816 forces and 3.6 seconds to 100 kph: the most powerful Ford pickup from Hennessey is presentedDecember 2, 2020
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.
