The Venom F5 hypercar is ready for public consumption, and boy is there a lot to consume. Chief engineer John Heinricy of the F5 officially signed off the car with a 270 mph + run.
The technical development of the 1,792bhp turbocharged V8 hypercar is now complete. There's no more fine-tuning or tweaking — after many high-speed runs, brake tests and suspension validation, Hennessey is happy to build the 24 customer cars.
"During the ultimate validation of the F5, we passed 270mph and intend to continue our journey to 300mph toward the end of the year," boss John Hennessey said. That’s right, they’re still gunning for the magic 300mph number. But, with technical development signed up, does this show a special edition F5 or some kind of additional pack to push it past the triple ton? Nope. To paraphrase Jaws, they’re going to need a bigger runway.
A Hennessey spokesperson said they need a big tarmac to reach 300mph, and they don't want to use a customer car to do so. As soon as the first handful of customers get their hands on an F5, Hennessey will build another that will be used as a 300mph test mule. The end of 2022 is being pitched as a good time to go flat out.
Otherwise, it's Hummertime. "Customer car production will allow us to complete up to 12 vehicles per year," Hennessey said. Only 24 are being built, remember, and each one — costing $2.1m a pop — is accounted for. The 6.6 liter twin-turbo V8, nicknamed "Fury," not only kicks out 1,792 bhp but also 1,193lb torque and redlines at 8,000rpm. Sounds a little angry, too. And we also know Hennessey is planning on "a few more surprises for the F5, including the Track Pack enhancements, plus something else literally out of this world".
