The 2022 Hennessey Venom F5 is the CSR2 Wakita Legendary Cup Prize Car of Season 160.
Obviously, the Venom F5 is one of the fastest cars in Tier 5.
2022 Hennessey Venom F5 SPecifications
Just about everyone knows that the goal of the Hennessey Venom F5 is to break the 300-mph mark. The U.S.-born hypercar is gradually approaching that goal, having hit 200 mph (322 km/h) in aerodynamic validation tests in 2021 and 250 mph (402 km/h) in high-speed tests in January.
The airbag-free supercar has now gone one better again. This time, it managed a speed of 271.6 mph (437.1 km/h). The run took place in February 2022 at the Johnny Bohmer Proving Grounds in Florida, where Hennessey took the Venom F5 to perform final calibrations on the steering, brakes, engine and aerodynamics.
In other words, the company’s goal was not necessarily to achieve a higher speed compared to previous tests. Nevertheless, it managed to reach a speed of 437.1 km/h (271.6 mph). Loosely based on the motto: While you’re at it …
Don’t expect another high-speed ride anytime soon, because according to company founder John Hennessey, the focus is now on making cars. If all goes according to plan, more than 12 Venom F5s could be delivered this year.
Officials at the Texas-based tuner say high-speed testing will likely resume later in 2022. Possibly then, they will bring the hypercar with its 1,817-horsepower V8 close to the 300-mph mark. Converted, that’s just under 483 mph.
Venom F5 Price
The Venom F5, which has long been sold out despite costing $2.1 million apiece, is limited to just 24 examples. It comes exclusively with a semi-automatic transmission with a single clutch and paddle shifters. The twin-turbo beast is advertised as having a top speed of more than 500 km/h, but we’ll believe it when we see it. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is said to be in 2.6 seconds, but even more impressive is the stated acceleration from 0 to 400 km/h in just 15.5 seconds.
Hennessey isn’t the only company aiming for speed records, as SSC North America also wants to hit 300 mph with the Tuatara. Hopefully, Koenigsegg also wants a piece of the pie with its Jesko Absolute.
Bugatti is no longer interested in going that fast after a prototype Chiron Super Sport 300+ reached 304.77 mph (490.47 km/h). While that wasn’t the average speed of a run in either direction required for an official record, it was still an impressive feat.
The CSR2 Venom F5
The 5 purple star Hennessey can fit 135 Fusion parts. So far nothing special. The F5 should run 6.792s. To sum up, the Venom F5 is one of the fastest Cars in Tier 5.
