100 of these pickups will be produced in 2021

The American studio Hennessey Performance has presented the most powerful version of the Ford F-150 pickup, called the Venom 800 Supercharged. After modifications, the power of the 5.0-liter “aspirated” V8 more than doubled – up to 816 horsepower.

For the project, Hennessey chose a modification of the F-150 Super Crew with a two-row cab, an aspirated V8 5.0 and a 10-band automatic transmission. The truck was fitted with a supercharger providing a boost pressure of 0.6 bar, a cold intake system, new fuel injectors and pump, and a stainless steel exhaust manifold.

As a result of manipulations, the engine output when using E85 bioethanol was 816 horsepower and 986 Nm of torque. For comparison: the extreme Ram 1500 TRX with the HEMI figure eight produces 712 forces.

The all-wheel drive Hennessey Venom 800 Supercharged accelerates from standstill to 60 miles (97 kilometers per hour) in 3.6 seconds and covers a quarter mile (402 meters) in 11.9 seconds. The top speed of the SUV is 187 kilometers per hour.

In addition to engine upgrades, the pickup has a new Brembo braking system with six-piston calipers and 384mm steel discs, as well as shock absorbers with external reservoirs. Plus, the studio installed special 20-inch wheels on the F-150, “shod” in 35-inch all-terrain tires.

External differences from the original include a large front bumper with additional LED lights, a radiator grill with Hennessey lettering, and serial number plates in the passenger compartment and in the engine compartment.

The starting price of the “charged” Hennesey Venom 800 Supercharged is $ 149,500. By comparison, the price of a regular F-150 in the four-door Super Crew starts at $ 35,650 in the US. In 2021, the studio will release 100 of these pickups – the first copies will go to customers in the second quarter.

Ford, meanwhile, has faced unexpectedly high interest in the as-yet-to-be-released electric version of the F-150. In this regard, the American brand decided to revise production plans and increase the volume of future assembly by one and a half times.
