After not being able to stand on its promise of delivering the fastest production automobile in the world, the Texas-based business, Hennessey, is introducing an even more complex version of its Venom F5. Although the company hasn’t made any big promises and claims this time, this one will definitely be slower at speed than the F5 version already available in the market. Let’s find out why.
The Hennessey Venom F5 Model
The Revolution’s top speed has not been specified by Hennessey, but they are aiming for over 311 mph. That’s because the Revolution has significant aerodynamic changes that are supposed to significantly boost its peak downforce capabilities. With its decorative stars-and-stripes endplates, the new adjustable rear wing is said to be capable of producing over 800 pounds of positive aero assistance at 186 mph and over 1400 pounds at 249 mph. This F5 revolution would actually be fulfilling Hennessey’s promise of a track pack with a higher rear wing. The company has decided to produce only 24 F5 Revolutions that will be available at a cost of $2.5 million. The short supply of the car makes them even more desirable.
The fact that the Revolution sports front and rear diffusers of a sizable amount suggests that the total figure will be considerably more astounding. To help shift the aerodynamic balance forward, the front bumper also features dive-plane components. Although they haven’t really made any changes to the power, the 6.6-liter twin-turbocharged pushrod V-8 engine will be used that powers other F5s. It is mid-mounted and produces 1193 pound-feet of maximum torque at 5500 rpm. A limited-slip differential and an automatic single-clutch transmission will work together to provide power to the rear wheels. Additionally, this model is way lighter than the previous ones, almost by 3000 pounds. Also, more aggressive suspension settings that are intended for use on tougher tracks are promised.
