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 probably 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 almost similar DNA – but distinguishing the Revolution Coupe from its sibling are its comprehensively reworked aerodynamics, suspension, engine cooling, and digital telemetry. The engineering staff additionally targeted on lowering mass. Due to a scientific deal with weight discount, the race-honed mannequin ideas the scales beneath three,000 kilos, making it the lightest Venom F5 mannequin.
“I led engineering on a few 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 automobile 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 via 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 commonplace 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 via a variety of levels and is fitted with finish plates that cease the high-pressure air on high 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. Consequently, 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 beneath 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 clean 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 contains 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 automobile additionally affords a digital on-board monitor telemetry system able to measuring an array of knowledge factors. These embrace lap instances, splits, cornering G-forces, and extra. The system permits the driving force to observe the telemetry in actual time, or the info could also be saved for later evaluation or archiving.
The brand new Venom F5 Revolution Coupe will make its international debut on the Miami Motorcar Cavalcade Concours d’Magnificence on January 15, 2023. Priced at $2.7 million and restricted to simply 24 items.
