The year was 2014. Hennessey announced the Venom F5 hypercar, which was later promoted to a top speed of 467 km / h (290 miles per hour)
After five years, Hennessey has not yet developed any of the 24 Venom F5s for its customers, although we have innumerable details about the model that will compete with Koenigsegg and Bugatti.
Even better, Hennessey has announced on its official Facebook fan page that it will be presenting its first full car for the summer of this year, which will run between the second half of June and September.
With the announcement came an early version of the Venom F5 that Hennessey said was from a few years ago. The design changes from the first rendering to the current yellow model aren’t revolutionary, but you should see some subtle changes if you take a closer look, especially the adjustment of the lower front bumper and headlight.
However, what changed a lot was the confirmed top speed of the upcoming Venom F5. Of the above 290 mph, the Hennessey hypercar strives to reach 501 km / h (311 mph) or, as the company says, “500 km / h”.
This speed is expected to be achieved by the Venom F5’s 6.6-liter twin-turbo V8, which generates 1,817 hp (1,354 kilowatts) and 1,619 Nm of torque.
To withstand these tremendous amounts of force, Hennessey said the Venom F5, with a torsional stiffness of 38,353 pound-feet per degree, will be slightly stiffer than the Bugatti Chiron.
To be honest, the Venom F5 should be able to deliver the promised performance with a car that boasts of being so fast and firm at $ 1.6 million, and we’re all excited whether the company can substantiate its claims The moment of its launch.
