Every now and then, a brand-new automobile appears and upsets the established order. Frequently, it's a hypercar, a market only the world's most prestigious manufacturers like Bugatti, Koenigsegg, and Ferrari enter. But there is Hennessey Performance right here in the United States. The Venom GT, which was produced by the Texas-based tuner a few years ago, has been replaced by its eagerly awaited successor.

The Hennessey Venom F5, which has performance capabilities that initially may seem mind-boggling, is the most potent road vehicle in existence. The lunacy will only be available to a few consumers, but we can promise you that they are quite real.

Hennessey is undoubtedly working on breaking Bugatti's current production-car speed record very shortly. The Venom F5 is a remarkable accomplishment for a very tiny carmaker from Sealy, Texas, as well as a celebration of the hypercar genre.


The Venom F5 more than meets the standard for how all hypercars should seem. The concept that was first displayed in Geneva over three years ago is clearly seen in the overall external style. It doesn't pioneer any novel design concepts, but that's good. While owners will probably prefer to have the engine covered, we particularly enjoy how much focus was placed on displaying the engine (more on that later).

In comparison to a front-engined layout, the mid-engine configuration provided designers with more flexibility, which improved overall handling. To improve the center of gravity of the vehicle, designers and engineers collaborated closely to position the engine as low as feasible inside the vehicle.

Another lovely addition is the butterfly doors. The only optional feature is the Track Pack, which adds a front splitter that is more aggressive and replaces the rear spoiler with a wing.

For its quest to smash speed records, a unique set of Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires was chosen. 265/35 tires are mounted on 19-inch forged aluminum wheels up front, while 345/50 tires are mounted on 20-inch wheels at the back.


The interior's simple layout works incredibly well. Weight is the number one opponent of good performance, and the more features there are, the more weight is produced. The incredibly driver-focused interior features a steering wheel that is crammed with buttons and was modeled by an F1 racing and an aviation yoke. To improve sight and encourage drivers to lean their heads against the seatbacks, just like in a genuine race vehicle, Hennessey claims the top rim was removed.

Some of those steering-wheel buttons operate the lights, turn signals, windshield wipers, and five driving modes: Sport, Track, Drag, Wet, and F5. To achieve the car's maximum power output, use the latter. Because each modality modifies power delivery, traction, and braking, drivers will be able to distinguish between them.

Engine and Performance

Hennessey gave everything he had in the name of power. The "Fury" engine is a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V8 that was wholly designed in-house. It has a rating of 1,817 horsepower and 1,193 lb-ft of torque.

The engine alone weighs 617 pounds and has an aluminum cylinder head and a new cast-iron block. Additionally, a special intake manifold design places the intercooler between the plenum and the cylinder heads to lower the temperature of the intake air and maximize power.

Through a seven-speed semi-automatic transmission, that power is sent directly to the back wheels. With a power-to-weight ratio of 1,298 horsepower per tonne, the total dry weight is only 2,998 pounds.

It goes without saying that this significantly adds to the astounding performance specs. 15.35-inch carbon-ceramic brakes provide stopping power, and the body was constructed around a 190-pound ultra-rigid carbon-fiber tub.

Hennessey claims a time of 4.7 seconds for 0-124 mph and a time of fewer than three seconds for 0-62 mph. 311 mph is the top speed. A unique coating provides heat resistance on an exhaust system made of stainless steel and Inconel. The underside of the engine bay cover and the rear decklid are both coated with a substance known as Cerakote.

Pricing and Rivalry

There is hardly any rivalry in this market. The SSC Tuatara currently holds the title of the fastest car in the world after recently reaching a top speed of 316.11 mph. The corporation claims it will retry the record attempt, but the way this was done has generated some controversy.

Before this, the Koenigsegg Agera RS's 2017 record was surpassed by the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+, which reached 304 mph (278 mph). The Hennessey Venom F5's asserted top speed of 311 mph may ultimately place it first, depending on how the SSC Tuatara performs in the following race.

There will only be 24 examples produced by Hennessey, each of which will cost $2.1 million. Delivery is anticipated to start in the first half of 2021.
