Hennessey Venom F5 First Look

The Venom F5’s basic ingredients make for astounding reading. Hennessey plans to build just 24 of these hypercars—12 for the United States market and a further 12 for the rest of the world—at $2.1 million a pop plus taxes (up from the original price of $1.6 million), and the F5 is targeting a top speed in excess of 311 mph (500 kph for you European types). Its twin-turbo 6.6-liter V-8 produces—wait for it—1,817 hp at 8,000 rpm and 1,192 lb-ft of torque at 5,500 rpm. Hennessey calls its mighty motor the Fury and claims it’s the most powerful production road car engine ever produced. Those headline-grabbing power figures are produced on E85 fuel and with the Venom in F5 Vmax mode. Pump gas will reduce the total output by a couple of hundred horses, we estimate. (Hennessey has yet to release solid power numbers for the car on non-E85 fuel.)
