Does the world need another insane hypercar? Certainly not. But are we interested to see what this one can actually do? Yes. This is the production-spec Hennessey Venom F5. Per the press release, it packs a (probably literally) eye-watering 1,817 horsepower punch along with 1,193 lb-ft of torque. That combustion craziness is courtesy of an engine nicknamed Fury. It’s a 6.6-liter V8 that huffs air through a pair of turbos before launching the Venom F5 from 0 to 124 miles per hour in just 4.7 seconds. Hennessey plans to build 24 examples and each one starts at $2.1 million. That’s a lot of dough to go with a potentially also-high top speed… the builder is targeting 311 mph or more.
Like all these claims, we will believe them when we see them. And we do hope to see them, because why not, right? For now though, what you can see are many photos of the car:
It’s simultaneously generic modern hypercar but also rather interesting. It’s wild as to be expected but not overly so. There’s so softness in the lines, which I appreciate. Sure, we can all probably find elements of other vehicles in there, but as a whole, I say it’s not too bad. In fact, I quite like the exhaust treatment with the four pipes exiting out the rear. It probably makes a wickedly wonderful noise.
