Watch and listen as the Hennessey Venom F5 shoots some fire
6.6-litre twin turbo V8 gets some more dyno time, this time with added FLAMES
The last time Hennessey’s 6.6-litre V8 stepped onto the dyno, it nearly tore free of its leash. This time it’s threatening to burn them off entirely. Reacquaint yourselves with an engine nicknamed ‘Fury’.
Hennessey’s latest televisual update showcases the car’s ability to check an important hypercar box: shoot a bit of fire on downshifts. We learn nothing more about the development of the F5 – a car aiming for 311mph+ (500kmh) – but hey, there’s noise.
An industrial, thunderous noise too. The twin-turbo V8 is a heavily modified LS3 after all, here packed with lightweight internals and 3D-printed titanium compressor housings for both blowers. It redlines at 8,000rpm, producing 1,792bhp and 1,193lb ft of torque along its not-so-merry way.
Of course there’s much more to this car that outright power and noise and… fury. Read the full debrief of a hypercar that takes its moniker from the sharp end of a tornado intensity scale, here.
