Hennessey Venom F5

Hennessey Performance is looking to hold onto its claim to fame as the builder of the world’s fastest production car. The Texas-based company, which set an unofficial 270 mph mark with its $1.2 million Venom GT, has confirmed production of its next supercar: the Venom F5.

The Venom GT earned a Guinness record for the fastest 0-300kmh sprint, which it did in 13.63 seconds. Hennessey sold 13 Venom GTs, split between coupes and open top spiders.
Specifications for the Venom F5 haven't been revealed but Hennessey predicts that it will get close to 300 mph, if not break it. The Venom GT featured a 1,244 hp 7.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8.
The 1,200 hp Bugatti Veyron Super Sport currently holds the official top speed record at 268 mph per Guinness rules. The Venom GT’s record was a one-way trip down the Kennedy Space Center’s old 3.2-mile-long Space Shuttle landing runway.

The price and start of production date for the Venom F5 have not been announced.
