Powered by a twin-turbocharged 6.6L V8 engine making 1,817 hp and 1,193 lb-ft of torque, mated to a 7-speed single-clutch automated transmission, the Hennessey Venom F5 is a hypercar that stands out from the crowd. It recently started real-world aerodynamic testing at a 2.2-mile runway of a former U.S. Air Force base in Arkansas. Even though the F5’s engine power was restricted to just 900 hp, it still managed to top 200 mph.
The next phase of development will test the Venom F5’s agility, poise and driver feedback by having it participate in an intense program of dynamic track as well as road driving throughout the summer. Hennessey will test the vehicle on every road type, while fine tuning its high-performance dynamics at several racetracks including Laguna Seca, California and Circuit of The Americas (COTA). Once all the testing is complete, the team aims to achieve a top speed that surpasses 311 mph.
