Hennessey announces Venom F5 with a projected top speed somewhere around 290mph

Hennessey is well known for their high-output engine modifications and the Venom GT supercar. So far the Texas based tuner/automaker has delivered 16 Venom GTs with production limited to 29 units.

Venom GT is one of the fastest(it did hit 270.49mph at Kennedy Space Centre earlier this year) and most expensive cars on the market, but there is always room for improvement when it comes to power and top speed.

Hennessey has now announced a new model called F5 that will be more powerful, faster and of course more expensive.

Details are limited, but the name F5 comes after the most powerful tornados on the Fujita scale. The 1,244bhp 7.0-litre twin-turbo V8 found in the Venom GT will be modified to produce more than 1,400bhp, while the weight will be under 1,300 kg, offering a very impressive power-to-weight ratio. Founder Jonh Hennessey has already mentioned that he believes 290mph will be possible, making it the fastest car in the world. Lets not forget that Bugatti Veyron successor is also in works.

The Hennessey F5 will unveiled next year with first deliveries in 2016. Planned production will be more than 30 units and each car is priced at more than $1.2M (£715k) before taxes.

The renderings you see here show a car quite similar to the current Venom GT with the headlights similar to the ones on new Corvette.
