American Hypercar Company Hennessey Is Racing To Beat Koenigsegg, Bugatti And McLaren To 300 MPH

by 9 months ago

See that car up there? That is a Koenigsegg hypercar. It’s a Koenigsegg Agera RS hypercar to be more specific. Only 25 of them will ever exist.

The Koenigsegg Agera RS puts out an eye-popping 1,160 hp. It’s dynamically active rear spoiler creates 992 pounds of downforce at 155 mph.

Here’s another look at it…

And this is what it looks like to drive one to a top speed of around 280 mph.

That is certifiably insane.

Not that Koenigsegg has the market all to itself when it comes to ludicrous speed hypercars.

According to TopSpeed

Hennessey is looking to become the first automaker to build a car that can eclipse 300 mph, and it may be able to achieve it with its first-ever custom-built car, the Venom F5. As the chase for the fastest top speed by a production car becomes more challenging, the American outfit wants to make a statement against Bugatti and Koenigsegg by accomplishing what neither has been able to do.
