You’re looking at the first production prototype of the Hennessey Venom F5 – the long-awaited 300mph+,1,817bhp all-American hypercar. Ready for some numbers? 0-62mph time of 2.6 seconds, followed by fireworks: 0-124mph in 4.7s and 0-250mph in 15.5s. That last figure? More than twice as fast as a Bugatti Chiron, and over seven secs quicker than a Koenigsegg Regera – the current 0-250-0mph champ. Target top speed is 311mph. There’s a lot more than that, so let Top Gear Magazine’s Jack Rix walk you around the car with the help of its creator, John Hennessey.
