Hennessey May Have The First Street-Legal Car To Hit 300MPH
October 24th, 2017
Hennessey may just have the first street-legal car capable of hitting 300mph. The company has plans to reveal the production version of its much-anticipated Venom F5 supercar at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Nov. 1.
To get the hype going they have a video of the hypercar. The F5 will be built and sold under a new company: Hennessey Special Vehicles at its headquarters in Sealy, Texas. The first renderings for the F5 were revealed almost three years ago and updated teaser images were put out in June but this is the first video we have on the car and we have to say, we're pretty excited to see it.

This week on PowerNation Katie welcomes hot rod builder Steve Legens of Legens Hot Rod Shop in Martin, Tennessee. And with him a gorgeous 1960 Ford truck! One very interesting change Steve’s team made to the pickup was to the side trim; Ford never ran it down the entire side, but now that long strip of chrome trim looks fantastic. They dropped in a Coyote engine with a Borla fuel injection making about 510 horsepower. The Schott Wheels are a nice touch. There’s no missing the custom PPG red paint they call “Cardinal Red” because owner Jeff Perkins is a huge Cardinal’s fan! Inside distressed Pecan color leather seats and a Tan interior, plus with stock gauges give the truck that vintage look. One beautifully restored truck inside and out, front to back. Check it out this week on PowerNation.
