Project Deep Space

As part of its newly revealed 10-year product plan, the US-based automaker has revealed the first debut to follow the now sold-out 1 335 kW hypercar Venom F5 coupe.

This aptly codenamed ‘Project Deep Space’, is being touted as the world’s most expensive electric vehicle. Priced from $3 million USD, the new car will be a unique, ultra-luxurious, grand tourer. Moreover, it can transport four adults in absolute comfort along with four sets of golf clubs, plus luggage. Also, it is the world’s first six-wheel-drive, fully electric Hyper-GT.

Hennessey Speed

Of course, Hennessey maintains its trademark obsession with power and speed. Project Deep Space will be devastatingly fast with unmatched traction thanks to its unique six-wheel-drive powertrain. Now, with a 50 per cent increase in surface contact over traditional four-wheeled vehicles, the performance of the Hennessey hyper-GT should be immense.

“Hennessey has spent more than 30 years building some of the fastest and most exciting vehicles in the world,” explains company CEO & founder, John Hennessey. “This mantra will continue for our next 30 years by introducing the world’s first fully electrified, six-wheel-drive hyper-GT. We believe that ‘Project Deep Space’, with six electric motors combined with six driven wheels, could be the world’s quickest accelerating four-seater from zero to 200 mph!”

Keeping it lux

The passenger cabin is no less cutting-edge. Innovative diamond-shaped seating positions see the driver centrally located, two passengers to the side and slightly back from the driver. Additionally, the fourth passenger is positioned directly behind the driver. Notably, this third passenger seat will occupy the world’s first VVIP (Very Very Important Person) lie-flat automotive seat. This essentially brings private-jet-class luxury to the Hyper-GT world.

“In Project Deep Space, we’ve merged the essence of early-twentieth-century grand tourers with an otherworldly hyper GT form that leaves no doubt about its capability and intent,” says Hennessey Director of Design, Nathan Malinick. “Integrating many industry firsts, our next all-new model turns the EV ‘hypercar’ concept on its head while exhibiting our ‘art of reduction’ design philosophy. By combining Hennessey’s passion for performance with the pinnacle of automotive luxury, we will offer our customers the best of both worlds with a central driving position, ample space for passengers, room for luggage, and best in class performance. The result of our advanced development program will be a car like no other.”

Further, ‘Project Deep Space’ will be constructed with an ultra-lightweight carbon-fibre chassis and body panels. It will include dramatic gullwing doors. Additionally, the interior will be fitted with the highest quality materials. Bespoke ordering will permit discerning clients to customize each electric hyper-GT to their wishes.

Coming soon in 2026

“I’ve been building some of the world’s fastest accelerating vehicles for decades. However, they have always been performance-limited by the mechanical grip. Six-wheeled electric propulsion is the solution. The technology is unprecedented in this segment – both forward-thinking and innovative. Our design and engineering team is excited about embracing the future,” says John Hennessey.

Hennessey Special Vehicles will construct the new electric hyper-GT at its advanced production facility in Sealy, Texas. Here, Hennessey will work closely with technology partners including Shell Pennzoil and Delta Cosworth to develop the electrified powertrain. Additionally, the dedicated Texas facility, which is currently building the Hennessey Venom F5 hypercar, sits adjacent to the Hennessey Performance factory that produces more than 600 high-performance cars and trucks each year.

Full specifications for ‘Project Deep Space’ are yet to be announced. However, Hennessey has confirmed that pricing will start at $3 million US Dollars and production will be capped at 105 units globally. This ensures exclusivity for its customers. Production will begin in 2026.
