Hennessey Venom F5 & Roger Dubui’s Excalibur Spider Carbon

Cover Car – The Hennessey Venom F5

The Hennessey Venom F5, from Hennessey Special Vehicles, is a bespoke mid-engine hypercar engineered to exceed 300 mph while delivering unparalleled performance and the world’s most exhilarating driving experience. The Venom F5 is Hennessey’s follow-up act to its celebrated, and world speed record holding, Venom GT.

Engineered and built in the USA, the Venom F5 boasts state-of-the-art construction. Mirroring F1 race cars, the F5 utilizes a carbon fiber monocoque passenger tub with aluminum alloy subframes. Carbon fiber skins the exterior, meticulously sculpted to cheat the wind while maximizing aerodynamic stability.
