After what felt like 500 leaks and countless announcements, Hennessey Performance actually got the Venom F5 presented. With that you just avoided going into the book of fables like that of the company Defining Extreme Vehicles Car Industry LLC from Dubai with the Devel Sixteen has succeeded. We'll probably never be able to buy it. The Venom F5, on the other hand, does! At least when you get over $ 2 million can put on the table. After a little more than 3 years since the presentation at that time 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas the F5 is now a reality. At least for 24 people! More than 24 shouldn't be built by the ultra-fast super sports car. Delivery of the super-exclusive hypercar will begin next year and, according to Hennessey, each of the customers will then be able to try the top speed of over 500 kilometers per hour to achieve.
6,6 liter V8 named Fury
This is made possible by a tailor-made 6,6-liter V8 with two turbochargers in the rear, which is crazy from 1.842 HP (1.354 kW) at 8.000 tours and 1.617 Newtonmeter torque (1.356 Nm already at 2.000 rpm) performs. And quite without any hybrid nonsense. The sprint to 100 km / h takes according to the company less than 3 seconds and Hennessey even claims that in 4,7 seconds a speed of 200 km / h is reached. That would be almost two seconds faster than a Bugatti Chiron!
It continues with 8,4 seconds 300 and after 15,5 seconds you already have 400 km/h reached. The fabulous values are made possible with a dry weight of only 1.360 kilograms, which gives the car an unbelievable power-to-weight ratio 0,73 kg per HP enables. The low weight results from a tailor-made Carbon monocoque chassis, carbon tubes weighing only 89 kilograms and the whole Carbon fiber body panels. Everything about the Venom is driver-oriented and so you have to be content with an almost bare interior and only a few frills.
Interior similar to an F1 racing car
The driver sits in an extremely reduced cockpit on a sports seat with a steering wheel that is inspired by a jet (flight yoke from aerospace) and an F1 racing car. Hennessey removed the upper part of the steering wheel to improve visibility for the driver. There are controls on the steering wheel for the headlights, Windshield wiper, Blinker and the different Driving modes appropriate. The Venom F5 has five driving modes: Sport, track, drag, wet and F5. The "F5" setting is the only one that accesses the maximum available power of the V8. However, each mode increases the power transmission, the performance of the brakes and the traction of the Venom F5. By the way, it is switched via a semi-automatic seven-speed transmission and the service goes only to them Rear wheels. You are with 345/50 Michelin Pilot Cup Sport 2 Rubber on 20-inch rims housed in the wheel arches. In front there is against it 265 / 35 tires and 19-inch rims. The fact that the rims are manufactured using the forging process certainly does not have to be mentioned at this point. Incidentally, the chassis should even stiffer than that of the Chiron.
self-developed V8 BiTurbo in the rear
The 289 kilogram V8 has a brand new cast iron block, aluminum heads and an aggressive crankshaft. Because of the unique manifold design, the engine has "FURY" called. The exhaust gases from the engine are passed through a system made of stainless steel and Inconel, which with Cerakote is coated. A material that is also used in cannon barrels to protect against heat. And Hennessey also uses Cerakote on the underside of the engine cover and the rear. Incidentally, Hennessey will offer the F5 with an upgrade, the so-called "Track pack". It brings a more aggressive one front splitter and instead of the rear spoiler one rear wing With. The braking system consists of 15,35 inches (approx. 39 cm) in size Carbon ceramic discs with 6-piston calipers at the front and 4-piston calipers at the rear. As already mentioned, the starting price is from 1,8 million $ 2,1 million gone up. According to Hennessey, the Venom F5 is “slightly” larger than the Venom GT.
