As part of the annual motor festival in Monterey, California, Hennessey Special Vehicles division of the American company Hennessey Performance Engineering demonstrated two copies of the Venom F5 hypercar, painted in Mojave Gold and Speed ?? Devil Blue. The last hypercars were also sold there, the circulation of which will be only 24 copies, but now the head of the company promises to do something special.
According to Top Gear, founder and head of Hennessey Performance Engineering John Hennessy said that the successful completion of the F5 is “just the beginning of a journey” to try to break the world top speed record in the near future. He also mentioned that a Track Pack with increased downforce is being developed for the Venom F5. Moreover, Hennessy noted that the company is developing “something literally out of this world.” One can only guess what this might be about – especially considering the word “literally”. Recall that the maximum speed of the hypercar – according to the manufacturer, of course – is 512 kilometers per hour.
From place to “hundred” F5 accelerates in less than three seconds, acceleration from 0 to 200 kilometers per hour takes 4.7 seconds, up to 300 kilometers per hour – 8.4 seconds, and up to 400 kilometers per hour – only 15.5 seconds. The car is equipped with a 6.6-liter V8 engine with two turbochargers, which is based on the Jem engine of the LS family. Its power is 1842 horsepower – this is more than the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ and Koenigsegg Jesko (1600 horsepower). Venom is already in production and is expected to be released in full by 2023.
