The Hennessey Venom F5 has been a long time coming. It’s been six years since its initial announcement in 2014. The company has already confirmed that the specific production hypercar will go public this year, but now Hennessey confirms the month it will launch.
From a teaser posted on the official Hennessey Performance Facebook page, the Venom F5 will finally hit center stage in November. This goes with the company’s original plan, which was to start production of the car last year and release the production version this year.
The Venom F5 will have exposed carbon fiber parts, which will be the case throughout your body.
In fact, the F5’s monocoque body is made of carbon fiber, which explains the $ 1.6 million price tag attached to the limited-production supercar. Hennessey also estimates that it will weigh less than 3,000 pounds (1,360 kilograms), with a drag coefficient of 0.33.
You are most likely already aware that the Venom F5 is slated to be Hennessey’s fastest creation, aiming for a record top speed of 311 miles per hour (501 kilometers per hour).
This will be possible thanks to a monstrous 7.6-liter V8 biturbo engine that generates 1,600 horsepower (1,193 kilowatts) and 1,300 pound-feet (1,762 Newton-meters) of torque, with an aluminum block and steel cylinder sleeves.
Only 24 units of the Hennessey Venom F5 will be produced, 12 for the United States and the other dozen for the rest of the world.
