John Hennessey of Hennessey Special Vehicles unveiled the Venom F5 at the Shell “Pioneering Performance” at the 2017 SEMA Show. It’s the all-new hypercar designed and built to be the fastest road car on the planet.

“We’ve designed F5 to be timeless so that in 25 years it will still have a level of performance and design that will be unmatched,” said Hennessey, company Founder and CEO.

Shell, the oil brand Pennzoil, and Hennessey co-engineered the next big thing in the automotive industry.

“The F5 is an all new car, designed and built from the ground up, from the engine to the chassis. We expect the Venom F5, named for the most powerful tornado speed winds on the Fujita scale, to be the first road car capable of achieving more than 300 mph and have worked closely with Pennzoil to get us across the finish line,” shared Hennessey.

They have developed a chassis and carbon fiber body design focused on aerodynamics to achieve the lowest possible drag. The new F5 design features active aero that will yield a coefficient of drag of just 0.33.

The Hennessey team is developing an all new twin turbo V8 engine that will deliver over 1600 bhp. It will have a 7-speed single clutch paddle shift transmission and delivering power to the rear tires. The Venom will also feature new lightweight chassis and all carbon fiber body, which will give the F5 a curb weight of 2,950 lbs–extremely light.

The F5’s combination of lightweight, low drag and all-American horsepower will deliver a new level of hypercar performance. Acceleration from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) will be less than 10 seconds making the new Venom quicker than current Formula 1 race cars. Zero to 249 mph (400 km/h) and back to rest will be under 30 seconds. The top speed of the Venom F5 is projected to exceed 300 mph.

The base price for the Venom F5 is $1.6 million US dollars. The company plans to build 24 examples.
