Why does this story matter?
- Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution is more track-focused than the regular Venom F5 but still road-legal. It has been re-engineered for improved handling and more downforce.
- The supercar tips the scales at less than 1,360kg and is targeting a top speed of over 500km/h.
- It will make its global public debut on January 15, and only a few units of the four-wheeler are still available.
The car has an adjustable rear wing
Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution has a lengthy hood, a large carbon fiber air splitter, sleek headlights, dive planes in front of the wheels, and a roof-mounted air scoop. It is flanked by ORVMs, two doors, air scoops, and large multi-spoke alloy wheels. An adjustable full-width wing with stars-and-stripes endplates, taillamps, and circular exhaust tips are available on the rear end of the vehicle.
The vehicle gets bucket-style seats, track telemetry system
The Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution offers a driver-focused blacked-out cabin with red accents on the bucket-style seats and door panels. There is also an F1-inspired carbon fiber steering wheel and a minimalist dashboard. The supercar houses a track telemetry system that monitors lap times, cornering G-forces, splits, and other information in real-time. The safety of the passengers is ensured by multiple airbags.
It runs on a 1,817hp V8 mill
The Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution supercar is fueled by a 6.6-liter "Fury" V8 engine that makes a maximum power of 1,817hp and a peak torque of 1,617Nm. The mill is linked to an automated single-clutch gearbox and a limited-slip differential. A double-wishbone suspension setup with aggressive alignment settings, and adjustable dampers that permit trackside calibration, ensure better performance.
