THE HENNESSEY VENOM F5 REVOLUTION COUPE - ALL THE SAME SCREAMING EAGLES IN A TRACK-BASED SETUP
The Hennessey Venom F5 is a beast of a car, it’s the most powerful American production car to date, as well as being the fastest, which makes sense. The car has been after the fastest production car in the world title for a while, and it’s been pretty close. While it doesn’t own the outright title, the good-looking car is capable of doing a standstill to 300km/h run in just 10 seconds flat. This makes perfect sense considering the mad Fury engine that powers the beast. It’s a 6.6-litre V8 with a pair of fat turbochargers pumping in copious amounts of air in that equates to an astounding power output of 1 355 kW (1 817 hp) with torque rated at a ridiculous 1 617 Nm of torque. The package has it all, but so far it’s only really been used for straight-line speed records, likely because the car is a little too fast and powerful for the twisties. Well, it was until now. The Hennessey Venom F5 has had a bit of a nip and tuck to help it focus in other areas.
The result is the Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution Coupe and the changes are seen in the aerodynamics, suspension, engine cooling, digital telemetry and enough weight reduction to make this 3rd Venom F5 model the lightest Venom F5 model to date, tipping the scales at less than 1 300 kg. Changes also include a full-width adjustable, rear-mounted carbon fibre wing, a larger front carbon splitter, an extended rear diffuser, a roof-mounted central air scoop, more aggressive double-wishbone suspension, more aggressive alignment settings, adjustable dampers, forged alloy wheels, and a digital onboard track telemetry system. John ‘Heinrocket’ Heinricy, chief engineer: “I led engineering on some of the most extreme cars to come out of GM, including the Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V, but nothing compares to designing, developing, and refining a race car for the road like the Venom F5 Revolution. From the outset, we designed the Venom F5 hypercar to be ultra-light and monstrously powerful, with dynamics to match. So, taking these ingredients and adding track-focused aerodynamics, suspension, and gearing, enabled us to create a machine that is the ultimate visceral and emotional driving experience.” John Hennessey, company founder and CEO: “The new Venom F5 Revolution Coupe combines our outstanding 1,817 bhp V8 ‘Fury’ combustion engine with our lightest and most capable chassis. The hypercar, which is astoundingly fast, is at home on a racing circuit where utmost handling is paramount – it offers the nimbleness of a fighter jet, yet with a powerplant like a Saturn V rocket!”
The new Venom F5 Revolution Coupe will make its global debut at the Miami Motorcar Cavalcade Concours d’Elegance on January 15, 2023. It's not cheap, priced at $2.7 million and there will only be 24 units available. Take a look at the YouTube video from the premier of the reworked and track-biased rework of the Venom F5 into the Venom F5 Revolution that promises to be the most agile version of the record-breaking car to date that will make speed-addicted bazillionaires lust one for their collection: Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution Coupe | PREMIERE | Hennessey Performance
