The new Hennessey Venom F5 definitely looks fast. And that’s because it is. Or will be, anyway. Currently in the final stages of development for delivery in 2016, the F5 is out to break the 270 mph speed record of its predecessor, the Venom GT. Helping it achieve this lofty goal will be a next-generation twin-turbo V8 powertrain pumping out upwards of 1,400 hp, tons of carbon fiber and aluminum pieces that keep the curb weight under 2,900 pounds, an improved drag coefficient of below 0.40, a GPS-based stability/traction control system, and a single clutch paddle-shift transmission with lightning-quick shift speeds. If you can’t wait that long, don’t worry — they’re still taking orders for the GT.
