Why should Pagani have all the Revolución?
Texas-based tuner-turned-hypercar-maker Hennessey has revealed a track-focused version of the Venom F5 called the Venom F5 Revolution—limited to 24 units globally with each carrying a base price tag of $2.7 million. The hypercar is all set to make its public debut at the Miami Motorcar Cavalcade Concours d’Elegance on January 15, 2023.
The Venom F5 Revolution is honed by the chief engineer John “Heinrocket” Heinricy who worked on cars including Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V in the past. The track-focused machine wears a more aggressive carbon fibre bodykit that includes a significantly larger front splitter, canards/flics, a functional roof scoop, and of course, a gigantic rear wing with the ability to adjust the angle of attack. The rear wing is claimed to deliver more than 800 pounds (363 kg) of downforce at 186 mph (299 km/h) and over 1,400 pounds (635 kg) of downforce at 249 mph (401 km/h).
The double-wishbone suspension setup has more aggressive tuning, and Hennessey claims that the adjustable dampers can be calibrated with simple tools—either for track or road use. On the inside, the Venom F5 Revolution owners get a digital onboard track telemetry system that is capable of measuring an array of data points including lap times, splits, and cornering G-forces. The system allows the driver to monitor the telemetry in real-time, or the data may be saved for later analysis or archiving.
The Venom F5 Revolution is powered by the same 6.6L twin-turbo V8 ‘Fury’ engine that pumps out the same 1,355 kW (1817 bhp/1,842 metric hp) and 1,617 Nm (1,193 lb-ft) of torque as the regular Venom F5 Coupe. However, the track-focused version claims a dry weight of less than 3,000 pounds (<1,360 kg) as opposed to the regular model’s 3,000 pounds (1,360 kg). The top speed is claimed to be over 250 mph (402+ km/h).
