Hennessey Venom F5

Step aside Koenigsegg One:1, it looks like you’ve met your match. Car world, meet the Hennessey Venom F5, successor to the record breaking Venom GT. As if 270 mph and 0-200mph in 14.5 seconds wasn’t fast enough – according to Hennessey, the F5 will not only trump the top speed records of the GT but also the acceleration as well. This new breed of hypercar is all about one thing: Speed.

Sticking to the traditional route of power train (as opposed to the hybrids such as the P1 and 918), the F5 will have a twin turbo V8 that could potentially boast up to or exceeding 1400bhp, all the while still remaining under 1300kg. And the best is still yet to come, as it will be available with both a single clutch paddle shift and a traditional manual transmission! Finally, a company that took note of the fact that some people still fancy a good old manual gearbox!
