Hennessey Venom F5: More details announced

Hennessey Performance has released new details about the Venom F5.

A twin-turbocharged 7.0-liter V-8 engine will be the power behind the Venom F5, delivering more than 1,400 horsepower backed by a single clutch paddle-shift transmission. Official hard numbers for power will be released at a later date.

According to company president and founder John Hennessey, “We are very excited about this next chapter of the Venom, which brings forth an all-new design that is not only a powerful and unique statement that our clients are looking for, but a vehicle that will achieve even higher performance through improved aerodynamics. We learned a great deal during the development of the Venom GT in breaking the 270-mph barrier, and we bring that experience to this new design as we look toward raising the performance bar even higher.”

Hennessey Performance will unveil the Venom F5 in 2015 with deliveries to customers in late 2016. At least 30 units will be produced for sale worldwide. Detailed pricing information hasn’t been released, but Hennessey says the Venom F5 will cost more than the Venom GT, which currently sells for $1.2 million.
