Hennessey Special Vehicles

Hennessey owns the recently established Hennessey Special Vehicles division, in which it builds the Hennessey Venom GT sports car line-up. The division is tasked to learn from its experiences with the Venom GT and apply it to the newest variation, the Hennessey Venom F5, which will succeed the Venom GT. All vehicles sold under the division are branded as a regular Hennessey model, despite being built by the division.
