Engine venom F5 is called Fury. This 6.6 V8 unit with two turbochargers, an outstanding 1842 HP and 1617 Nm. Customers will have the choice between “mechanics” and “robot”. Rear-wheel drive. The official premiere of the production version of the coupe will be held in August this year at The Quail in the chain of exhibitions Monterey car week in California.

Previously, the authors model F5 said she’s applying for a maximum speed of 484 km/h (in practice, it has not yet been confirmed). But subordinates John Hennessy raised the bar. Now Texans writing about “500+ km/h.” Understandable, because the competitor Chiron Bugatti Super Sport 300+ with a disabled limiter in September 2019 showed 490,484 km/h At top speed is 500 or so aimed Jesko Koenigsegg and SSC Tuatara. A Koenigsegg in Geneva 2020 will represent the concept with the speaker called Mission 500 (the details are unclear, apparently it is some variation Jesko).
