304 mph which was a tuned Chiron and not a standard. COMPARISON STARTS HERE. The top speed on the F5 is 311 mph while the Chirons is 261 mph so there is a very large difference in speed. The F5 will be faster. The Hennesey Venom has much higher accelerations up to 3 seconds faster than the Chiron. The F5 also has better downforce however, on the interior I prefer the Chirons easily as the F5 just looks bland and has way to much carbon fibre in it which moves on to weight were once gain, the Chiron wins. The Chiron costs $3,400,000 US dollars while the Hennessey will cost $1,600,000 US dollars so the F5 is cheaper. There's a easy conclusion to be made here. If you have enough money to get the Chiron you'll be getting a car with luxurious interior as well as high performance. If you bought a Hennessey Venom F5 then you are getting the fastest road legal car in the world with less luxurious interior.
Thank you for reading, I know that I said I wouldn't post until Monday but then I found out about the F5 and its incredible abilities. As always, have a great day!
