Wake up Bugatti and Koenigsegg because Hennessey Performance Engineering sounded an alarm.

On Wednesday at the 2017 SEMA show, the performance company out of Sealy, Texas revealed the Venom F5 hypercar with over 1,600 horsepower and a strong desire to reach a 301 mph top speed. Production is due to start next year and just 24 are planned, each with a starting price of $1.6 million.

The Venom F5 follows the similarly potent Venom GT, but the F5 dials every attribute up. The car starts with a completely new chassis and carbon fiber body to achieve a 2,950-pound curb weight, plus it gets additional active aerodynamic functions that together yield a coefficient of drag of 0.33. Hennessey originally targeted a coefficient under 0.40.
