Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer, and high-performance vehicle creator has unveiled a new, lighter-weight, track-focused version of the Hennessey Venom F5 that has been comprehensively re-engineered for increased agility, uncompromised handling, and high downforce. The new Venom F5 Revolution Coupe is an apex predator on a racing circuit – it is the most powerful pure-combustion hypercar in the world.
The Venom F5 Revolution Coupe is based on Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe. The two share nearly identical DNA. Distinguishing the Revolution Coupe from its sibling are its comprehensively reworked aerodynamics, suspension, engine cooling, and digital telemetry.
The engineering team also focused on reducing mass. Thanks to a systematic focus on weight reduction, the race-honed model tips the scales below 3,000 pounds – it is the lightest Venom F5 model.
Mirroring all other Venom F5 models, mid-mounted in the carbon-fiber monocoque chassis is Hennessey’s celebrated twin-turbocharged, 6.6-liter, ‘Fury’ V8 engine rated at barely believable 1,817 bhp.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through an automated single-clutch gearbox calibrated for competitive use. With such low mass, the Venom F5 Revolution Coupe promises phenomenal acceleration.
Carbon-ceramic brakes are fitted as standard and feature muti-piston calipers, ensuring fade-free stopping power on the road or circuit. The Revolution Coupe is its full-width rear-mounted carbon fiber wing.
The rear wing delivers more than 800 pounds of downforce at 186 mph (300 km/h) and over 1,400 pounds of downforce at 249 mph (400 km/h).
The new Venom F5 Revolution Coupe will make its global public debut at the Miami Motorcar Cavalcade Concours d’Elegance on January 15, 2023. Priced at $2.7 million and limited to just 24 units, exclusivity is a given.
