The Venom F5 is America’s Hypercar – engineered to deliver unparalleled performance and the world’s most exhilarating driving experience. Created by Texas-based Hennessey Special Vehicles, the open-top Roadster, and track-focused Revolution models follow the sold-out Coupe version of the 6.6-litre twin turbocharged V8 monster.
The US-built Venom F5 is priced from US $2.5m before taxes and engineered to exceed 300 mph while also delivering exceptional handling, responsiveness and usability – making it ‘the decathlete of hypercars’. The F5 utilises a carbon-fibre monocoque passenger tub with aluminium alloy subframes, resulting in a dry weight for the Coupe of just 1,360 kg (2,998 lbs).
The Venom F5 Roadster shares identical mechanicals with the F5 Coupe. However, it is differentiated by its removable carbon-fibre roof, unique cosmetic enhancements, and special spoked wheels. The F5 Roadster was engineered to deliver the world’s most exhilarating open-air driving experience. It is expected to surpass the company’s own ‘world’s fastest convertible’ record – 265.6 mph – currently held by the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder.
At the heart of the Venom F5 is the custom Hennessey-built 6.6-litre, twin-turbocharged, V8 engine dubbed ‘Fury.’ The handcrafted V8 utilizes precision components crafted from aluminium, Inconel, and titanium. Under full boost, the engine develops a stratospheric 1,817 bhp and packs 1,192 lb-ft of torque.
Deploying this unprecedented level of horsepower results in prodigious acceleration: 0-62 mph takes less than three seconds, and the Venom F5 will smash a 0-124 mph run in under five seconds. The 1 production F5 is targeting an independently validated top speed in excess of 300 mph. The Venom F5 project is overseen by the company’s Founder and CEO, John Hennessey, who has shaped every aspect of the car’s specification, design, and development.
