American company Hennessey will soon launch tests on its supercar Venom F5, which should become the fastest serial car in the world. The car needs to be ready in 2020.
According to the car manufacturer, the Venom F5 power unit will not use electrical engines. The supercar will receive a 7.6-liter V8 with two turbines that will develop over 2,000 hp. The final power will be announced later.
Active tests will begin in September, with Hennessey engineers trying to develop a maximum speed of over 500 km/h.
At the moment, the title “fastest serial car” belongs to the Koenigsegg Agera RS supercar, which has a power of 1,360 hp. In the autumn of 2017, it developed a special 18-kilometer stretch between Las Vegas and Paramy a speed of 444.6 km/h.
Hennessey Venom F5 is an upcoming American high-performance sports car manufactured by the newly founded vehicle-manufacturing company Hennessey Special Vehicles which was established in 2017. The Venom F5 will be the first vehicle to be developed and manufactured in-house by the company including the chassis, bodywork, engine and exhaust system developed by the company along with other bespoke components.
