Hennessey published features and photos of the 1600-hp Venom F5 engineAugust 25, 2018
At the SEMA event, which took place in November last year, Hennessey introduced a limited Venom F5 hypermarket, under the hood that housed a 1600-horsepower engine. Today the company has published its official photos and told about it new details.
Previously, foreign automobile publications reported that under the hood of the car there is a bi-turbo eight with a volume of 7.4 liters. Later it was reported that the volume of the engine would reach eight liters, but as it turned out, the real volume of the block is 7.6 liters, and its capacity is just 1 600 forces at 7,200 rpm.
The turbines of this monster develop a pressure of 1.6 bar, the compression ratio of the mixture is 9.3: 1, the torque reaches 1762 Nm at 4,400 rpm. The motor is made of aluminum with steel sleeves, the power on the wheels are transmitted through a robotic dual-disk transmission.
The engine is configured to work on Shell V-Power® NiTRO + Premium fuel, lubricating properties are provided by Pennzoil Platinum 10w-60 oil. It is worth noting that these two companies are exclusive partners of the American tuning studio.
The head of the company John Hennessy noted that this car next year will try to set new records. It is expected that Venom F5 will be able to accelerate to 482 kilometers per hour.
Such indicators the company will try to achieve thanks to the new chassis, that is, the company no longer plans to use the modernized Lotus platform, which formed the basis for Venom GT. The company also actively worked on the aerodynamics of the hypercar, reducing the level of drag to 0.33 Cx.
By the way, the current Hennessey Venom GT on the runway of the Kennedy Space Center accelerated to 435.3 kilometers per hour.
In total, the company will release 24 copies of the F5, and the buyers have already ordered 15 cars, each of which costs 1.6 million dollars.
