Hypercars are one of the highlights of a car enthusiasts’ world. They are often referred to as supercars, though, and one of the latest of these rides is the Hennessey Venom F5.
The Hennessey Venom F5 is the latest series of hypercar from the American automobile manufacturing company Hennessey that are known for producing incredibly fast cars. Hennessey has boasted of the vehicle and calls it one of the most powerful road cars ever made; it was assembled in the new Hennessey facility at Sealy, Texas. The Venom F5 is a predecessor of the 2014 Venom GT that achieved a speed of 270.49 MPH; the car was designed by legendary US racing driver John ‘Heinrocket’ Heinrich.
So, without further ado, here are the incredible features that define the Hennessey Venom F5.
The Coolest Features Of The Hennessey Venom F5
The body and chassis of the vehicle are almost entirely made from carbon fiber. They were produced by a UK partner of the Hennessey manufacturing company, The Delta Motorsport Silverstone. Although it’s an American car, they had to pull parts from different places and sources to make sure that the ride would be as remarkable as they intended. The exterior was influenced and inspired by the McLaren F1.
Along with carbon fiber on the chassis, it also has active aerodynamics, a first of its kind with the absolute intention to be the fastest road car on Earth.
The interior design of the Hennessey Venom F5 is another thing that has brought the company great delight; it boasts of great comfort, quality, space, and intention to make the driver feel in tune with the speed and the car itself.
The seats are covered in the luxury of the Muirhead leather; the buttons, switch, control, and knob are located on the carbon fiber steering wheel.
The cockpit is designed to give the driver behind the wheel the feel of piloting a fast aircraft; the vehicle has a very simple approach with the use of yoke style steering.
Originally, there were reports that the Venom F5 would be powered by a 7.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine but was later revealed to be a 6.6-liter, which is still very impressive, and it targets the speed of 311 MPH and boasts of a power output of 1,817 HP (1,355KW; 1,842PS) and 1,931lb-ft of torque.
The Venom F5 has a unique five vehicle mode of selection; they include Drag, Track, and the most impressive of all, F5. These modes run on the available transmission on a CIMA 7 speed single clutch with a paddle shifter with a seven ratio for it.
Other Cool Feature Of The Hennessey Venom F5
The Hennessey Venom F5 series was made to be a limited edition, with 24 produced; 12 were for the United States and the remaining 12 for the rest of the world; the pricing of the vehicle starts at around $1.6 million to $2.1 million.
The new Hennessey Venom F5, like any of the other cars produced by this manufacturer, is notable for its logo, but with this vehicle, it was taken up a notch with a new design for the logo. The new “H” gives a different feeling that goes with what this vehicle promises.
Should You Get A The New Hennessey Venom F5?
One of the most interesting things about this car is the name, The F5 is a reference to the F5 tornado which is the highest rating on the Fujita scale. The F5 is the most powerful category of wind which identifies the greatest wind speed, which lands around 676 to 824 MPH. Just like the new hypercar, that intensity is rare.
The Venom GT was reported to have been easy to maneuver in traffic, and with how impressive the Venom F5 is, we expect everything to go smoothly, but the only problem with this super vehicle has to do with its legality on US roads. This could pose a major problem, but the NHTSA has given owners the leniency that permits them to use these vehicles for a limited distance of 2,500 miles per year.
This car is an American pride and according to John, when he spoke about this hypercar, he said: ” I feel very honored to be representing America, an American brand and our brand. We wanted to take the great things about the Venom GT, its footprint and build our car around that footprint.”
The Venom has been in the works for years, and while it seems like it was too good to be true, it came to reality and became the fastest car at the moment; everything about this ride was done to perfection.
