Hennessey Special Vehicles Partners With Canadian Retailer

Hennessey Special Vehicles, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer, is opening a Hennessey Toronto retail location in Canada through its partnership with luxury vehicle retailer Grand Touring Automobiles, the company announced.

Grand Touring Automobiles is based less than two miles from Toronto’s financial district, where Hennessey’s flagship Venom F5 hypercar is featured alongside other premium brands the retailer represents, including Bugatti, Lamborghini, and Aston Martin.

“On behalf of Grand Touring Automobiles and myself, we are honored to represent Hennessey Special Vehicles in Canada,” said Paul Cummings, dealer principal, and CEO.” The Hennessey product portfolio is the best-in-class of American performance and hypercars. We look forward to capturing the full potential for the brand in Canada and working with the Hennessey family and team.”

Hennessey Toronto will offer customers the Hennessey Venom F5, in open-top ‘Roadster’ and track-focused ‘Revolution’ forms, the company said. The Venom F5 is engineered to exceed 300 mph and produces 1,817 hp from its 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged ‘Fury’ V8 engine. Armed with the V8 engine, a carbon-fiber chassis, and a body that delivers a dry weight under 3,000 pounds, the Venom F5 can sprint from 0-200 kph (0-124 mph) in just 4.7 seconds, the company said.

“We are very pleased to partner with Grand Touring Automobiles. The knowledge and professionalism of their team will provide personalized ownership for buyers in Canada,” said John Hennessey, company founder, and CEO. “The company’s portfolio includes some of the most prestigious brands in the world. We are honored to work with a group that shares our family ideals, brand vision, and desire to deliver the ultimate customer experience.”
