Hennessey Venom F5
After an extensive two-year long engineering and development phase, the Hennessey team has built an all new carbon fiber chassis that will serve as the foundation of the Venom F5, built to propel the Venom F5 to a top speed of over 500 kilometers per hour (310.7+ mph).
“Our all new carbon fiber chassis is an engineering marvel and to see it in person is like looking at a piece of artwork. It’s like a piece of automotive jewelry that’s built to run 500+ km/h,” said company founder and CEO, John Hennessey.
The first three Venom F5’s are currently in production and testing will begin in Q2 2020. The base price for the Venom F5 is $1.8 million and Hennessey is only building a total of 24 examples, 12 for the American market and 12 for international markets. US allocations are close to being sold out. The Venom F5 will make its official debut at The Quail during Monterey car week in August of this year.
Being mated to the new chassis is Hennessey Specialty Vehicles’ all-new bespoke 1,800+ hp engine called Fury. Based on classic American V8 architecture, the Hennessey Venom F5 engine produces an astounding 1817 horsepower and 1193 lb-ft of torque. It uses a combination of high-tech, lightweight engine components (crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods & custom engine block) that combine for 6.6L of displacement. Combined with a pair of Precision ball bearing twin turbochargers with 3D printed titanium compressor housings, the Venom F5 engine delivers over 1800 bhp at 8000 rpm!
