Top Gear Drives The Venom F5

Say hello to John Hennessy’s baby: a love letter to excess horsepower, but not in the form of a tuned truck or muscle car. This is the Hennessey Venom F5, an entirely bespoke extreme-engined hypercar capable of speeds in excess of 300mph. Powering it is an engine appropriately named ‘Fury’, a whopping 6.6-litre twin-turbo V8 producing 1817bhp. Weighing only 1360kg, the F5 is only 30kg heavier than a Ferrari F8 Tributo but with 1000bhp more. That equals some impressive performance figures: 0-62mph in 2.6s, 0-124mph in 4.7s, and an insane 0-250mph in 15.5s – that’s nearly twice as fast as a Bugatti Chiron… Right, enough comparisons, time to strap Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix to this rocket to see how it drives.
