Hennessey’s Future Plans Includes More Cars, But the Venom F5 Is the Limit
Hennessey made itself known as the company that does ridiculous tunes on everything from the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 to building the obscene 2019 Chevy Silverado Goliath 6x6 which was followed by the 2013 Venom GT Spyder, the 2014 Venom GT2, and finally an updated version of the Venom GT in 2016. All versions of the Venom GT were based on the Lotus Elise but it’s latest car, which was originally showed in 2015 – the Venom F5 – was a lot less Lotus and a lot more Hennessey. The production model of the Venom F5 was finally revealed in late 2020, and as it turns out, it represents the glass ceiling for bespoke Hennessey cars.

If you were coming here in hopes ot learn just how fast the Hennessey Venom F5 can go, well I’m sorry to tell you, but we still don’t know. What we can tell you is that in a short, two-minute video, Hennessey has revealed what the production version of the Venom F5 will look like. Along with this, we’ve received confirmation that the F5 will deliver 1,817 horsepower as expected, which means it has a power-to-weight ratio of 1.34 hp per kg (1,298 HP per ton.)

The Venom F5 will be available in LHD and RHD, with double wishbone independent suspension with fully adjustable coil over Penske dampers in the front an rear. With all of this said, we’ve posted the debut video and a nice gallery of images below for you to check out.
