The AM100 car retailer, which already counts exotic brands Rimac, Bugatti, Lamborghini and Ferrari among its portfolio of franchise partners will sell the Venom F5 Coupe and Roadster hypercars ahead of the launch of three new models.

Hennessey becomes the second Stateside business to join HR Owen this year, following its earlier introduction of Czinger to the UK market.

HR Owen chief executive Ken Choo said: “The HR Owen Group looks to brands that relentlessly innovate, seeking to be the very best no matter the cost or complexity.

“Hennessey is the perfect addition to our portfolio of partners, with a storied heritage, a proven hypercar already received to critical acclaim and a forward-facing vision of the future of performance.

“We are excited to begin working hand-in-hand with the Hennessey team to showcase the incredible work of this famous American brand to our customers here in the UK.”

Hennessey’s Venom F5 is the brand’s first bespoke, ground-up Hennessey hypercar design features a 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine generating 1,817bhp.

John Hennessey, the founder and chief executive of Hennessey Performance EngineeringWeighing just over 1,350kg, the Venom F5 is designed with one goal in mind: to be the fastest road car on earth and claims a validated top speed in excess of 300mph.

The Venom F5’s 24-car production run is accounted for, but it is now joined by the world’s fastest convertible, the Venom F5 Roadster, revealed at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in Monterey, California in August 2022.

A production run of 30 units is planned, each priced from $3 million (approx £2.65m).

Commenting on HR Owen’s appointment as its UK retail partner, John Hennessey, the founder and chief executive of Hennessey Performance Engineering, said: “We are understandably very pleased to partner with HR Owen, the UK’s leading luxury motor group.

“Its team’s hypercar experience allows us to confidently expand our footprint knowing that our clientele will be in the care of experts.

“We are honoured to align with a professional team that shares our family ideals, brand vision, and passion for ultimate performance.”
