For the uninitiated, Hennessey Motors is an American car company that specializes in high performance cars. Founded by John Hennessey in 1991, the company is best known internationally for its modifications and improvements to sports cars, such as the Dodge Viper and Chevrolet Corvette.
Engine with more than 1,800 horsepower
But Hennessey also sells its own racing car: the Hennessey Venom GT, a racing car that comes in convertible and convertible configurations and held the title of the world’s fastest production car for a while. Only 30 copies of this car were produced by the car manufacturer. Designed to reach 500 kilometers per hour, the car is offered at a price of 3 million dollars, and each copy is specially ordered by its owner. Although the manufacturer is based in Texas, it opened a showroom in Miami last September to facilitate shipping on the east coast.
With an aerodynamic design and carbon fiber work, the F5 undoubtedly boasts an exotic design that turns heads. The heart of its performance is the 6.6-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that develops more than 1,800 horses, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 2 seconds.
When they can afford any car, it’s common for stars to turn to one-of-a-kind and low-end models to join a select owners’ club. The Hennessey Venom F5 fits this description very well.
