Hennessey Unveils Plans For A P 150 Million 6-Wheel Drive Hyper Car


Hennessey, the Texas-based hyper car manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has revealed part of its 10-year product plan that will see three all-new ground-up models created over the next decade. The first debut, which follows the Venom F5, will be the world’s first six-wheel-drive, fully electric Hyper-GT – codenamed ‘Project Deep Space’.

Touted as the world’s most expensive electric vehicle (prices start a USD 3 million or P 150.8 million), the new car will be a unique, ultra-luxurious, grand tourer that can transport four adults in absolute comfort along with four sets of golf clubs, plus luggage. Of course, given Hennessey’s trademark obsession with power and speed, it will be devastatingly fast with unmatched traction thanks to its unique six-wheel drive powertrain. With a 50 percent increase in surface contact over traditional four-wheeled vehicles, the performance of the Hennessey hyper-GT will be utterly astonishing.

The passenger cabin is no less cutting-edge. The innovative diamond-shaped seating positions, with the driver centrally located, permits two passengers to sit to the side and slightly back from the driver. The fourth passenger, positioned directly behind the driver, will occupy the world’s first VVIP (Very Very Important Person) lie-flat automotive seat – bringing private-jet-class luxury to the hyper-GT world.

With 100 percent new design and engineering, ‘Project Deep Space’ will be constructed with an ultra-lightweight carbon-fiber chassis and body panels, plus dramatic gullwing doors. The interior will be fitted with the highest quality materials—bespoke ordering will permit clients to customize each electric hyper-GT to their wishes.

Hennessey Special Vehicles will construct the new electric hyper-GT at its advanced production facility in Sealy, Texas. Hennessey will work closely with technology partners including Shell Pennzoil and Delta Cosworth to develop the electrified powertrain. The dedicated Texas facility, which is currently building the Hennessey Venom F5 hyper car, sits adjacent to the Hennessey Performance factory that produces more than 600 high-performance cars and trucks each year.

‘Project Deep Space’ is part of Hennessey’s strategic 10-year product plan. The electric hyper-GT, which is engineered for grand touring, is scheduled to follow the production of the sold-out Venom F5 coupe – the company’s 1,817-horsepower hyper car.
