The F5 Roadster will be sold alongside exotic brands such as Bugatti and Koenigsegg.
Hennessey Special Vehicles has announced the appointment of a new dealer in Florida. The Warren Henry Auto Group, a well-known auto retailer in North Miami, has partnered with the boutique brand to sell the Venom F5 and recently revealed Venom F5 Roadster to wealthy gearheads.
Erik Day, CFO & Partner at Warren Henry Auto Group, said clients are eager to sample the Venom F5. "Our customers look forward to experiencing the Venom F5, the world's most powerful hypercar." Miami is a prime market for the Texas-based automaker, as many collectors and exotic car aficionados reside in the city and its surrounds.
As the Venom F5 Coupe has already sold out, buyers will only get a chance to purchase the Roadster new. For monied Floridians, it's not as simple as visiting the Warren Henry Auto Group and driving away. Just 30 examples of the drop-top will be made available, for the princely sum of $3 million.
No further details have been provided, but we're guessing the newly appointed retail partner will provide Hennessey owners with after-sales service, maintenance, and repair assistance, adding convenience to the package. "We are honored to partner with a team that shares our family ideals, brand philosophies, and values strong customer relationships," said company CEO John Hennessey.
The Warren Henry Auto Group will provide Hennessey's products with suitable stablemates. The dealer may sell regular vehicles such as Toyota, Ford, and Chrysler, but also caters to the upper echelons as an official Koenigsegg, Lamborghini, and Bugatti retailer.
Erik Day remarked, "Adding the Hennessey brand to our dealer group further expands our comprehensive automotive luxury and performance offerings with an iconic American hypercar manufacturer." Buyers will surely appreciate the spirited acceleration and incredible top speed afforded by the phenomenal powertrain.
The Fury V8 is an engineering masterpiece. The twin-turbocharged 6.6-liter mill produces a substantial 1,817 horsepower and a tire-torturing 1,193 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed automated single-clutch transmission sends motivation to the rear wheels.
All that muscle translates into mesmerizing performance. The company has previously reached speeds of up to 271 mph and has plans to reach the lofty 300 mph mark in the future. Hennessey aims to achieve this with the Roadster and has engineered the vehicle to withstand such high speeds. The glass engine cover, for example, was certified for jet aircraft.
Referred to as an "unmatched driving experience," we're sure there are myriad car collectors in Florida hoping to get their hands on one of the drop-top models. While America's middle-class continues to feel the pinch, the wealthy are seemingly unaffected and are buying more ultra-luxury vehicles than ever before.
