The Hennessey Venom F5 ultracar series production is at an end. Or rather the beginning of the end because all 24 limited editions are sold out. The $2.1M asking price for each example wasn’t a hindrance to any of the buyers. Hennessey used the Quail Motorsports Gathering and Pebble Beach Concours events to complete the final sales push. The Hennessey Venom F5 features a twin-turbocharged, 6.6-liter V8 hypercar that boasts 1,817 hp and 1,193 lb-ft of torque making it the most powerful hypercar ever made. Hennessey’s team focused on quality of workmanship, and simplicity of design and engineering to deliver “a hypercar without peers”.
With the show season drawing to a close, the engineering team may return to final validation testing on roads and racing circuits. The final phase of testing will see the team refine the car’s full-power acceleration, high-speed stability and braking. Once the engineering team signs-off this final development phase, Hennessey has its sights set on a top speed surpassing 311 mph (500 kph).
John Hennessey, company founder and CEO:
“Showing two of the latest F5 models at The Quail and Pebble Beach alongside the likes of Bugatti, Lamborghini and Koenigsegg was an honor for the whole Hennessey team. The fact that we secured orders from customers who saw the cars at the events is testament to the quality our team has achieved… and we’re yet to reach the vehicle’s full potential!”
