Hennessey Venom F5 crashes during testing at Kennedy Space Centre

Hennessey Performance was recently at the Kennedy Space Centre testing a new experimental aerodynamics package for the Venom F5. During the test, the hypercar lost control and crashed.

According to Hennessey, the Venom F5 accelerated from 0-250 mph on the same runway that NASA used to land the Space Shuttle. The car reached 250 mph in less than 4000 ft. but lost downforce, causing the driver to lose control.

Hennessey Performance has released an official statement regarding the incident that took place on July 1, 2024. The company stated, “The prototype Venom F5 performed strongly accelerating from 0-250 mph in just under 4,000 ft. when the vehicle lost downforce on the runway causing the driver to lose control. Most importantly, our test driver walked away from the incident without injury.”

“Pushing the limits of speed, performance, and physics has never been easy. Our team will evaluate the aerodynamic data to determine the root cause of the issue,” John Hennessey said. “I am very grateful to our team of engineers and technicians who have designed and built an amazingly strong vehicle. We are also very thankful to the first responders and staff at KSC for their quick response to ensure everyone’s safety,” he added.
