One of the key lessons many of us learnt during lockdown was how important shared experiences and personal interactions are to our well-being and quality of life. Which is why Robb Report has compiled the ultimate list of giftable experiences, which treat recipients (and anyone they’d like to bring along) to incredible—and, in several cases, one-of-a-kind—activities around the globe. Next on the series, a chance to own Hennessy Performance’s sleek new hypercar – the Venom F5 that comes with a special luxury experience.

Know someone with not just a need but a craving for speed? Consider it sated with this ballistic combo from Hennessey Performance. ‘Making fast cars faster’ has been Texas-based super-tuner John Hennessey’s tagline for 30 years, but the 1,817hp Venom F5 is the first model he’s developed from scratch. Created with the goal of breaking the 483km/h mark, the carbon-fibre bragging right boasts the ability to crush zero-to-100km/h in 2.6 seconds, thanks to its 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged V8 – making 1,617Nm of torque – and a dry weight of just 1,360kg. Only 24 examples of the US$2.1 million hypercar will be made, and all are spoken for except this one, reserved for a Robb Report reader.
Delivery will take place at Formula 1’s 2022 United States Grand Prix – hosted by the Circuit of the Americas racecourse in Austin, Texas – attended by the recipient and a guest via round-trip first-class flights from anywhere in the contiguous US. Also included are top-tier accommodation for five nights, VIP access to the track’s exclusive Champions Club and a private dinner with Hennessey himself.
Even more exclusive is the invitation to reach 402km/h steering your new ride (or being driven by a professional) down NASA’s Space Shuttle runway in Florida (airfare also included). And though the Venom F5 is street-legal, Hennessey is throwing in a custom trailer and, naturally, something to haul it: a new 1,012hp Hennessey Mammoth 1000 TRX truck in livery that matches the car. Now that’s a power couple.
US$3.21 million, offer expires 1 April; [email protected].
