Jalopnik Article On 300 MPH Tires:

From the Hennessey Press kit:
“The Venom F5 is an all-new hypercar designed and built from the ground up with one goal in mind: To be the absolute fastest road car on earth. Hennessey and team have developed a completely new design, chassis and carbon fiber body focused on aerodynamics to achieve the lowest possible drag. The new F5 design features active aero that will yield a coefficient of drag of just 0.33.

“We’ve designed F5 to be timeless so that in 25 years it will still have a level of performance and design that will be unmatched,” said John Hennessey, company Founder and CEO. “The F5 is an all new car, designed and built from the ground up, from the engine to the chassis. We expect the Venom F5, named for the most powerful tornado speed winds on the Fujita scale, to be the first road car capable of achieving more than 300 mph and have worked closely with Pennzoil to get us across the finish line.”

The Hennessey team is developing an all new, twin turbo V8 engine that will deliver over 1600 bhp. The Hennessey engine will be mated to a 7-speed single clutch paddle shift transmission and delivering power down to the rear tires. The Venom will also feature an all new light weight chassis and all carbon fiber body, which will give the F5 a curb weight of 2,950 lbs.

The F5’s combination of light weight, low drag and all-American horsepower will deliver a new level of hypercar performance. Acceleration from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) will be less than 10 seconds making the new Venom quicker than current Formula 1 race cars. Zero to 249 mph (400 km/h) and back to rest will be under 30 seconds. The top speed of the Venom F5 is projected to exceed 300 mph.

The base price for the Venom F5 is $1.6 million US dollars. The company plans to build 24 examples.”

Important Note! I chose to ignore downforce in this video, but forgot to mention in the video why. First off, there aren't published numbers for downforce at 300 MPH for the car. Second, this car (and others like it) has active aero to minimize drag (and consequently downforce) for top speed runs. Yes, you want the car to be planted, but anything extra is unnecessary for going in a straight line fast, and results in additional drag and rolling resistance. In reality there will be a decent amount of downforce, which would add to the rolling resistance number. But as you'll see from the math, aerodynamic drag plays a far, far larger role in how much power the car requires than rolling resistance does. Hope everyone's having a great day!

Can you do a video on the modded Ford GT that broke 300mph at the Texas Mile earlier this year please?

Koenigsegg What?
Bugatti How?
Devel Why?
Hennessey Who?

Lol Hi says:

I wanna see it with the bugatti as well

Wahn Cologne says:

run the car on the rims.. just take the tires off.. duh…. even I can figure that out!!

Kim Jakab says:

Does the Hennessey follow the emission and safety regulations to be street legal?

Berna La says:

Didn't understand none of it but still interesting

DORU HUM says:

Amazing machine

My Name Is Hello says:

Wait what? I was told rolling resistance does not depend on the velocity of the car.

cableaddict says:

Just drive the damned ugly thing off a tall cliff. It will reach way more than 300 mph, before finally, mercifully, being crushed into a small heap of recyclable materials.
Every Hennessy ever made is Fugly beyond comprehension.

Craig Smith says:

There's no way this will be quicker than the Jesko 300

Aneesh M says:

Venom f5 is boring car after a few years Koenigsegg will b the fastest car again fck this car

(insert sound of crickets here)


come on GoodYear ! help Hennessey do it.
