Texas-based hypercar maker and tuner, Hennessey, has simply unveiled a brand new, lighter-weight, track-focused model of the Hennessey Venom F5 that has been comprehensively re-engineered for elevated agility, uncompromised dealing with, and excessive downforce. The brand new Venom F5 Revolution Coupe is an apex predator on a racing circuit. Hennessey claims the Revolution is essentially the most highly effective and visceral pure-combustion hypercar on this planet.
The Venom F5 Revolution Coupe is predicated on the Hennessey Venom F5 Coupe – the 2 share practically similar DNA – but distinguishing the Revolution Coupe from its sibling are its comprehensively reworked aerodynamics, suspension, engine cooling, and digital telemetry. The engineering workforce additionally targeted on decreasing mass. Due to a scientific give attention to weight discount, the race-honed mannequin suggestions the scales beneath 3,000 kilos, making it the lightest Venom F5 mannequin.
“I led engineering on a number of the most excessive vehicles to return out of GM, together with the Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V, however nothing compares to designing, creating, and refining a race automotive for the street just like the Venom F5 Revolution. From the outset, we designed the Venom F5 hypercar to be ultra-light and monstrously highly effective, with dynamics to match. So, taking these elements and including track-focused aerodynamics, suspension, and gearing, enabled us to create a machine that’s the final visceral and emotional driving expertise.” – John ‘Heinrocket’ Heinricy, chief engineer
Mirroring the opposite Venom F5 fashions, the Revolution is mid-mounted twin-turbocharged, 6.6-liter, ‘Fury’ V8 engine makes an astonishing 1,817 bhp. Energy is distributed to the rear wheels by means of an automatic single-clutch gearbox calibrated for aggressive use. With such low mass, the Venom F5 Revolution Coupe guarantees phenomenal acceleration. To carry the beast to t cease, Carbon-ceramic brakes are fitted as normal and have muti-piston calipers.
Essentially the most seen addition to the Revolution is the full-width rear-mounted carbon fiber wing. The adjustable wing permits the proprietor to regulate the angle of assault by means of a spread of levels and is fitted with finish plates that cease the high-pressure air on prime of the wing from spilling beneath, thereby rising downforce with out extending the width of the wing. The tip plates additionally generate vortexes that information airflow and enhance aerodynamics and stability. Because of this, the rear wing delivers greater than 800 kilos of downforce at 186 mph (300 km/h) and over 1,400 kilos of downforce at 249 mph (400 km/h).
A considerably bigger entrance splitter, crafted from carbon fiber, enhances the rear-mounted wing and rear diffuser. The entrance splitter prevents air from flowing underneath the F5 Revolution Coupe, which creates a low-pressure vortex beneath the automobile. On the identical time, the prolonged rear diffuser guides air out from the hypercar’s easy underbelly. Dive planes, positioned on the entrance fascia in entrance of the wheels, aggressively channel airflow to shift the aerodynamic stability ahead, including grip to enhance turn-in. As well as, the Revolution incorporates a new roof-mounted central air scoop that delivers recent cool air to the F5’s engine bay.
The double-wishbone suspension, with extra aggressive alignment settings, is fitted with adjustable dampers that could be calibrated trackside with easy instruments. New cast alloy wheels current a bigger contact patch for improved cornering grip and enhanced braking. The automotive additionally presents a digital on-board monitor telemetry system able to measuring an array of information factors. These embody lap instances, splits, cornering G-forces, and extra. The system permits the driving force to observe the telemetry in actual time, or the information could also be saved for later evaluation or archiving.
The brand new Venom F5 Revolution Coupe will make its world debut on the Miami Motorcar Cavalcade Concours d’Magnificence on January 15, 2023. Priced at $2.7 million and restricted to only 24 models.
