On his social media, John Hennessy posted a post in which he said the company was working on “something else that is literally out of this world.” Naturally, no details about what this may be said.
Demonstrating two Venom F5s, one in Mojave Gold body color and the other in Speed Devil Blue, during Monterey Car Week, helped Hennessey sell the remaining inventory of its $ 2.1 million hypercar. Founder and CEO John Hennessy mentions that the sold-out is “just the beginning of our F5 journey,” which will likely include trying to set a top speed record at some point in the future.
Interestingly, Hennessy mentions that a Track Pack version is being developed for the Venom F5, which will supposedly get higher downforce.
The Venom F5 is already (mostly) a race car given that the lack of airbags limits its road legal status in the United States – the car can only cover 4023 km per year.
The announcement made on social networks about the development of a version of the Track Pack and the sale of all copies of the hypercar planned for production ends with unexpected details. Hennessy is clearly working on “something else that’s literally out of this world.” The use of the word “literally” is confusing, unless the Venom F5 goes into space for the tenth movie in the Fast and the Furious franchise, due out on April 7, 2023.
Meanwhile, the “regular” variant of the hypercar is aimed at overcoming speeds of 500 km / h thanks to its 6.6-liter V8 twin-turbo engine, which produces a maximum of 1817 horsepower and 1617 Newton-meters of torque. The Venom F5 weighs just 1,360 kilograms, giving it a power-to-weight ratio of 1.34 hp / kg, which Hennessy says is the highest of any legal road vehicle.
With an estimated 0 to 200 km / h acceleration in an estimated 4.7 seconds, the first bespoke car from an American tuner turns into a rocket. Production has begun and the customer’s first vehicles will be delivered later this year.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the Hennessey Venom F5 hypercar with an unusual body paint was presented. As part of the traditional automotive event in Monterey (USA), a version of the Hennessey Venom F5 hypercar with an unusual body paint – Mojave gold shade was presented.
