Venom F5

It seems that breaking the land speed record isn’t enough for Hennessey and their Venom GT. In fact, the car company has just announced plans for a updated, faster version of the Venom GT.

Talking to Top Gear, Hennessey confirmed the company’s plans to build a Venom GT that would make the existing GT look like small fry. And the name? They plan on calling this beast of a super car the Venom GT F5. We’re thinking the F stands for fast.

The main goal with the Venom GT F5 is to top the top speed of the Venom GT. Hennessey said that they would like to reach a top speed of a whopping 290mph (that’s 466,17 km/h to you and me). To refresh your memory, the top speed that the existing Venom GT reached was 270,4mph (or 435,16) – and with it, they took the land speed record.

Before Hennessey stepped onto the playground, the previous land speed record was held by Bugatti with their Veyron at 269,86mph (434,29km/h).  (more…)

Hennessey Venom GT – Still a Concept

Hennessey Venom GT Concept

Now I’m having a dilemma. I don’t know if I should choose a Bugatti Veyron or this beautiful Hennessey Venom GT which still a project to be released in 2009. Not that I would have the money to pay for it but it’s just that I can’t decide which is better. The Venom GT is powered by a Dodge Viper V10 8.4-liter engine that can sport 1,000 hp, allows you to choose from a manual six-speed gearbox or a sequential transmission and only weighs 1,225kg. Math is really easy this time, with a 1.225kg/hp ratio and that’s great.

If you need to see how fast this baby is going to be how does 2.5 seconds for to reach 100km/h? How about 14seconds for 300km/h? Would that impress your “co-pilot”? You’ll have to agree with me, if this is how it’s going to look Bugatti Veyron has a very good competitor.
