The Hennessey Venom F5 an absolute performer
The Hennessey special vehicles is an American sports car manufacturer. The company is known for its power-packed sports car. Hennessey recently announced the Hennessey Venom F5. It’s a two-door coupe sports car. This car will be the company’s latest proprietary vehicle. Delta Motor Sports, England, will develop it.
Furthermore, since 2017 the Hennessey is working on a sportscar and aims to be a leader in Hypercar Industry. The completely new design, carbon fiber body with extraordinary aerodynamics makes this car exceptional in performance.
Also, Hennessey Venom F5 is capable of achieving a speed above 300mph. The lightweight body and low aerodynamic drag make this car a real gamechanger. So, this car offers world-class performance on the road as well as on the track.
First of all, this car can achieve lightweight due to the extremely lightweight chassis at its core. The carbon-fiber monocoque structure weighs 86kg. The entire focus on the low weight results in a total dry vehicle weight of 1360kg.
Also, this all-new chassis features an intricate carbon weave in a herringbone pattern. The molding of exterior and interior carbon-fiber parts require 600 separate pieces of tooling. This extraordinary achievement is only possible due to three years of research and development. Perfecting the chassis is the most crucial part in the case of hypercars.
Besides, Hennessey Venom F5 lightweight body panels reduce more weight. The carbon-fiber tub plays an important role in the car. Here, the pair of braces directly transfer external forces from suspension to the carbon-fiber monocoque. As a result, the overall stability and road holding capability increase substantially. This setup also ensures predictable handling at a very high speed.
This chassis also plays an important role in occupant’s safety. The carbon-fiber body is connected to an aluminum subframe. These subframe components deform in the event of an accident. So, occupants remain safe, as the subframe absorbs most of the impact energy.
Hennessey Venom F5 cockpit
The interiors of the car are very lean and clean. At the same time, they have beautiful elegance. The interiors mimic the aircraft cockpit. The interiors keep distractions at bay. They maintain clear visibility and functionality.
Furthermore, the F5 features butterfly doors. The full carbon-fiber steering wheel has design inspiration from aeroplane’s yoke & F1 steering wheel. Some parts of the steering wheel are wrapped by leather, specifically where our hand grips naturally. The green switchable mode dial helps you to switch modes on the fly.
Besides, the 7-inch instrument cluster changes its layout and color as we change the modes. The Hennessey Venom F5 can accommodate a maximum of two people. The bucket seats ensure maximum comfort during sudden acceleration and high-speed cornering. The lightweight carbon fiber door handle floats above the leather cladding. This highlights the union between luxury and performance.
Furthermore, the central console has slimline carbon fiber, on which different functional buttons are located. The three simple circular buttons help the gearbox operation. The tactile circular controller above this is nothing but an HVAC system controller. The 9-inch alpine touch screen infotainment system ensures your entertainment all day long.
The all-aluminum accelerator paddles ensure light-weightiness and quality. The brake paddle is wide than the accelerator paddle. The small storage area contains a tool kit by default.
The Hennessey Venom F5 features mind-blowing power. The V8 twin-turbo engine produces max power of 1817 Hp. The power to weight ratio is 1.34Hp per kg. The engine also generates max torque of 1617 Nm. This car can go 0-100 km/h in 2.6 seconds and 0-400 in 15.5 seconds. The top speed is greater than 500km/h.
Furthermore, a seven-speed semi-automatic paddle-shift transmission ensures smooth power delivery on the fly. The rear-wheel-drive ensures maximum traction at all times. The six-piston caliper from disk brakes and four-piston caliper rear disc brakes provide maximum braking power. The traction control system with limited ESP is available to the driver.
In conclusion, Hennessey Venom F5 features massive amounts of power and tractability. It also outlines luxury and performance at the same time. It is truly an extraordinary Hypercar.
