The Coolest Supercars Of 2022 – SlashGear



The Coolest Supercars Of 2022 - SlashGear

Americans have come up short in the supercar department throughout most of our automotive history. Before the arrival of the Ford GT, the only real home-grown supercars have been from boutique automakers without long-term viability such as the Vector W8. The all-new Hennessey Venom GT marks the latest chapter in this small, but growing sector.

Hennessey has made a name for itself in manufacturing a number of performance upgrades to production cars and also installing and customizing the same cars for retail sale, resulting in some extreme performance versions of Mustangs, Camaros, Jeeps, and light trucks. However, it has now engineered and produced its own supercar from the ground up, the Venom F5. Hennessey had previously produced a powerful supercar, the Venom GT, but it was made on a modified Lotus chassis and this one is all original.

For us Americans, being built at home is cool enough, but it goes much further. The Venom F5 is powered by a bespoke engine based on the GM LS pushrod V8, significantly modified to make 1,817 horsepower to turn the rear wheels. While the car is built to go very fast, it is meant to be driven on the road and is made to be manageable as a street-legal vehicle. Otherwise, it looks very cool with a nice blend of curves and creases with plenty of carbon fiber showing throughout.
