Hennessey says it uses glass that was originally developed for jets and engineered to withstand temperatures over 1,000 F along with the air pressure produced at the vehicle's maximum velocity.
The interior continues the aviation theme with a yoke-style steering wheel that has the top cut off to provide a better view of its digital instrument cluster.
The chassis and the removable roof panel are largely made of carbon fiber composites and the entire vehicle weighs less than 3,100 pounds.
The Venom F5 Roadster has not yet made a top speed run, but the coupe has been clocked over 271 mph in testing.

The company only offered 24 of the $2.1 million coupes for order last year, and they have all already been spoken for.
Hennessey had previously claimed the record for world's fastest convertible in 2016 with the Venom F5's predecessor, the Venom GT, which hit 265.6 mph.
