Hennessey Venom F5
The limited-edition Venom F5 packs a rear mid-mounted 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged Fury V8 engine that produces 1817 horsepower and 1193 lb-ft of torque, making it the most potent non-electrified sports car in the world. To handle that massive torque, engineers chose a specially designed semi-automatic single-clutch 7-speed gearbox with paddle shifters on the steering column. With its impressive power-to-weight ratio, the Venom F5 has some equally impressive performance stats. Acceleration to 62 mph (100 kph) takes 2.6 seconds; 124 mph (200 kph) comes up in 4.7 seconds; 186 mph (300 kph) in 8.4 seconds; and 249 mph (400 kph) in less than 16 seconds. Hennessey estimates the Venom F5 will ultimately hit 311 mph. Only 24 Venom F5s will be built to customer specifications at a starting price of $2.1 million each. Deliveries of the Venom F5 began in the last quarter of 2021.
