I posted a pic of the hennesy weight claims. @FastestLaps The current weight is incorrect according to the manufacturer.

FastestLaps has been around far too long to get sucked in by Hennessey's kerb weight claims. Given that Hennessey has stated that the dry weight is 1360kg it's obvious to those of us who know the differences between dry and kerb weight that it would be a minimum of 110-120 kg heavier with all fluids and a full tank of fuel which is 1470-1480kg...

ChironSS  3d ago @SpeedKing

Forget it man, he's too docile, like LITERALLY. We've already covered the "25KG" difference they claim dry>wet/kerb weight is physically impossible. And he's been told by atleast THREE of us. It's insanity to print such complete unsubstantiated beetle dung. But they are not alone. Shaking my head!

But atleast he's, Hennessey that is, is making them. Unlike others!

Edit: pressed wrong button. I'm in complete agreement!

This from Hennessey's webpage

Name/Type: Hennessey V8 twin-turbo 'Fury'
Configuration: V8
V-angle: 90°
Capacity: 6,555 cc
Bore: 104.8 mm (4.1 inches)
Stroke: 95.3 mm (3.8 inches)

Therefore the engine spec of 7.4 litres is wrong and needs to be updated...

Best power to weight ratio car in the world aside from maybe the tuatara if that's light enough

 

User avatar

This from Hennessey's website

"At the core of the F5 is an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber monocoque that tips the scales at just 86kg.
This achievement sets the tone for the rest of the car where lightness features in every component to achieve the 1,360kg total dry vehicle weight."

Therefore not KERB weight. More misleading info!

User avatar

Rubbish, i got the info from Hennessey's website. It is DRY not KERB weight...


User avatar

Shwingbob  2w ago @SpeedKing

1360 is dry 1385 is kerb weight


User avatar

ChironSS  2w ago @SpeedKing

100% factually correct. SSC Tuatara, Koenigsegg Regera, Mclaren Speedtail and Ferrari SF90 from DRY weight to KERBWEIGHT are a MINIMUM 137KG difference between the two. This documented fact.

The Hennessey F5 V8 weighs 280KG accordingly to their own press materials. The Nelson's Racing Engines V8 is 194KG in comparison.

I know the KERBWEIGHT of the Tuatara, and anyone thinking that the Hennessey F5 Venom is coming in under that is very sadly mistaken and completely misinformed.

The KERBWEIGHT of the Hennessey Venom F5 is going to be near 1500KG. And the power to weight ratio will tumble.

And that claim of 0-400km/h in 15.5 seconds which was already nigh on impossible is complete bullshit now.

Because if they've based their acceleration claims on their DRY power to weight ratio's instead of KERBWEIGHT power to weight ratio's then that's outrageously disengenuos. They must have there's no other explanation based on their own acceleration metrics. As they QUOTE power to weight ratio's based on DRY weight figures.

I'm just glad SSC didn't release acceleration figures to 400km/h.


User avatar

ChironSS  2w ago @Shwingbob

Man, listen you keep tripping up on power to weight ratio's? First in regards to top speed (claims) and now dry weight to kerbweight differences. It is physically IMPOSSIBLE for any production hypercar to have a dry to wet weight difference of 15KG or 25KG or whatever it is. Impossible. 100% impossible. Completely impossible.

You've got to study more. Look how Ferrari got themselves in a muddle with the SF90 over a similar thing?

It'll come with experience. I thought Bugatti was untouchable. I was wrong. Completely in one respect.

Different companies measure dry weight differently that might tie in


User avatar

SpeedKing  2w ago @Shwingbob

Are you having difficulty in comprehending English? I copied and pasted the dry weight figure from his website. It clearly stated "total dry vehicle weight 1360kg". In addition, the notion that the difference between dry and kerb weight is 25kg is laughable. I suggest you stop posting nonsense and do some research because you have no idea...


User avatar

Shwingbob  2w ago @SpeedKing

Go to the dimensions section in the link I sent and it says dry weight is 1360kg and kerb is 1385 you monkey. I'm not saying its right im saying its what they said you dumbass


User avatar

SpeedKing  2w ago @Shwingbob

The only dumbass here is yourself for posting that the dry vs kerb weight difference is only 25kg and not having sufficient intelligence to call it out for being bullshit.

Cocobe  2w ago @Shwingbob

the curb weight of a modern vehicle is with a full tank of gas, all engine oils, all water coolants, wind shield wash, hydrolic fluids, etc.

25kg difference between dry weight and kerb weight is just straight up BS.


User avatar

SpeedKing  2w ago @Cocobe

You've gotta wonder when supercar manufacturers or boutique ones like Hennessey can't even get something as simple as kerb weight details correct? Do these peeps not proofread their information because it makes them look amateurish...


User avatar

Shwingbob  2w ago @Cocobe

different brands have different specification for dry weight though


User avatar

Shwingbob  2w ago @SpeedKing

I never said it made sense I only said that the current weight is the dry weight and the manufacturer claims the kerb weight is 1385 i can contact them if that will shut you tf up


User avatar

SpeedKing  2w ago @Shwingbob

It would be a waste of time contacting Hennessey because he wouldn't tell you anyway. The important thing in this weight equation is that throughout the website info on the Venom F5 it is clearly stated that the DRY weight is 1360kg.
"In Australia and North America, kerb weight is officially defined as the vehicle in running order, unoccupied and unladen, with all fluid reservoirs filled to nominal capacity (full) including fuel, and with all standard equipment fitted (options and accessories are not included)."

Therefore the kerb weight in the "dimensions" section is obviously bullshit. BTW you'll never shut me up and nor would anyone with half a brain want to because i am the oracle, get it? lol

I know, and we're all saying it's complete nonsense, because we've heard it all before.

25KG dry to kerbweight difference is about as likely as the SSC Tuatara doing it's next productions top speed record run on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean with a hybrid assisted electric motors and propulsion from Tesla Rockets!

Quote>"The F5 is powered by a rear-mid-mounted 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that generates 1,817 hp at 8,000 rpm. This power, 277 hp/liter, in a car that weighs just 1,360 kg (2,998 lb) generates a power-to-weight ratio of 1.34 hp/kg (1,298 hp/ton) – the highest of any road car."

Hennessy are using the DRY weight claims to artificially inflate the power to weight ratio of the F5. Forget about the listed kerbweight, this is a completely new area of research and and all I will say is one particular car jumped out in this regard.

To be honest it's very early stages but I've already seen early signs of spectacular success. For now that's as much as I can say.

Also a completely different car from dry>kerbweight was rounded up 11% difference.

I stated this car would be nearer 1500KG, and until proven incorrect I stand by it.


User avatar

Shwingbob  2w ago

@FastestLaps could you pretty please with extra sprinkles change the hp to 1817 at 8000 rpm. Its also 6.6 L because its stated 277hp per liter 1817/277 = 6.6 L rounded up

They are ATTEMPTING it THIS YEAR! Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds! So that means equivalent comparisons to the current SSC North America Tuatara like for like.

Do YOU think Hennessey can beat it AND break 300MPH in a two way average?

Well, accordingly to Auto Express we don't have much longer to wait!

More importantly>

Quote>"The F5 uses a specially-designed longitudinally-mounted semi-automatic gearbox with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Having evaluated all potential options, the Hennessey team chose the only option capable of transferring the F5’s furious torque to the road – a single-clutch CIMA gearbox
with seven ratios. The set-up features close ratios at the lower end for rapid acceleration, with longer higher ratios to achieve a top speed in excess of 500kph (311mph). This means that the F5 offers an engaging drive at normal road speeds but can also hit record-breaking numbers. While the top (7th) ratio has a theoretical top speed of 534kph (334mph), the Hennessey team DOES NOT PLAN to hit THIS SPEED, it simply allows sufficient scope to pass the 500kph target."

But John Hennessey DID say they'd find somewhere to go HIGHER than 500km/h in an interview if they needed to. So watch this space!


User avatar

ChironSS  2m ago

They are stating it's sold out. There's DEFINITELY two production cars manufactured. They were both at the Quail "type" events. Just awaiting acceleration validation to manufacturer claims and the eventual two way average speed runs.

It doesn't look likely in 2021 although Hennessey could absolutely spring a surprise. He always has!

Things are BIGGER in Texas right! LOL!

Since John Hennessey is from Texas (people there love the racist ass confederate flag) and a staunch supporter of Trump (based on his Instagram following), this so-called "Venom" will rot into 1,968 plastic pieces by the time it reaches 300 mph.

Hennessey follows NOT ONLY POTUS45, but also Trump Jr., and so many other thinktank-fueled narcissists like "Candace Owens" (literally the worst human being alive)
