Hennessey Venom F5

Apparently, the Venom GT’s title for world’s fastest production car – at 270.49 mph (435 km/h), by the way – didn’t quite satisfy Hennessey. The speed-hungry tuning house is already working on its successor, the aptly named Venom F5, 5 to denote the strongest tornadoes on the Fujita scale. With looks to match its advanced aerodynamics and a low curb weight thanks to the extensive use of carbon fiber and aluminum, this machine has a leg up on its predecessor from the get go, even before we mention the ludicrous estimated 1,400bhp churned out by its twin-turbo V8. So what will this amount of car get you? A blistering predicted top speed of 290 mph (466 km/h), at least on paper – finding a suitable road or track to test it yourself might prove… difficult.

Hit up Hennessey for details – $TBA (but likely over $1.2M)
