Here’s What Makes The Hennessey Venom F5 Engine So Incredible – SlashGear

Hennessey built a reputation for making the planet’s sickest and baddest souped-up cars. So for its first attempt at making a supercar, HPE aimed for the stars and created what could be the world’s fastest production car. The Venom F5 has a custom-built 6.6-liter V8 engine with forged steel connecting rods, aluminum cylinder heads, canted titanium intake valves, dry sump lubrication, a 10:1 compression ratio, and a pair of enormous precision ball bearing turbochargers with billet aluminum compressor wheels.

Those gigantic turbos produce 24 psi of boost to unlock 1,817 horsepower and 1,193 pound-feet of torque, befitting the “Fury” name. The engine sends power exclusively to the rear wheels and mates to a seven-speed CIMA single-clutch automated manual gearbox with a limited-slip differential.

As a result, the Venom F5 could rush to 60 mph from a stop in under three seconds and zero to 124 mph in under five, thanks to a 3,000-pound (1,360 kg) curb weight (and an impressive 1,298 horsepower per ton) courtesy of a carbon tub and carbon fiber body panels. With a theoretical top speed of 311 mph (500.51 kph), the Hennessey Venom F5 could seriously threaten the speed kings of Bugatti and Shelby SuperCars (SSC).
