35 Hennessey Venom F5 2020 revealed

Cover for Hennessey Venom F5 2020 revealed

Hennessey Performance have unveiled production version of Venom F5 hypercar, just in time before scheduled customer deliveries in 2021.

Hennessey Venom F5 is brand new and fully bespoke from ground up - no awkward Lotus Elise heritage anywhere to be seen this time.

With $2.1 million dollar price tag and planned production of just 24 units, the Venom F5 will become instant collectible, just as well as ground-breaking (and shaking!) performance car.

F5 is powered by custom 6.6 liter twin-turbo V8 engine named "Fury" with claimed maximum power of 1817 horsepower at 8000 rpm and 1,617 Nm (1,193 lb-ft) peak torque.

Weight is advertised as 1360 kg (2998 lb), 0-100 kph (62 mph) time as 3.0 seconds and 0-200 kph (124 mph) time (much more relevant) as "under five seconds".

Hennessey are targeting a top speed in excess of 500 kph (311 mph) and are promising to prove this with a transparent and independently verified top speed run sometime next year.

So I found a good comparison with a Porsche that was slightly more powerful but ofcourse weighs more. Compellingly the in gear acceleration was very surprisingly close. Now I'm NOT saying John's car will go out there and smash a 0-300km/h in 8.4 seconds or 0-400km/h within 15.5 seconds. But I AM saying it's not impossible. There ARE cars on streets tyres doing this to within a second! :0

Preliminary investigations reveal that John's going to need alot more than 1529 rwhp. In fact he's going to need FOUR WHEEL DRIVE! For now the specifics I'll keep written on my pad. But as an example 2.1 seconds 100-200km/h *claimed is computer generated and simulated, theoretical number. It will be VERY difficult to achieve. :)

Now this one is VERY interesting. The acceleration figures from John are, well incredibly quick.

I'll need to benchmark this against very specific production cars. Because of 1817hp it'll be the modified production cars. I've been meaning to look at these for months! Underground Racing Lamborghini's ****ing incredible machines. Then any number of Porsche Nissan Fords and Vipers! I'm not really up on much of them but I saw some figures for a UGR Aventador recently. Apparently a 2000hp model. That might become my next poster car!

This cars engine weighs 280KG. The SSC Tuatara's is 194KG just 5KG more than the Koenigsegg Jesko engine at 189KG.

John's engine is FAT!

I calculated Hennessy Venom F5 gear ratios and I got the maximum 7th gear speed of 332 mph, but tires and aero also matter, I think it will do around 309-312 mph considering the aerodynamics and if there is a good tire that wont blow up lol.

Yet another hypercar with ridiculous claims. Makes me wonder if they're all that hyper when so many manufacturers just appear out of the blue with their own made cars.

I'm not trying to be a hater and I love almost everything about this car (except the idle noise). However, I'm interested to see how its gonna pull a 0 to 200km/h in 4.6 seconds on street tires on a non prepped track. I'll believe it when I see it.

It's like a C8 Corvette and a Aspark Owl had an ICE baby.

There will be no cheating with the Venom F5 when they crack the 300mph barrier...
