The design of the newest F5 also features active zero which yields a coefficient of drag at only 0.33.
According to the CEO and company founder, John Hennessey, he stated that they have designed F5 to be timeless so it’ll have a level of design and performance that’ll be unmatched. From its chassis to the engine, he added that F5 is a new car that is built and designed from the ground up. They expect that Venom F5, which is named for the most powerful speed winds of tornado on Fujita scale to the first ever road car that’s capable of achieving over 300mph and have closely worked with Pennzoil to get everyone across the finish line.
The combination of All-American, low drag, and light weight horsepower will deliver a whole new hypercar performance level. Acceleration from 0-186mph will be less than ten seconds, which makes the all new Venom quicker compared to the current Formula 1 vehicles. The Hennessey Venom F5’s top speed is said to exceed 300mph and its base price is $1.6M.
