Air Jordan might want to switch his name to Road Jordan now.
Michael Jordan has added a rare Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster — claimed to be “the world’s fastest and most powerful convertible” with a top speed of 300 mph and a price tag of $3.5 million — to his collection of vehicles.
And as an athlete that always strived to be the best and is known for his competitive spirit, it seems to suit Jordan, who is now one of only 30 people to own the supercar, according to Robb Report, as the company limits its production.
“Today was a special day,” the Hennessey Performance account wrote along with a photo of company CEO John Hennessey with Jordan and his new ride outside the Hall of Famer’s private golf club in Florida, Grove XXIII. “Such an honor to build a special Venom F5 for a special friend.”
The image doesn’t show much of the Venom F5 Roadster, which debuted over a year ago, but from what can be seen, it has a glossy carbon-fiber body detailed with yellow pinstripes.
Production of the Venom F5 began in late 2022 and there are just 24 examples were made of the coupe, making the convertible not as rare.
With increased production comes increased price, tagging the Venom F5 Roadster at $3 million to start compared to the $2.1 million coupe.
That’s not exactly a dent in the wallet of Jordan, who’s net worth is valued at $2 billion, according to Forbes.
Jordan, currently considering a $1.7 billion sale of the Charlotte Hornets, made a reported $256 million last year in his licensing deal with Nike, according to Front Office Sports, with his Jordan Brand making $5.1 billion in revenue.
He also co-owns the 23XI NASCAR team with racers Bubba Watson and Tyler Reddick on his roster.
The car’s price tag is understandable from a peek at the spec sheet:
The Venom F5 holds a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V8 engine, producing 1,817 horsepower and 1,193 pound-feet of torque, which courses through a seven-speed, single-clutch semi-automatic transmission.
The roadster has many similarities to the coupe, specifically at the front, but the differences start at the cabin where a removable carbon-fiber roof panel lays at just 18 pounds.
The lack of a roof increases its curb weight but not by much, scaling at 3,100 pounds while the regular F5 sits at 2,998 pounds.
New tempered glass, which is made of a material that can withstand temperature over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, is also sported at the back to give a look at the potent engine behind the passenger compartment.
“We created the Venom F5 to be the ultimate expression of a hypercar,” John Hennessey said in a statement when the car was announced. “Our 1,817 bhp ‘Fury’ engine screams behind the exposed cockpit, with its roar unobstructed by a roof—it is an unmatched automotive experience.”
