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!

All the specs aside, this car is out to be taken seriously, with its main mission to break its predecessors’ records; it seems as if this car is going to be another entry from Hennessey into the pages of Guinness. And for the price it’s going to be listed at, frankly it better perform. With the GT starting at $1.2 million, one can only imagine what it’s younger brother will be worth, especially considering all of the R&D that went into making this new monster.

Hennessey also claims that due to a new traction control system, the F5 will be able to deliver the same thrill as the GT but with better day-to-day drivability… But really, who are they trying to fool? Someone buying this car for its everyday drivability is like someone purchasing hand soap and then using it to clean their teeth… Yes, it might work, but why would you want to do such a thing?
This new rocket of a car is scheduled to be released in 2015 and made available to customers late 2016, it’s safe to say that 2016 is going to be an exciting year!
