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.

This is totally not going to be vaporware like SSC, right? Doing 300+ on street tires when Veyron and Chiron, engineered by the largest carmaker in the world as a CEO pet project with unlimited resources, require bespoke rubber.

Smart man, he's right about the need for it to be an exclusive, limited run, for good reason... 311mph, it's a useless ability, it almost makes this car pointless beyond the initial hype, brand optics, and build experience. Other than an expensive suicide machine, there's really no reason to buy something like this. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy it exists, I love speed, I'm just thinking of the practicality of having that ability, and the price you pay is other areas to achieve it...and never get to use it in most cases. The fact that anyone can pilot such a dangerous machine as long as they have the money, is a bit scary too. Imagine some 65 year old businessman coming up behind you on the road with this, it's almost the same as someone pointing a gun at you...and lol@Mr.Hennessey, this is most definitely a "flex", a good one too.

It's kind of ironic when you think about it. Rich young boys will buy these 300 mph cars and never drive them over 200 mph. They will purchase them for bragging rights and to date Instagram girls looking for a sugar daddy.

I know a lot of people are wary of what John Hennessy can and cannot do to a high-performance car. Myself, I hope that this car becomes a reality and it becomes a true competitor in the hypercar genre. It's great to see Americans building really good fast cars.

There's a lot of Ferrari and lotus design in this car, but looking like a toy from an Easter egg, I mean the way basic shapes have been developed. This is not a negative statement, just a first sight sensation

if you had the money to buy one of these cars would you risk your life opening up to 300 mph? one thing goes wrong your probably going to die......just a thought, when your dead it makes no difference how much money you had cause you cant spend a single penny

With the reputation on a worldwide stage now, hopefully he’s got all the shenanigans out of his operation. I’m from Houston and part of the “aftermarket” world. I didn’t know his suspect handling of some customers was so well known all around the world.
