|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.
