The US automaker Hennessey has presented a new version of the Venom F5 that has been redesigned for greater agility, better handling and high downforce. The new Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution it’s lighter, focused for exclusive track use, and currently the most powerful combustion hypercar in the world.

The new model is inspired by the Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe. The two models share nearly identical DNA, but the Revolution Coupé can be distinguished from the F5 Coupé by its different aerodynamics, suspension, engine cooling and digital telemetry. La Revolution, in other words, is the release track-only of the hypercar that the Texan brand unveiled at the Miami Motorcar Cavalcade Concours d’Elegance.

This car is truly extreme in every technical and bodywork aspect, specifically designed for track use. The already mighty remains unchanged 6.6-litre twin-turbocharged “Fury” V8 engine by Hennessey, of GM origin, which delivers a power of 1,842 hp and 1,617 Nm, with a limited top speed of 400 km/h. But the decidedly superior performance is the result of careful research and development work on set-up and aerodynamics. The Revolution cuts 45 kg compared to the road Coupé, reaching a dry weight of 1,360 kg.

The suspension has also been revised and the adaptive shock absorbers allow you to have a more precise guide. On the aerodynamic front, Hennessey has developed a carbon front splitter, a rear diffuser and a vigorous rear wing that allows for better unloading of such great power on the asphalt. On the roof there is an air intake that allows the entry of air to help cool the raging V8. It was also equipped with new forged alloy wheels for better cornering grip and better braking.

The Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution will be produced in 24 specimens priced at $2.7 million each (€2.6 million). A figure that is certainly not accessible to everyone and the fact that it is not approved for road use could suggest that it is not tempting for many. Instead, all production has already been sold.
