American basketball legend Michael Jordan has added to his collection one of the fastest cars in the world.
Jordan is now among the few people in the world to get their hands on a Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster worth $3.5m
A photo posted on Hennessey Performance’s Instagram account shows the basketball star standing with CEO John Hennessey and the 1,817 horsepower convertible car. The caption read: “Today was a special day. Such an honor to build a special Venom F5 for a special friend.”
Only 30 of the cars have been produced by the manufacturer which can go 482km per hour. And each car was designed to the specifications of the owner.
“We created the Venom F5 to be the ultimate expression of a hypercar,” John Hennessey said in a statement when the car was announced.
“Our 1,817 bhp ‘Fury’ engine screams behind the exposed cockpit, with its roar unobstructed by a roof—it is an unmatched automotive experience.”
Jordan already has some experience in ultra-fast cars: he once owned a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport that exceeded 400 km/h.
For reference, the current world speed record for a production car is held by the Bugatti Chiron with 490.484 km/h… not far off the performance of the Venom F5.
