Hennessey plans six-wheel-drive electric hyper-GT for 2026

Code-named Project Deep Space, the new car will feature four-place diamond seating and is part of the company’s next phase of a strategic product plan that will introduce three all-new vehicles over the next 10 years.
Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer, has revealed part of its 10-year product plan that will see three all-new ground-up models created over the next decade. The first debut, which follows the Venom F5, will be the world’s first six-wheel-drive, fully electric Hyper-GT codenamed Project Deep Space.

Priced from $3 million, the car is touted as the world’s most expensive EV (electric vehicle). The ultra-luxurious grand tourer is being designed and engineered to transport four adults in comfort along with four sets of golf clubs plus luggage. Hennessey says that the car will be “devastatingly fast,” with unmatched traction thanks to its unique six-wheel-drive powertrain and a 50% increase in surface contact over traditional four-wheeled vehicles.

“Hennessey has spent more than 30 years building some of the fastest and most exciting vehicles in the world,” said 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 ‘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.”
