We last heard about the concept form of Hennessey Venom F5 nine months back at SEMA. After the first glimpse, not much is known about it. The time is quite appropriate to decide the specifications of this potential record-breaking hypercar. Motor Authority reports that the company and Jon Hennessey might reveal the full and final specification of Venin F5 at this month’s event in Monterey. Everyone around the world will be waiting to know all details of the Hennessey Venom F5. Many don’t know that Hennessey Venom F5 is the successor to the Lotus based Venom GT.
Many people think that name of Hennessey Venom F5 is derived from fighter jet, but it is not. The name is derived from top classification of tornado rating that range between 260 to 318 mph. Thus, the name is appropriate for the American based tuning company as their hypercar is also targeting to break the 300mph barrier. To achieve this benchmark is not easy, but Hennessey is not leaving anything to chance. Hennessey Venom F5 reportedly has developed twin-turbo 7.4 liter V8 that might grow to 8.0 liter. It is also a strong probability that they might adopt quadruple turbochargers like the Bugatti.
If this turns out to be true, then the output is expected to be in the region of 1,600 horsepower and 1,763Nm of torque. Brakes will be provided by Brembo, lubricants by Pennzoil and Shell and Michelin will provide Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires (only for the rear). Hennessey Venom F5 plans to snatch the lap record and top speed crown from Koenigsegg. We can’t wait to see Venom F5 in final specification as Monterey Car Week will begin in few days from now.
