The first video of the Hennessey Venom F5 confirmed to us that it is only a mock-up


The Hennessey Venom F5 in the EMS.

The preparer texan desvelaba few days ago the new Hennessey Venom F5. After many months of sketches and advertisements, the sport was presented at the SEMA Show 2017 with the tag sports the world’s fastest. 1.622 CV (1.600 hp) stop short even the Bugatti Chiron, which is also indicated in the chapter aerodynamic.

The first thing that we were able to see the model were the official images, which show us a copy from all angles completely finished, although only from the outside, since not only we did not have pictures of the interior but also had all the windows tinted. Although the optical systems, both the rear as the front, are functional.

This could mean that it was an initial prototype, however, after seeing the pictures, walk the SEMA and above all, the official video of the model, already available in Youtube, we can see that, at least for the moment, we just have a scale model the brutal Venom F5.


Very few details reveal that it is a scale model.

In the video is seen clearly the manufacturing process of the scale model, and except for a brief part of the footage that appears on a V8 engine, we do not see any element that does not belong to the body of the sports. So we understand that Hennessey at the moment only have this to show.

it Is totally normal for a manufacturer, of any size, this was initially a concept to make public a new model, even a concept that is static and not functional. However, it is especially important this fact in the Venom F5, because you’re not finished yet born and already it has been crowned as the absolute monarch of the speed.

we Understand that the development of a model of this feather is not simple, and like any brand, Hennessey is not intended to uncover its secrets, advances, or in the process of development of the sport. But keep in mind that by the looks of it, still we have not presented the actual model.


it Will be manufactured as a limited edition.

we do Not believe that they are not able to do so. If you were able to convert a small Lotus in a monster like the Hennessey Venom GT, with the enough budget are perfectly able to put on the market a sporty supercharged 1600 HP. Another issue is the really fast and reliable, which can get to be.

In the video we see a final stretch in which it appears the model on the road, but clearly it is computer generated images. The new Venom F5 will come with a V8 7.4 liter supercharged able to deliver nothing less than 1.622 CV (1.600 hp) with a maximum torque of 1.762 Nm, and the maximum speed of the presumption that is 301 mph (484 km/h).

by way of curiosity, in the video description there’s a nod to Steven Tyler, the lead singer of Aerosmith (whose music sounds in the video) and the most famous owner of a Venom GT. You can follow all the news from the SEMA Show 2017 from our special coverage of the event from Las Vegas.
