We're talking about a carbon fiber wonderland.
What should the interior of a car with a claimed top speed of 301 mph look like? Hennessey Performance believes it ought to look identical to the interior it designed for its new Venom F5 hypercar. Hennessey Performance has unveiled the first official images of its new hypercar’s interior and they look impressive. It looks premium thanks to heavy doses of carbon fiber and an LCD screen panel. In fact, there’s carbon fiber everywhere, as it’s the material of choice for the dashboard.
Other materials include Alcantara and an unnamed metal (likely aluminum) surrounding the air vents. Speaking of which, take note of some of the finer touches, such as the leather pull straps on the doors. And just look at how close together the seats are; they’re literally a single piece. As for that F1-like steering wheel, Hennessey claims it’ll be offered in two versions: a fairly typical one covered in leather, and a racing version complete with its own instrument panel located in the center. Both steering wheels are oval-shaped and feature buttons, toggle switches and an overall exotic look. We also noticed a “boost” button, so it’ll be interesting what’ll happen once it’s pressed.
We also like how the gear selector has been relocated to the steering wheel. Set to reach its first customers in 2019 or 2020, the Venom F5 will be powered by an in-house built twin-turbo 7.4-liter V8 with around 1,600 hp. Total weight: around 3,000 lbs. The question we know that’s on everybody’s mind is when will Hennessey attempt to break the Koenigsegg Agera RS’s just announced top speed production car record? Our guess is that Hennessey won’t do anything until Bugatti makes its move. After all, the Chiron is on sale right now.
