Hennessey Venom F5 set to debut at SEMA Show

Much like how the Venom GT went head to head against the Veyron, the Venom F5 will have to beat the Chiron in terms of outright top speed.

Hennessey Performance's latest images are the surest indication yet that the Venom F5 hypercar will hit 300mph. That is a big number, one that dwarves the 431.072 km/h set by the Veyron Super Sport, the current Guinness World Record holder. We won't have long to find out if Hennessey has set a new production vehicle record as the company will be making an official announcement later today, so stay tuned.

The images show the rear of the auto, one of which is adjacent to a road sign reading "speed limit 300".

The F5, Hennessey says, will surpass the GT's horsepower, have a top speed exceeding 290 miles per hour, plus improved aerodynamics and ultra-light weight to boost performance.

Similarities can be seen between the new images and early renders of the Venom F5 - most notably the light graphics have been carried forward. This points to a top speed of 300mph which inches towards 500kmph. It released updated teaser images in June and announced plans to put the vehicle into production, with founder and CEO John Hennessey describing the project as "sophisticated aggression on wheels". Tipping the scales close to two tonnes, even with 1479bhp, the Chiron somehow looks likely to be well beaten on the power-to-weight front. We say this as the F5's predecessor, the Venom GT, used such an engine with that level of power.

Bugatti claims the Chiron's top speed is around 290mph, but it's limited by tyre technology - the company claims there are no tyres capable of withstanding such speeds while also surviving everyday use.
