If it gets built, he says there will be no Lotus parts at all.
It's described as an evolution of the Venom GT, which only uses the tub and maybe some front suspension parts from Lotus. I'd expect the same parts to be used in this rebody.

Hennessey already made his first mistake by naming it the F5. That's from the OLD tornado rating scale that ceased in 2007! Not off to a good start considering it's not even built.

Hennessy Venom F5 - is that you esprit?

The new concept design for the Hennessy Venom F5 looks like the design for the "2015" Esprit. Maybe this was the influence? Or is this how the next Elise/Exige will look?

Discuss.

I think it's pretty obvious that they are using concept models for the Behar era Esprit as the inspiration for their car.

looks more like a mid engine corvette to me... its looks as much NOT like the bazar concept as much as it does.
