Hennessey Venom F5 Top Speed

Hennessey Venom F5 Top Speed -The Hennessey team has succeeded once again after completing an exhaustive engineering and development process that lasted for two years. The business has developed a whole new carbon fiber chassis, which will act as the basis for the Venom F5.

The Venom F5 features an all-new ground-up design that has been developed and manufactured to push it to a high speed of over 500 kilometers per hour (310.7+ mph). This top speed was achieved by building the vehicle completely out of carbon fiber. The new F5 chassis manages to be both lightweight and durable at the same time. The overall weight of the device is just 86 kilograms, yet its torsional stiffness was measured at 52,000 newton meters per degree (38,353 lb-ft torque per degree) (190 lbs).

"Our brand-new carbon fiber chassis is a feat of engineering, and gazing at it in person is like to seeing a work of art. "It's like a piece of automobile jewelry that's engineered to operate at speeds of more than 300 miles per hour," said John Hennessey, the creator and CEO of the firm.

The manufacturing of the first three Venom F5s is under underway, and testing is scheduled to start in the second quarter of 2020. Hennessey will only produce a total of 24 models of the Venom F5, with 12 being destined for the American market and 12 being destined for markets outside of the United States. The basic price for the Venom F5 is $1.8 million. The allotment for the US are very close to being exhausted. The Venom F5 will make its public premiere for the first time at The Quail in August of this year, which takes place during Monterey car week.

The all-new, one-of-a-kind Fury engine with more than 1,800 horsepower is being installed in the new chassis by Hennessey Specialty Vehicles. The Hennessey Venom F5 engine, which is based on the traditional design of American V8 engines, is capable of producing an astonishing 1817 horsepower and 1193 lb-ft of torque. It employs a variety of high-tech, lightweight engine components, such as a crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, and an unique engine block, which, when combined, result in a displacement of 6.6 liters. The Venom F5 engine produces more than 1800 horsepower at 8000 revolutions per minute thanks to the combination of a pair of precision ball bearing dual turbochargers and 3D printed titanium compressor housings.

 Details of the Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster have been made public by the Texas-based hypercar maker, Hennessey Special Vehicles, in advance of the new vehicle's world premiere at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, which will take place in Monterey, California.

The Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster and the Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe are mechanically very similar; however, the Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster is distinguished from its fixed-roof sibling by a number of characteristics that distinguish it in several ways: physically, cosmetically, and emotionally. The Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster is based on the Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe.

Hennessey's famous 'Fury' twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter V8 engine, which is rated at an incredible 1,817 horsepower and is positioned in the middle of the carbon-fiber monocoque chassis, delivers its incredible output. A strong automatic single-clutch transmission is responsible for transmitting power to the vehicle's rear wheels. The Venom F5 Roadster has a dry weight of less than 3,100 pounds, which enables it to provide amazing performance... and an engineered peak speed that is more than 300 miles per hour.

Hennessey anticipates that the Venom F5 Roadster will be able to break the company's own record for "world's fastest convertible," which is now held by the Hennessey Venom GT Spyder at 265.6 miles per hour.

The creator and current CEO of the firm, John Hennessey, said that the Venom F5 was designed to be the "ultimate manifestation" of a hypercar. The Roadster model takes the Coupe's speed, thrill, and amazement, as well as some terror that inspires respect, to a new, totally visceral level that puts owners closer to the extreme performance of the Venom F5. Behind the open cockpit, our 1,817-horsepower "Fury" engine can be heard screeching, and its sound is not muffled by a roof; this provides a driving experience that is unlike any other.

The hypercar's new roofline is easily the most noticeable change. In contrast to the F5 Coupe, the roof of the F5 Roadster has been re-engineered to include a detachable panel that is made from rigid carbon fiber composites. This is in contrast to the roof of the F5 Coupe. The one-piece roof has complete insulation for protection against the outside elements and is upholstered with plush upholstery made of Alcantara. In order for the waterproof panel to be able to endure the hypercar's startling acceleration capabilities and the aerodynamic forces that are exerted at very high speeds, it is fastened with four quick-release bolts and two high-strength latches. The removal and installation of the lightweight roof panel, which weighs just 18 lbs (8 kg), may be accomplished by a single person with ease.

Owners have the option of storing the panel in a handmade Merino wool travel bag or displaying it as a freestanding piece of art on a custom-made, sculptural pedestal. Both options were developed by Hennessey's in-house design team to improve the quality of the ownership experience. The roof pedestal is fashioned out of carbon fiber, much like the roof panel, and it echoes design elements seen on the Venom F5 Roadster.

A brand new engine viewing window made of tempered glass may be found on the Venom F5 Roadster. This panel, which is located in the center of the rear engine cover, shines a light on the enormous "Fury" V8 engine so that it may be seen in all of its magnificence. It was not an easy effort to create and certify it for use in jet aircraft, which required its engineering to be top-notch. Large glass panel has the ability to endure aerodynamic forces in excess of 300 miles per hour as well as temperatures in excess of 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit (540 degrees Celsius).

The Roadster has its own distinct wheels, which is another way in which it is differentiated from its coupe sister. The lightweight wheels were forged from an aluminum alloy and then machined to perfection. Each of the seven pairs of spokes on the wheels resembles an enlarged version of the Hennessey 'H' logo.

Because the Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe was designed from the beginning with an open-top version in mind, only minor adjustments were required to deliver coupe-rivaling chassis rigidity, strength, and stiffness. This ensures that drivers will have access to the same responsive handling characteristics as the Venom F5 Coupe regardless of whether or not the roof is in place.

Discerning customers of the Venom F5 Roadster have the same options as those purchasing the Venom F5 Coupe: they may choose any external and interior color combination, or they can choose to leave parts of the carbon fiber chassis and body panels exposed.

Steve Reindl, President of Shell Lubricants Americas, had this to say about Hennessey: "It's wonderful to see the continuing innovation from Hennessey from the test track to the road." "We both have a deep appreciation for high performance, and our co-engineering collaboration enables us to put Pennzoil's products through their paces in some of the world's most potent road machines."

Only thirty examples of the Venom F5 Roadster will be produced at the factory in Texas due to the very low manufacturing volume (this approach of guaranteeing a unique ownership experience saw the 24-unit Venom F5 Coupe production run sell out shortly after its appearance at Monterey Car Week in 2022).
