Hennessey Performance Vehicles have confirmed they are finishing off chassis number 8 at their production facilities in Texas.

Four or Five fully completed cars in various colour ways have been already been delivered. That gold one is particularly stunningly beautiful! Impressive.

Hennessy Venom F5 PLUS Carwow! LET'S GO!

 

mic-drop.jpg?550x800m

Bad ass little production hypercar! Sorry copied in an initial incorrect video, I didn't check, too busy watching it! LOL!

Edit>So I've already take 30-100MPH and 30-130MPH plus 142-167MPH speedometer readings frame by frame. Although this is NOT VERIFICATION at least we have a gauge to work with and work from. I won't be releasing the numbers because the boost pressure, rpm and gears etc used need to analysed, plus I'm not sure if Venom F5 mode was used, PLUS it's possibly using NON E85 fuels as here in England it's NOT a "pump fuel" or anywhere else in the United Kingdom last I checked, and it's a developmental vehicle anyway. So it could be hundreds of horsepower down~ to be investigated! ;)

SpeedKing  1w ago

All those factors aside the single biggest issue is the eternity it takes for gear changes. The 7 speed transmissions do not like quick changes with that much power running through them...


User avatar

Shwingbob  1w ago @SpeedKing

This is true but in the video they said they are aware and fixing it


User avatar

TypeF173  1w ago @SpeedKing

It wasn't in Venom F5 mode. I believe, so shift speeds drop and are slower accordingly, albeit the quality is what it is! Raw!


User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago @TypeF173

Unless i'm mistaken doesn't the F5 appearing above the tacho mean it's max power?


User avatar

TypeF173  1w ago @SpeedKing

I checked mate to me it just looks like an F5 logo. I could be wrong but I at the minute that's the way I'm leaning.


User avatar

SpeedKing  1w ago @TypeF173

If you look at the 23 second mark and slow it down you can see the driver activate the F5 button and the logo then appears on the screen so judging by that the logo dictates that it's in F5 mode...

World "Exclusive" (LOL!) information for Hennessey Venom F5 crash worthiness/testing and analysis!

https://www.autoweek.com/news/a35012044/audi-updates-its-popular-q5/

Quote>"We also had a few questions about the new car’s safety. Visscher told us Hennessey has conducted all the required FEA simulations for crashworthiness and that the F5 will meet the “required safety standards” in every market where it’s sold. He also claimed the F5’s carbon-fiber monocoque is “one of the most rigid produced by any automotive manufacturer.”

“The intrinsic strength of carbon fiber enhances occupant safety in the event of an accident,” he told us. “The carbon-fiber body joins an aluminium subframe where engine and suspension components connect. The subframe components are engineered to deform in the event of an accident to absorb the energy of an impact and protect the passenger cell.”

FEA analysis and simulations=

https://www.autodesk.co.uk/solutions/finite-element-analysis#:~:text=Finite%20element%20analysis%20(FEA)%20is,the%20way%20it%20was%20designed.

Quote>"Finite element analysis software
Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerised method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow and other physical effects. Finite element analysis shows whether a product will break, wear out or work the way it was designed. It is called analysis, but in the product development process, it is used to predict what's going to happen when the product is used.

FEA works by breaking down a real object into a large number (thousands to hundreds of thousands) of finite elements, such as little cubes. Mathematical equations help predict the behaviour of each element. A computer then adds up all the individual behaviours to predict the behaviour of the actual object.

Finite element analysis helps predict the behaviour of products affected by many physical effects, including:

Mechanical stress
Mechanical vibration
Fatigue
Motion
Heat transfer."

If your an (ex apprentice classically trained and time served engineer, so yes absolutely) you'll possibly know what Finite Element Analysis is.

YES I've known about the above and the testing for MONTHS. I didn't want to get involved really. But I'm SICK of constant misinformed individuals, elsewhere, talking complete trash. There's absolutely NO need to.

Anyway I'm doubling down on this and after the revelations yesterday about SSC North America it's my pleasure to do so, as the above very likely applies to the Tuatara too, and I'm a little obsessed there, and so what?

There's still going to be "murmurings". But I don't care!

But it's not easy research. Nobody else I know is doing this? Or collating the information. That's unfortunate. But ATLEAST what we all do here is open to all unlike someplaces.

https://www.motorauthority.com/news/1132002_hennessey-venom-f5-signs-off-testing-with-271-6-mph-run-next-stop-300-mph

Quote>"Having COMPLETED TECHNICAL DEVELOPMENT of our Venom F5 hypercar."

This means the full "F5" mode has been tested and signed off then?

"For ultimate performance, the Venom F5 runs in F5 Mode, which uncorks the full 1,817 hp and 1,193 lb-ft of torque of the car's 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V-8, when on E85 (peak power reaches 1,542 hp on regular gas). The mode also allows the engine to rev to 8,500 rpm, instead of 8,200 in all other modes."

Ultimately until we see dyno graphs it's difficult to know anything? The SSC Tuatara has definitely been done, no question and I've seen evidence of the Hennessey Venom F5 on the rollers too in Texas. So let's trust they release the charts!

But look at that power figure on PUMP gas! It's extraordinarily powerful! It's got an extra 0.7 litres in capacity over the SSC V8 which explains some of that gain. Compare the figures to the Bugatti Chiron Supersport! LOL!

She was definitely down on power in the 271MPH run.

Anyway I'm very pleased the Hennessey Venom F5 exists because ALOT of engineering has gone into her. I'm sure she'll perform very well.

OFFICIAL FL 100-271MPH Top Five rankings for WOT ACCELERATION from the currently available Youtube top speed videos. No bias just timings.

Reverse order

4) Hennssey Venom F5= 23 seconds (missed gearchange cost seconds)
3) Pre production prototype Bugatti= 18 seconds
2) Koenigsegg Agera RS= 17 seconds
1) SSC Tuatara= 13 seconds

Jesus Christ! Anything incorrect changed.

300-400km/h= 10.667 seconds!*

This new method of "digital interrogation" of measurements is infinitely more accurate than previous processes. Like anything else it's subject to change and evolution.

It's a little painstaking if I'm honest, but occasionally worth the persistence. Definitely.

Well it WAS. Benchmarked via the current outright production records holders in terms of ACCELERATION the Hennessey Venom F5 is UNDER half a second within the SSC Tuatara's times upto 250MPH.

Above will come MUCH later as they are not planning anymore runs but focussing on production instead.

So to 400km/h based on the next generation measurements I've no qualms about this cars acceleration. Above 400km/h is a completely separate matter.

Nice one Hennessey!

(PS If's what's and buts do NOT matter. I'm well aware of the technical specifications and details and aspects. I was looking at TIME plus SPEEDS.)

*Subject to revision at anytime without notice.


User avatar

TypeF173  2m ago

So I've used second generation measurement techniques on the Hennessey Venom F5 from the RACELOGIC VERIFIED visible Vbox measuring device in the cabin from the official top speed released video.

Specifically>

100-200MPH
200-248.50MPH
186.411-248.548MPH (300-400km/h)

For now I won't be venturing above 250MPH, in the real World it's redundant and completely irrelevant. But for comparisons sake only will another time.

I'm not releasing the metrics as on going research is being done BUT in one of the above taken measurements the Hennessey Venom F5 was within ONE TENTH of a second of a current World Champion that had a standing start launch?<Period.

This was a SPEED demonstration NOT a standing start acceleration with full launch and traction control from 0-400km/h. That will come in time. (But NO 0-400km/h in 15.5 seconds, Hennessey can FK that bullshit right off, in fact most of their released "claims".)

Anyway, the haters can kiss it, including the convertible and track pack versions coming? Hell of alot more rare than some "hypercars". LOL!

I know someone deleted their comment, but I'll be the one to copy mine..

Wait, ultraklasse? What you're saying basically was my idea afterall! We should separate EuroNCAP segments for officially designated "S"-segment cars like we do family cars. A Venom F5 certainly isn't in the same segment as a Corvette, let alone some BRZ-grade Camaro 4 banger...

Basically, A and B segments do not have any REAL sports cars, although you could count the kei cars and the very entry-level Caterhams and Polaris Slingshots.

C segment is where the Mazda Miata belongs, but maybe you can add Audi TT and Alpine A110 to this as well. Technically the BMW 2 Series and Subaru BRZ are 2+2s.

D segment is BMW Z4 (+ Toyota Supra), Nissan Z, Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang, Dodge Challenger (this one's debatable, as it's much bigger than Camaro and Mustang; its four door sibling is officially an E segment)...

E segment is [E1] premium sports cars like Porsche 718 and 911, Corvette, Lotus Emira (which replaced ALL THREE OLD CARS in Lotus' lineup), Viper (discontinued), AMG GT and SL, Nissan GT-R, Acura NSX, Aston Martin Vantage and DB(11/S), Ferrari Portofino M/Roma, and to a certain extent [E2] moderate supercars like Lamborghini Huracan (+ Audi R8), Ferrari 488 (+ Maserati MC20), and McLaren's 540 to 675 designated range of Sports and Super Series cars (+ Artura)

F segment is all flagship supercars and hypercars, including the iconic Pagani Huayra and Lamborghini Aventador, and all of the ones that were influenced by them. Today's kind includes Ferrari (with the F8, 812, 296, and SF90, + Icona series like SP1 and SP2 Monza, and SP3 Daytona), especially McLaren (720 to 765 range + Senna, Elva, Sabre), and of course Lamborghini (Aventador's niche cousins like Sian and New Countach). Aston Martin soon to come (mid-engine Vanquish and Valhalla)! Even Chevy (the Zora Corvette)!

You could technically include ULTRA LUXURY grand tourers like Bentley Continental GT and McLaren GT, but they're not REALLY in the same league performance wise, so really more E segment than F in the sports car department.

G segment is a RARE NICHE SEGMENT FOR UPPER HYPERCARS AND MEGACARS. Same as hypercars, but for 1000+hp and/or 250+mph cars.

Also, Ford GT doesn't fit ANYWHERE in this segment. It's more of an HTSC segment car, or a Homologated Track SuperCar, like the Porsche 911 GT1 and Mercedes-AMG CLK GTR of old... even more rare and exclusive than F and G segments combined ;)

An interesting pattern I found during my SIMTEST at 91 octane pump gas?
If we take into account the acceleration shown in the video?
200-300kmh: 4.64 sec ^ SIMTEST
200-300kmh: 5.34 sec ^ 271MPH video
200-250mph: 9.14 sec ^ SIMTEST
200-250mph: 9.62 sec ^ 271MPH video
This guy Spencer Geswein upshifts at 7900-8000RPM region ^1
1) If we take into account gear ratios >
4th 8000RPM: 180.5 mph (video shift at 177-178)
5th 8000RPM: 224.8 mph (video shift at 221-222)
6th 8000RPM: 269.8 mph (video shift at 267-268)
It seemed strange that these data matched without significant difference?
The difference within one second! (0.7 sec actually) :P
