The First Hennessey Venom F5 Has Met Its Lucky Owner

Supercars / Comments

Don't you wish you could have bought one?

Hennessey is very proud of its astonishing Venom F5 hypercar and recently showed us around the details of the car's intricate design. As much as we enjoyed watching that video, the one we saw back in April when the Venom F5 was cruising at 200 mph was even more satisfying. If you're one of the lucky few that managed to order one, you'll soon be able to drink in those details and experience that exhilaration in person, as the American house of horsepower has announced that deliveries have begun. The first example of the Hennessey Venom F5 has just been delivered, and it looks absolutely resplendent in that rich yellow hue.

The color is called Mojave Gold and was shown off in the sun at Monterey Car Week in Pebble Beach earlier this year. Other colors one could choose from included Speed Devil Blue and Blue Arione. But if you're wondering how you should spec your own Hennessey Venom F5, don't even bother. Hennessey announced back in August that the last few examples were snapped up at Monterey Car week. We don't know who ordered this particular car, but with the garage also housing the Porsche 918 Spyder, Ferrari LaFerrari, and McLaren P1, you can bet that the commissioner of this spec didn't need finance. Hopefully, the company will release more images of various customer specifications so we can get an idea of what combinations this hypercar is available in, but for now, let's reflect on the blistering performance offered by this $2.1 million American monster.

In the middle of the chassis lies a 6.6-liter twin-turbo V8 producing a stupendous 1,817 horsepower and 1,193 lb-ft of torque. Hennessey's goal for the car is very clear: go faster than 311 mph (500 kph) and become the outright fastest production car on the planet. To do that, it will need to fend off competition from the likes of Koenigsegg with the Jesko Absolut and SSC with its Tuatara. If the Venom F5 fails, Hennessey could take another shot at the crown with a hardcore GTR version. If that comes to fruition, you'd better act fast. High-end machinery like this does not stay unsold for very long.
