2018 Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6x6 by Hennessey Performance

How do you make a Ford F-150 Raptor any more awesome? Hennessey Performance has a great answer – stick an extra axle under an elongated cargo bed then add 150 horsepower. Hennessey is no stranger to making outlandish vehicles with insane levels of power. The Texas-based tuner has done several Raptor upgrades before, and naturally, their bread-n-butter is adding more horsepower to stock vehicles. But this marks the first time a 6×6 configuration has been involved.

Mercedes started the 6×6 trend in 2013 with the G63 6×6. Since then, a handful of aftermarket companies have followed those tracks. The idea behind the 6×6 setup is added traction, better payload and towing capacities, and shear badassery. One look at the G63 6×6 or the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 confirms that. Hennessey can’t confirm how well the VelociRaptor 6×6 handles in the dirt, however. The first example already has customer money on the hood. It’s also the same truck Hennessey took to the 2017 SEMA show. With SEMA over, Hennessey had only a few days to ship the truck to its owner in Florida.

Want to know more? Keep reading for details on the VelociRaptor 6×6.

What makes the 2018 Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 6×6 by Hennessey Performance special

  • 6×6 configuration with added rear axle
  • Lengthened cargo bed
  • Special rear leaf-spring & 4-link suspension
  • Larger Fox Racing shocks
  • 20-inch wheels
  • All-terrain tires
  • Hennessey front & rear bumpers
  • LED off-road lights
“It goes without saying the 6×6 portion of this build is the focal point”

It goes without saying the 6×6 portion of this build is the focal point. Hennessey achieved this by extending the F-150’s frame to accommodate another full axle and set of tires. The factory rear axle was moved rearward and a custom axle and pass-through differential rides ahead. That pass-through diff allows rotational power to turn its ring gear and the driveshaft that connects to the second rear differential. It’s a similar setup to an 18-wheeler.

The big-rig inspiration continues with the suspension system. A lengthened leaf spring pack spans between the axles and is mounted on a bar to the outside of the frame rails. A four-link setup locates each rear axle. Upgrade Fox Racing shocks similar to the Raptor’s stock shocks control the bounce of the one-off suspension system. To match the rear suspension, the independent front suspension was lifted for longer travel and higher ground clearance. Upgraded shocks are here too.

“Hennessey says the 6×6 conversion adds roughly 700 pounds to the Raptor’s curb weight, but the extra boost makes the 6×6 quicker than the stock truck”

Hennessey couldn’t leave the Raptor’s high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 alone, either. The engine normally makes 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, which are very healthy numbers for a small-displacement V-6 with a factory warranty. Hennessey already had its VelociRaptor 600 package developed for the Raptor, so the kit is added to the 6×6.

The engine upgrade includes a high-flow intake, a modified wastegate system, an air-to-air intercooler upgrade, a cat-back exhaust system, and a recalibration of the ECU. The result is 600 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 622 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. Hennessey says the 6×6 conversion adds roughly 700 pounds to the Raptor’s curb weight, but the extra boost makes the 6×6 quicker than the stock truck. The sprint to 60 mph is said to happen in 4.9 seconds.

“Hennessey is only building 100 examples for 2018”

Other modifications include custom front and rear bumpers, LED off-road lights, 20-inch wheels with Toyo Open Country R/T tires, a bed-mounted roll bar, and VelociRaptor 6×6 graphics on the door, fender, and tailgate. Inside, Hennessey will customize the interior to customer tastes, but the standard upgrade includes a numbered plaque with the vehicle’s build number.

Hennessey is only building 100 examples for 2018. The allotment is split 50-50, with half staying in the U.S. and half offered to customers around the world. Don’t expect to see a VelociRaptor 6×6 in the crowded streets of downtown London, but rather climbing up the sand dunes of the United Arab Emirates. Those folks in Dubai really love extravagant, over-the-top vehicles, after all.

Paying for the 2018 VelociRaptor 6×6 takes Oil Sheik money, too. Pricing starts at $349,000 and goes up from there, depending on what options a customer adds.

So, what do you think? Would you drive a six-wheeled mega Raptor or is it too much vehicle for you to handle? Let us know in the comments below.

PostHeaderIcon Potent Poison – Hennessey Venom F5 Vs. Hennessey Venom GT

On October 31st, Hennessey Performance Engineering unveiled the Venom F5 hypercar at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Based out of Houston, Texas, the tuner shop flies by the motto “Making Fast Cars Faster Since 1991,” and specializes in adding huge output to sports cars that already tout impressive power numbers from the factory. However, with the Venom F5, HPE takes a step towards full-blown manufacturer territory. As a follow-up to the preceding Lotus-based Venom GT, the Venom F5 took four years to develop, and it’s essentially a brand-new vehicle. Outside, the F5 enjoys a fresh look and new aerodynamics, while under the skin is a bespoke carbon fiber chassis and an updated engine with more displacement and more power. Like the Venom GT before it, the F5 is in the running for fastest car on the planet, challenging the world’s best with claims of 300 mph at the top end. So then – how does it stack up against its forerunner?

To find out, we put together the following comparison piece, analyzing the exteriors, interiors, drivetrain, chassis, and pricing for both. Read on to see how Hennessey made its Venom even more potent.

Continue reading for the full comparison.

Exterior


2016 Hennessey Venom GT - image 672244
“While easier to produce, the Venom GT’s Exige roots constrained Hennessey in terms of aerodynamics.”

Right from the off, the Lotus roots of the Venom GT are obvious. The styling up front and in back are quite similar to what you’d find on the diminutive British sports car – for example, the front end uses long, drawn-out, diamond-shaped housings for the headlights, which are laid high on the plumped-up fenders and draw the eye rearwards while simultaneously enhancing the car’s natural visual width. The greenhouse brings the side panels inwards before once again curving back out towards the flared rear fenders, giving the car an hourglass shape when viewed from above. In back is a curvaceous tail and short overhang, with a quartet of rounded taillights.

However, while the styling is similar, the Venom GT stands out in a variety of ways. First and foremost are the vastly expanded exterior dimensions, with the Hennessey measured at 183.3 inches in length and 77 inches in width. That’s an increase of 33.8 inches and 9.2 inches respectively compared to the Lotus’ 149.5-inch length and 68-inch width. Height is nearly identical at 44.7 inches for the Hennessey and 45.6 inches for the Exige.

“The F5 works around this with a totally clean-sheet design approach, creating its own aero solutions with a brand-new chassis.”

It’s almost as if the Venom GT is a tuner version of the Lotus, albeit with extreme modifications. However, while easier to produce, the Venom GT’s Exige roots constrained Hennessey in terms of aerodynamics – the company had to work around the Lotus design, which wasn’t necessarily ready for the incredible top speeds Hennessey had planned.

The F5 works around this with a totally clean-sheet design approach. Rather than adapting to the bones of the Exige, Hennessey managed to create its own aero solutions with a brand-new chassis. Utilizing modern technology like computational fluid dynamics programs, the Venom F5 gets a lower coefficient of drag, down to 0.33 compared to the Venom GT’s 0.44. That’s a major step forward for a car that’s so focused on maximizing top speed, and it’s achieved thanks to a flat underbody and active downforce elements.


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742053
“Venom F5 gets a lower coefficient of drag, down to 0.33 compared to the Venom GT’s 0.44.”

What’s more, we think the carbon fiber body panels of the F5 look great. It definitely looks like an evolution of the GT’s aesthetic, but it’s also got it’s own thing going on, with tons of aggression befitting of such a vehicle.

Nice one, Hennessey.

Interior


2016 Hennessey Venom GT - image 744610
“All told, the Venom GT does a good job in enhancing the Lotus’ barebones approach to cabin design.”

Much like its exterior spec, the Venom GT’s cabin is heavily based on the Lotus Exige. The layout is practically identical, with a small dash, rounded air vents, matching door panels, and minimal infotainment options. The analog gauge cluster
is also the same in the Venom GT.

However, the Hennessey product still stands out thanks to a select number of upgrades. The materials in the GT are nicer, with quilted upholstery added to the top of the dash, the door panel inserts, and the seats. Leather and Alcantara are in ample supply, while contrast stitching adds a little extra flair. The seats themselves were swapped for more supportive bucket units, while the steering wheel is a unique three-spoke unit covered in soft stuff. The floors are also carpeted, and a custom roll cage wrapped in quilted upholstery keeps it safe. Carbon fiber for the central tunnel, instrumentation shroud, and HVAC control pod rounds it off.


2016 Hennessey Venom GT - image 744611
“Although we have yet to get an official look at the Venom F5’s cabin, we’d naturally expect even more comfort and amenities.”

All told, the Venom GT does a good job in enhancing the Lotus’ barebones approach to cabin design. And although we have yet to get an official look at the Venom F5’s cabin, we’d naturally expect even more comfort and amenities. At this price range, a high degree of customizability is expected, with even more Alcantara and leather throughout. Carbon fiber will once again play a major role, while aluminum and brushed metal will add to the premium feel. Further infotainment features are a must, with a large touchscreen for the dash, plus smartphone connectivity. Finally, the cabin space should be a bit larger, while we’d also like it if the doors open up in a dramatic gullwing fashion.

Drivetrain


2016 Hennessey Venom GT - image 654419
“The Venom GT uses a twin-turbo 7.0-liter LSX V-8 that delivers 1,244 horsepower and 1,155 pound-feet of torque”

While aero performance is key and interior comfort is nice, the true heart of Hennessey’s vehicles is in the engine spec. For the Venom GT, that means a twin-turbo 7.0-liter LSX V-8, with the GM-sourced powerplant boosted to 1,244 horsepower and 1,155 pound-feet of torque. Impressive, no doubt, but the last of the GT’s (2016) got even more of the go-stuff thanks to a tune to make it run on E85 Flexfuel. That meant even more boost, up to 26 psi from the previous 19 psi, with the last Venom GT managing to pump out as much as 1,451 horsepower at 7,200 rpm. Routing the muscle rearwards is a Ricardo six-speed manual transmission.

With proper application of the long skinny pedal, the Venom GT manages to hit 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, 100 mph in 4.4 seconds, and 200 mph in 12.8 seconds. The quarter mile is dispatched in 9.4 seconds at 167 mph. To help put that in perspective with the European competition, the Venom GT can sprint to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 10.9 seconds and 400 km/h (249 mph) in 18.1 seconds. Top speed is rated at an astounding 280 mph.


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742060
“The configuration is the same, but peak output and displacement both see a bump. As a result, acceleration figures take a tumble.”

Of course, any follow-up to the Venom GT would need even more, and the Venom F5 delivers – big time. The configuration is the same (mid-mounted twin-turbo V-8), but displacement rises to 7.4 liters. Peak output is also up, with as much as 1,600 horsepower and 1,300 pound-feet of torque routed to the rear wheels through a seven-speed single-clutch paddle-shifter transmission.

We’re still waiting for Hennessey to put the F5 through some public real-world testing, but predictions for the speed and acceleration potential are impressive, to say the least. The run to 300 km/h (186 mph) should take less than 10 seconds, which would make the F5 quicker than a modern F1 car in the test. The run to 400 km/h (249 mph) and back down to 0 will take less than 30 seconds, which would beat such performance heavyweights as the Bugatti Chiron and Koenigsegg Agera RS. Finally, and most importantly, Hennessey is claiming a top speed of 300 mph.

Incredible stuff.

Chassis And Handling


2016 Hennessey Venom GT - image 672245

With its much larger exterior dimensions and enormous turbo powerplant, it should come as no surprise that the Hennessey Venom GT weighs a good deal more than its standard Exige counterpart, tipping the scales at 2,743 pounds. That’s a whopping 728 pounds more than the 2,015-pound Lotus.

However, the Venom F5 is even portlier than the GT, most likely due to its larger engine, paddle-shift transmission, and potentially upgraded interior spec. Curb weight is up to 2,950 pounds, making it a little over 200 pounds heavier than the GT.


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742065
“The Venom F5 is heavier than the GT, most likely due to its larger engine, paddle-shift transmission, and potentially upgraded interior spec.”

Still, that ain’t bad. The F5 has just 1.84 pounds for every horsepower to push around, as opposed to 1.89 pounds per horsepower for the GT.

Finally, both cars get Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for grip.

Prices


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742063

Both the Venom GT and the Venom F5 offer very limited production numbers and seven-figure price tags. The GT’s asking price comes to $1.2 million, while the F5 costs a bit more at $1.6 million.

Conclusion


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742058

All told, the Venom F5 is absolutely a worthy successor to the Venom GT. Everything about it is more impressive, and I especially like how Hennessey decided to do its own thing in terms of exterior styling, aerodynamics, and the carbon fiber chassis. With a product like this, the Texas tuner has a real shot at taking out the best of the best from the world of boutique hypercars.

Now it just has to prove it in the real world.

PostHeaderIcon Quick Comparison – Hennessey Venom F5 Vs. Bugatti Chiron Vs. Koenigsegg Agera RS

Let’s say you want a car that’s fast – like, world-beating fast. The kind of fast that’ll get you thrown in jail quicker than most cars can reach the 60-mph mark. The kind of fast usually reserved for aircraft. We’re talking the bleeding edge of speed here, the cream of the crop in terms of moving across the face of the Earth on four wheels. Incredibly, there’s actually several options to choose from, assuming you’ve got the bank account to back it. Up here, at the peak of the mountain, you’ll find the Henessey Venom F5, the Bugatti Chiron, and the Koenigsegg Agera RS going head-to-head-to-head, each a top trump in modern street-legal performance. But which is the best?

The Hennessey Venom F5 is the newcomer of the group, with a recent debut at the 2017 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Offered as a follow-up to the Lotus-based Venom GT, the F5 builds on the successes of its forerunner with all new everything, including a fresh chassis, revised aero, and a tuned-up engine, each of which was built from the ground up to conquer all challengers. Chief amongst those challengers is the Bugatti Chiron, the standard-bearer when it comes to ultimate high-dollar speed, rocking 8 liters of quad-boosted internal combustion and a reputation for superlative performance. Finally, we have the Koenigsegg Agera RS, which just set a new world record by going 277.9 mph on a closed road in the Nevada desert.

But while top speed is obviously a major factor here, what about the rest of the car? What about the way it looks, the interior, and the chassis? In this quick comparison, we’ll take a brief, but well-rounded look at each of these amazing vehicles and go beyond V-max to find out how they stack up.

Continue reading for a quick comparison between the Hennessey Venom F5, the Bugatti Chiron, and the Koenigsegg Agera RS.

Exterior

Hennessey Venom F5


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742052

At first blush, we were delighted to see the Venom F5’s new exterior design. It’s a seriously good-looking piece of kit, breaking from the old Lotus-look of the preceding Venom GT to create something totally new. The aesthetic is simple, but effective, with a traditional super car stance that hugs the ground with wide hips and a broad nose. The fenders rise high over the tall wheels, while the various aero elements are finished in black under the brightly colored body panels. The headlights are long and thin, stretching towards the rear in drawn-out strips that lead the eye towards a slim waistline. In back is a large rear wing, below which is a trio of exhaust pipes.

With body panels made from carbon fiber, the Venom F5 cuts substantial weight, a vital element to its performance. However, Hennessey also sought to find a balance between reducing the coefficient of drag for high-speed record-breaking, while also maintaining enough downforce to keep the machine planted while traveling at hypersonic velocity. Helping it to achieve that juggling act are active wing elements and a flat underbody, which help to bring the Cd down to 0.33, making the F5 much more slippery than the preceding Venom GT.

Bugatti Chiron


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 730338

Placed next to the competition, the Bugatti Chiron has a rather, eh, unique look to it. The whole thing is much more bubbly and rounded than the other two, with a bulbous nose and tear drop-like proportions in the profile. A set of horizontal LED headlights frame the front fascia, complemented by a duo of horizontal intakes closer to the pavement. In all, the Chiron continues the look originally set forth by the Bugatti Veyron and developed by the Gran Turismo Concept, and sports classic Bugatti features like a C-shaped Bugatti line in the flanks and an upside-down U-shaped intake in front.

However, don’t think for a second the shape of the Chiron is anything other than highly functional. When dealing with speeds and power at this level, every tiny detail can have a huge impact on overall performance. For example, those C-lines in the sides help to funnel air into the side intakes, force-feeding the radiators with a blast of cool air to keep the engine running in top form. The rear wing is active as well, tucking in down the straights and going vertical in the braking zones. And while some may deride its unconventional style, there’s no doubt that the Chiron is instantly recognizable because of it.

Koenigsegg Agera RS


2015 Koenigsegg Agera RS - image 619945

If we had to characterize the Agera RS when viewing it alongside the other two entries in this comparison, we’d actually call it a bit “understated.” Granted, that statement is highly, highly relative, as on its own the Agera RS is an extremely exciting car to look at. It’s just that compared to the Hennessey Venom F5 and Bugatti Chiron, it’s not quite as exciting. The angles and details are simpler, straighter, and uncluttered, without the ultra-pointy sharpness of the Venom, or the rounded muscle bulges of the Chiron. Instead, what you get is more of a traditional “speed wedge” design, with a broad, flat nose, central greenhouse, and flat rear end.

The whole thing is made from carbon kevlar, and improves on the aero set-up of the preceding Agera R and One:1 thanks to revisions like a new front fascia, an extended front splitter, and a seriously curvaceous rear wing. You’ll also find active wing elements front and back, with electronic adjustability for a more tunable package. The net result is a ton of extra stick at speed, with that rear wing making as much as a half-ton of downforce at 155 mph.

Interior

Hennessey Venom F5


2011 Hennessey Venom GT - image 413008

Note: Hennessey Venom GT pictured here.

As of this writing, Hennessey has elected not to provide in-depth details on what the Venom F5 is offering in terms of interior appointment. That said, we can still speculate based on what we’ve seen from Hennessey in the past.

For example, take the preceding Exige-based Venom GT, which spruced up the barebones Lotus platform with nicer upholstery, carpets, aluminum surrounds, and high-end carbon fiber trim pieces. We’d expect something even nicer from the F5, with leather and Alcantara coverings, digital instrumentation, and maybe even some basic infotainment gear as well. Racing harnesses will keep passengers in one spot, while a central touch screen will provide the interface for the various onboard systems. Long story short, the Venom F5 won’t go over the top with luxury, but it won’t be totally stripped down, either.

Bugatti Chiron


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 727472

One look at the Chiron’s cabin is all you need to confirm that yes, Bugatti does indeed know what it’s doing when it comes to making an interior. The whole thing looks cohesive and well put together, with flowing lines that resonate with confidence and elegance. The layout includes a central divider that mimics the C-shaped Bugatti line seen outside, while the central console swoops down from the dash in a single piece of carbon, studded with polished aluminum switches. Behind the gorgeous three-spoke steering wheel is a central analog speedometer flanked by a pair of digital readouts, while a high-end stereo system provides an alternative soundtrack to the burbling exhaust note.

All told, the Bugatti Chiron’s interior is an absolute masterpiece, and it’s definitely in the running for best-looking interior for a production car in the world.

Koenigsegg Agera RS


2015 Koenigsegg Agera RS - image 619946

Like its exterior styling, the Koenigsegg Agera RS gets a rather simple layout for the cabin. Bare carbon is once again the material of choice, with prominent sheets of the stuff laid across the door panels, central console, and dash. Rounded air vents are placed at the appropriate locations, while a digital display in the dash relays pertinent performance info. Below the screen is a series of buttons and knobs arranged in a circular layout, complementing the car’s naturally clean aesthetic. Carbon-backed bucket seats provide a place to sit.

It’s a straightforward approach to interior design, and should be well appreciated by minimalists. In fact, compared to the Bugatti, we’d almost call it antiseptic.

Drivetrain

Hennessey Venom F5


2011 Hennessey Venom GT - image 412995

Note: Hennessey Venom GT pictured here.

While we have yet to get a clear shot of what it looks like, we do know all about the important numbers tagged to the Venom F5’s party piece. Making the noise is a newly developed 7.4-liter V-8, which gets stuffed by a double-dose of turbocharging to produce a whopping 1,600 horsepower and 1,300 pound-feet of torque, all of which routs to the rear by way of a seven-speed single-clutch paddle-shift gearbox.

All told, it’s a surprisingly old school approach to the question of going fast, especially lined up against the modern mega-hybrids of the world. That lack of extra gear once again helps the Venom save weight, and the net result is blisteringly quick acceleration numbers. While real world confirmation is still forthcoming, Hennessey claims a run from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) in less than 10 seconds, quicker than a modern Formula 1 car. The run to 249 mph (400 km/h) and back to a standstill should take less than 30 seconds. Finally, the big number – Hennessey says the Venom F5 will do 300 mph at the top end, which should beat the other two entries on this list. That is, of course, assuming Hennessey actually follows through on that claim.

Bugatti Chiron


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 732100

While the Chiron certainly stands out thanks to its unique exterior styling and magnificent interior, the Bug’s biggest headline is what its got going on just behind the driver’s seat. Mounted longitudinally at the mid-ship position is an 8.0-liter W-16 engine, which gets boosted by no less than four turbochargers to produce a meaty 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque, 296 horsepower and 74 pound-feet of torque more than the preceding Veyron SuperSport. All of it hits the ground through a high-performance Haldex AWD system, which is fed by a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

Put your foot down, and you’ll hit 60 mph in 2.4 seconds, while 120 mph arrives in 6.5 seconds. The sprint to 190 mph takes 13.6 seconds, while 250 mph takes 32.6 seconds. Top speed is limited at 261 mph, as the heavyweight Chiron creates enormous strain on the tires at higher speeds. However, if equipped with rubber robust enough to handle the forces at play, the Chiron could theoretically reach 288 mph.

Koenigsegg Agera RS


2015 Koenigsegg Agera RS - image 622407

Unlike the Bugatti’s exotic, quad-turbo, infinity cylinder powerplant, the engine in the Agera RS is much closer in layout and set-up to the Hennessey Venom F5. The spec includes a 5.0-liter V-8 plumbed with just two turbos. Output is rated at 1,160 horsepower at 7,800 rpm and 940 pound-feet of torque at 4,100 rpm. Impressive stuff, no doubt, but if desired, buyers can throw on the 1 Megawatt package to boost their RS up to 1,341 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 1,000 pound-feet of torque at 6,000 rpm when drinking an E85 ethanol fuel blend.

On its own, that’s an absurd amount of muscle on tap, but in company like this, the Koenigsegg RS might look a little, well, underpowered. Luckily, all those ponies translate into world-beating speed all the same with the 0-to-60 mph sprint done in less than 3 seconds and the run to 124 mph done in less than 7 seconds. What’s more, the RS currently claims the title for fastest production car in the world, recently topping out at an astonishing average of 277.9 mph. And while both of the rivals listed here could theoretically beat that figure, it don’t mean a thing until it actually happens.

Chassis And Handling

Hennessey Venom F5

One of the Venom F5’s most important characteristics is its low curb weight, a feature that Hennessey sought to maximize (or minimize, as the case may be) throughout the vehicle’s development. Thanks to the carbon fiber chassis underneath, the carbon fiber body panels outside, and all the other composite details in between, the Venom F5 tips the scales at just under 3,000 pounds, or 2,950 pounds to be exact.

That makes a big difference for a variety of reasons. Not only does it allow the F5 to run standard Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 tires, but it should also make the car somewhat lively in the corners, assisted by standard carbon ceramics for stopping

power. We’ll have to wait for confirmation of that (no one has actually driven one yet outside the Hennessey development crew), but either way, we’re hoping this thing won’t be a one-trick pony.

Bugatti Chiron

Under the skin, the Chiron is similar to its Veyron predecessor, but updated to meet the rigors of modern hypercardom. Improvements include a new carbon fiber monocoque chassis, with a carbon rear subframe for even greater torsional rigidity. The suspension was also redesigned, while the electric power steering gets a few new tweaks as well. Carbon silicon carbide brakes make for lighter discs, with eight-pots in front and six-pots in the back.

Despite the extensive use of exotic materials like carbon fiber and titanium, the Chiron is still extremely heavy, weighing in a concrete-crushing 4,400 pounds. As such, pricey Michelin tires are required to keep it planted, with a staggered diameter at 20 inches in front and 21 inches rear, sized at 285/30 and 355/25 respectively.

Koenigsegg Agera RS

Unsurprisingly, the Koenigsegg Agera RS also utilizes a monocoque construction, with carbon fiber laid over an aluminum honeycomb core. The suspension is composed of double-wishbones in front and carbon fiber upper wishbones in back, plus two-way electronically adjustable gas shocks, and pushrod-operated Triplex dampers in the rear. The ride height is electronically adjustable, while a rack and pinion system helps it steer. Koenigsegg’s very own hallow carbon fiber wheels take their place in the corners. These rollers are super lightweight, yet appropriately large, with 19 inches of diameter and 9.5 inches of width in front, plus 20 inches of diameter and 12.5 inches of width in the rear. Michelin’s Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 are once again used for performance, while ceramic brakes are fore and aft, with branded 6-pot calipers in front and branded 4-pots in back.

All told, the Agera RS is relatively sprightly, tipping the scales at 3,075 pounds. Throw in multiple settings for the electronic handling aides, and this Koenigsegg is a beast on the track, whether you’re storming down a straight or attacking a corner.

Prices

Hennessey Venom F5


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742063

Pricing for the Venom F5 starts at $1.6 million, and should include a wide array of customization options. Just 24 will be made, with the owner’s list hand-selected by Mr. Hennessey himself.

Bugatti Chiron


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 667486

If you fancy the Chiron, you can pick one up for about $2.8 million. Production is a slow process, but not limited like the Hennessey, and customization options are even more plentiful.

Koenigsegg Agera RS


2015 Koenigsegg Agera RS - image 620259

Finding an exact price for the Agera RS is a bit trickier, but considering the standard Agera costs $2.1 million, expect the RS to be, well, more. Just 25 are slated for production.

Conclusion


Quick Comparison – Hennessey Venom F5 Vs. Bugatti Chiron Vs. Koenigsegg Agera RS - image 743250

So then, after looking at each of these three amazing cars, where do we stand?

Let’s take it section by section. First up, the exterior. Each of these cars is, without a doubt, a very striking thing to behold. Each is also absurdly aerodynamic, folding the air around it with the dexterity of a jet fighter. However, the key is finding a balance between beauty and aero trickery, and in that respect, the Hennessey Venom gets the nod. We think it simply looks better than the other two, while still managing to stick at speed, and that gives it the win in our book.

Next up, the interior. The Chiron takes the win here, hands down. I mean, seriously, just look at the picture below and bask in the absurd awesomeness that is the Chiron’s cabin. The other two are fine, but next to the Bugatti, they look like cut-rate commuter sedans from the ‘90s.


2018 Bugatti Chiron - image 667493
“If you need a high-end cabin to go with your absurd speed, then the Chiron has you covered.”

But what about the engine and drivetrain? While all three offer insane levels of output, we’re once again partial to the Chiron. We love the unusual cylinder arrangement, high-tech turbo system, and beefy AWD, and although the Hennessey has it beat in terms of raw power and the Koenigsegg wins out in terms of weight, the Bug’s otherworldly 8.0-liter W-16 is what really gets our juices flowing.

Speaking of weight, let’s not forget how important the chassis and handling are to keeping these things well-rounded in the long run. While power is great, the ability to apply it properly can make all the difference, and in that respect, the Koenigsegg Agera RS takes the win. This thing was made for the track, and its evident that the Swedes paid close attention to making it much more than just a straight-line superstar.


2015 Koenigsegg Agera RS - image 736455

Finally, there’s the price. At just $1.6 million, the Venom F5 looks like an absolute bargain against the Bugatti and Koenigsegg, especially if it really can do all the things Hennessey claims it can do.

“At the end of the day, we’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t acknowledge the fact that the top speed is still the spec that matters most in this space.”

Of course, at the end of the day, we’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t acknowledge the fact that the top speed is still the spec that matters most in this space. Bragging rights are paramount, and as such, the Koenigsegg Agera RS is the current king. That said, it’s unlikely to stay at the top for the long, as the battle continues for dominance in high-dollar velocity.

Will Hennessey prove its 300-mph claims? Will Bugatti recover the title it originally held with the Veyron? Will Koenigsegg go back to Nevada with something even faster?

Rest assured – we’ll be watching.

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Venom F5

We live in some truly incredible times. In the fight for the title of fastest production car in the world, there’s always something new on the horizon, some clever new speed tool that manages to warp what’s possible with four wheels and an engine, setting a new standard by which all other competitors are judged. This is exactly that, the latest and greatest in the world of hypercars. Recently revealed in Las Vegas at SEMA, the Venom F5 is a follow-up to Hennessey’s first-gen Venom GT from 2011, offered as a clean-slate approach to the problem of going faster than all the rest. Now breaking cover after four years in development, the Venom F5 is built in Texas and touts itself as America’s Hypercar. The F5 name is nod to the most powerful tornadoes rated on the Fujita scale, and for good reason – low weight, low drag, and a Texas-sized dose of turbocharged V-8 ponies at the rear wheels combine for a top speed predicted to eclipse 300 mph. Shots most definitely fired.

“We’ve designed F5 to be timeless so that in 25 years it will still have a level of performance and design that will be unmatched,” explains Hennessey Performance Engineering CEO and Founder, John Hennessey. We can’t wait to get a closer look at this thing, and we’re guessing you can’t either. Read on for the details.

Exterior

Fast Facts

-  Clean-slate design approach
-  0.33 Cd, lower than Venom GT
-  Active aero elements
-  Lightweight carbon fiber body


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742054

Right from the off, we’re enthralled by the way this thing looks. It’s got the otherworldly lines of a true modern hypercar, eschewing the older Venom GT’s Lotus-inspired tuner-special look for something all its own.

The brand-new look is very exciting indeed, and arrives as the product of a blank-sheet approach created exclusively by Hennessey and his team. That fresh start gives the F5 a leg up on its predecessor by allowing for more elegant aerodynamic solutions that simply weren’t possible with the Elise-bodied GT.

“The fresh start gives the F5 a leg up on its predecessor by allowing for more elegant aerodynamic solutions that simply weren’t possible with the Elise-bodied GT.”

To that end, Hennessey employed advanced computational fluid dynamic (CFD) calculations to make the Venom F5 cut through the air as easily as possible. Features like a flat underfloor and active wing elements work together to bless the speed slab with a Cd of 0.33, making it significantly more streamlined than the Venom GT. And although Hennessey didn’t say anything about downforce, rest assured it’s got the right stuff to stick at speed.

What’s more, the car’s entire body was made from carbon fiber, meaning it’s extremely lightweight. More on that in a bit.

Interior

Fast Facts

-  Interior spec not yet known
-  Shouldn’t be stripped down
-  Leather and aluminum both likely


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742060

We have yet to get the skinny on what’s going on inside the cabin of the Venom F5, but based on what we saw from the Venom GT, there are a few assumptions we can safely make. Long story short, expect a relatively nice cabin space. Yeah, it won’t be like a Rolls-Royce Phantom or anything like that, but it won’t be some hardcore, stripped-out bunker either.

We’re guessing loads of high-end materials, like Alcantara and leather upholstery, as well as aluminum and carbon fiber trim bits. It might even get a small touchscreen as well. What’s more, it’ll be large enough to accommodate an average American’s backside, which means oodles of room. Digital instrumentation behind the steering makes sense, as do harnesses to keep the pilot in place while testing the car’s ludicrously high limits.

“Yeah, it won’t be like a Rolls-Royce Phantom or anything like that, but it won’t be some hardcore, stripped-out bunker either.”

We’d also expect to see some fanciness with the door operation, with something like a gullwing hinge utilized. Because why not add a little extra drama to the thing? Sure it might add a little weight, but we think it’s probably quite necessary when looking at those extended side sills.

Drivetrain

Fast Facts

-  Twin-turbo 7.4-liter V-8 engine
-  1,600 horsepower and 1,300 pound-feet of torque
-  300-mph top speed
-  Quicker to 300 km/h than an F1 car
-  Faster 0-to-400 km/h-to-0 time than Chiron and Agera RS


2016 Hennessey Venom GT - image 654421

Note: Hennessey Venom GT pictured here.

While the previous Venom GT got an incredible twin-turbo 7.0-liter LSX V-8 (pictured above) tuned to produce 1,244 horsepower and 1,155 pound-feet of torque, the new Venom GT ups the ante with even more power. And displacement.

Mounted in the middle is a brand-spanking-new 7.4-liter V-8 engine, which once again utilizes two turbochargers for adding on the power. In an interview with Top Gear, Hennessey confirmed that he and his team thought about incorporating a hybrid set-up, a popular choice these days, and possibly even a quad-turbo set-up like the F5’s primary competition, the Buggati Chiron. However, in the end, both ideas got the axe over concerns of adding too much complexity, and more importantly, too much weight.

“I’m a purist. I like simple, elegant functionality, and that’s not a knock against hybrids, but they’re for the big OEMs to do,” Hennessey told Top Gear.

“Mounted in the middle is a brand-spanking-new 7.4-liter V-8 engine, which once again utilizes two turbochargers for adding on the power. Simplicity and efficacy are the name of the game here.”

Makes sense to us. And in all honesty, it’s a refreshing approach in a world where it’s usually assumed more technology is always a good thing.

Despite its somewhat simple approach to making the go, the Venom F5 has oodles of output to its name – up to 1,600 horsepower and 1,300 pound-feet of torque.

Impressive, no doubt, but here’s the really important number – 300 mph. Plus. That’s right, the Hennessey says the F5 will be able to eclipse the elusive 300-mph mark. Truly incredible times, indeed.

Compare those figures to the preceding GT’s 1,245 horsepower and 270 mph top speed, and you can see why the F5 took four years to create.


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742052
“Here’s the really important number – 300 mph. Plus. Truly incredible times, indeed.”

Routing the power exclusively to the rear wheels is a seven-speed single-clutch paddle-shift transmission, which we think is the right replacement for the GT’s Ricardo six-speed manual. “Why no double-clutch?” you might ask. Once again, simplicity seems to be the name of the game. Of course, if you absolutely must row your own, word has it a third-pedal option is on the way.

Let’s get back to those performance numbers. Hennessey says the Venom F5 will go from 0 to 186 mph (300 km/h) in less than 10 seconds, which makes it quicker than the current crop of Formula 1 cars. What’s more, going from a dig to 249 mph (400 km/h) and back down to 0 takes less than 30 seconds, making the Venom F5 a better performer than the Koenigsegg Agera RS and Bugatti Chiron.

Of course, it bears mentioning that Hennessey has yet to perform the real-world testing required to prove these numbers, but based on the firm’s track record, it’s safe to bet the F5 will hit the mark.

Chassis And Handling

Fast Facts

-  Carbon fiber chassis
-  Weighs less than 3,000 pounds
-  Normal Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742069

Like the rest of the vehicle, the Venom F5 gets a brand-new chassis under all those sleek carbon fiber body panels. That’s right – you won’t find any of the old Venom’s Lotus bones here.

As you’d probably expect, the Venom F5 was built around a carbon fiber chassis, once again cutting out unnecessary weight without sacrificing rigidity. All said and done, the Venom F5 weighs in at 2,950 pounds, which means there’s less than 2 pounds for each horsepower to motivate.


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742059
“The Venom F5 was built around a carbon fiber chassis. Curb weight is rated at 2,950 pounds, which means there’s less than 2 pounds for each horsepower to motivate.”

Interestingly, that makes the Venom F5 heavier than the preceding GT by a little over 200 pounds. Culprits for this increase include the bespoke body, the automatic transmission, and the larger engine. That said, tipping the scales at less than 3,000 pounds is still an impressive feat, especially against such heavyweights as the 4,400-pound Bugatti Chiron.

The lower weight also means the Venom F5 doesn’t need tires made from unobtanium to test the upper limits of speed, unlike its Buggy competition. Michelin’s Pilot Sport Cup 2 compound provides the traction for the F5.

Finally, carbon-ceramic brakes haul it all down, while also adding a little lightness along the way.

Prices


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742063

So what’s this bleeding edge of American-bred performance cost? Pricing starts at $1.6 million, and it’s rumored that there will be a variety options on the table for customization. We’re imagining a nicer interior spec and a race-ready spec as just a few examples.

Just 24 individual units are slated for production, with deliveries scheduled for early 2019. Production will take place at Hennessey headquarters in Sealy, Texas.

If you want one, placing an order isn’t a simple matter of filling out a form and sending a check. According to Top Gear, you’ve actually gotta apply for the privilege of owning a Venom F5, and John Hennessey himself is responsible for ultimately choosing who will see one in their garage.

How very Ferrari-esque, Mr. Hennessey. That exclusivity will undoubtedly pique the interest of collectors.

How Should We Measure Fast? - image 729361

If the Venom F5 came with crosshairs, the safe bet is they’d be aimed at the Bugatti Chiron. And rightfully so. The Chiron’s predecessor, the Veyron, was arguably the model that originally launched us into the modern age of hypercars, and the Chiron continues that tradition with an 8.0-liter W-16 engine boosted by four turbos to produce upwards of 1,500 horsepower. Properly applied to the pavement by way of a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and Haldex AWD system, the Chiron manages a top speed in excess of 260 mph.

The speed freaks from Sweden also have a play in this whole “fastest production car in the world” game, and it’s called the Agera RS. Propelled by a twin-turbo 5.0-liter V-8 producing as much as 1,160 horsepower and 944 pound-feet of torque, this mighty machine manages the 0-to-400 km/h-to-0 run in a record-breaking 36.44 seconds. The question is – can it hold off the shock and awe of Hennessey’s Venom F5?

Read the full review here.

Conclusion


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742061

Hennessey likes to frame the Venom F5 as “America’s Hypercar,” something that’s on par with the best of the best from Bugatti, Ferrari, and McLaren, and on balance, we think that’s a fair characterization. After all, what other U.S.-built, bespoke performance machine can make that claim?

However, Hennessey also likes to characterize itself as an underdog, and while it’s certainly a smaller operation than Bugatti and the Volkswagen Group (according to the company’s LinkedIn page, the employee head count at HPE is between 11 and 50 individuals), Hennessey did partner with big names like Shell and Pennzoil to develop the Venom F5. In reality, we think the firm is a little closer to a Texas-style version of the sub-100 employee Koenigsegg Automotive.

“Some will undoubtedly question whether the Venom F5 even has the right to lay claim to the title of fastest production car on the road. Putting that to one side, this is one of the most exciting cars we’ve seen in quite some time.”

And another thing – when delving into the performance world’s pecking order, technicalities are bound to appear, and some will undoubtedly question whether this limited-series boutique hypercar even has the right to lay claim to the title of fastest production car on the road.

Putting all that to one side, there’s a whole to like about the Venom F5. It looks gorgeous, with all the wild flair and aggression we’d expect from a top competitor in this segment. It’s simple, with a straightforward (and lightweight) approach to making speed. Oh, and the speed – 300 mph is a helluva statement to make, and by all accounts, it’s looking like Hennessey is gonna be the first to say it.

All told, this is one of the most exciting cars we’ve seen in quite some time.

History And Background

Like so many others like it, the Hennessey Performance story has its roots in grassroots enthusiasm. Inspired by astronauts and fighter pilots, John Hennessey decided to max out on the ground, racing a Mitsubishi 3000 GT at Pikes Peak in the ‘90s. Around this time, he founded the tuner shop that bears his name as a means to fuel his speed habit.

Over the years, Hennessey Performance Engineering created some truly outrageous automobiles. In the process, the shop built a reputation for churning out modified muscle cars with incredible, over-the-top power numbers, proving their worth by participating in numerous magazine performance shootouts.


2019 Hennessey Venom F5 - image 742056
“Over the years, Hennessey Performance Engineering built a reputation for churning out over-the-top power numbers. But where do you go from a four-figure Viper?”

But once you make a four-figure Dodge Viper, where do you go next?

The next step was floated almost as a joke – what about stuffing one of those 1,000-horsepower monster motors into something extremely lightweight, like a Lotus? Thus, the Venom GT was born.

Hennessey built 13 of ‘em, challenging the world with a top speed run of 270 mph back in 2014. Although the Guinness Book of World Records did not recognize it as qualifying for the title of world’s fastest production car (the run was only in one direction and a total of 30 units were required for production status), the gauntlet had effectively been thrown.

The F5 is the follow-up to the older Venom GT. The question is – where will it land in the current crop of hypercars?

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Drops Huge Assist For Dodge Challenger Demon Owners

The Dodge Challenger Demon is quick. Apparently, it’s so quick that the National Hot Rod Association actually banned it because it’s capable of hitting the quarter mile in just 9.65 seconds, well below the 9.99-second threshold that the association allows without serious safety modifications. It’s a disappointing handcuff for Challenger Demon owners, but fortunately, John Hennessey has saved the day by telling Fiat Chrysler that Hennessey’s home track, Lonestar Motorsports Park, would accommodate the Challenger Demon without any restrictions to the car.

Hennessey made his offer clear to FCA’s head of passenger cars, Tim Kuniskis, in a letter addressing the issue with the NHRA. In the letter, Hennessey said that the Lonestar track would allow owners of the Challenger Demon to “run their vehicles down the quarter-mile drag strip without a roll cage and/or parachute. All Hennessey requires is that owners attend a one-day drag racing school to become familiar with car itself and the layout of the track. The noted tuner and car manufacturer’s offer is a lot more lenient than the NHRA, which requires owners of the 700-horsepower muscle car to equip their cars with safety equipment on top of getting an actual competition license before they can bring their Demons to any one of its quarter-mile drag strips.

PostHeaderIcon The Hennessey Venom F5 Wants To Destroy The Bugatti Chiron

When a car company decides to name its hypercar after the most powerful class of tornado in the world, there’s a certain level of expectation that needs to be met. Fortunately, that company is Hennessey and it’s got big plans for its new creation, the Venom F5. We’ve all heard a lot about the Venom F5 and the company’s plan for the car to become the fastest and most powerful production car in the world. But now, John Hennessey and his boys are making it clear for all the world to hear: the Venom F5 is coming to eat the Bugatti Chiron.

Challenging the Chiron is a tall order in it of itself, but if there’s one company that’s proven to be up to the task of taking down the mighty Bugatti, it’s Hennessey. That sentiment doesn’t come with a tinge of hyperbole either because Hennessey has already done it in the past when the Venom F5’s predecessor, the Venom GT, broke the Veyron Super Sport’s production car top speed record when it clocked a top speed of 270.3 mph. Issues with its “production status” prevented the Venom GT from claiming the Veyron Super Sport’s record, but regardless of what the record books say, the supercar did break 270 mph. Now, Hennessey wants the Venom F5 to make the Chiron look like a bow-legged tortoise by comparison with a goal of approaching a top speed of around 300 mph. Say what you will about Hennessey’s ambitions, but it’s hard to dismiss it because the automaker has already proven so many people wrong with the Venom GT. Now that it’s the F5’s turn, look out, Bugatti.

PostHeaderIcon When An 840-Horsepower Dodge Challenger Demon Is A Letdown, Hennessey Is Here To The Rescue

The massive hype and anticipation surrounding the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon reached a crescendo when the muscle car was officially unveiled at the 2017 New York Auto Show. For all intents and purposes, the Challenger SRT Demon lived up to the hype, that is if you thought its 840-horsepower met expectations. But some people, myself included, actually thought Dodge would’ve swung for the fences with a car that packed 1,000 horsepower. In that regard, the Demon was a bit of a letdown, that is until we heard news that American tuner extraordinaire Hennessey is making things right with a package for the muscle car that will turn the beast into the demonic 1,500-horsepower monster we thought it would be.

See, news of Hennessey’s intentions for the Demon shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who know what the tuner is capable of. This is, after all, the same company that makes a routine of developing massive aftermarket kits for America’s biggest and baddest muscle cars. It’s got kits for different iterations of the Dodge Charger, Ford Mustang, and Chevrolet Camaro, all of which peak at four-digit power outputs. It even has programs for models like the Chevrolet Corvette and the Ford F-150, and lest we forget, this is the same company that gave the world the Hennessey Venom GT, considered as the fastest production car in the world as long as you’re not talking to Bugatti.

So what sinister intentions does Hennessey have in store for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon? A quick peek at the company’s website reveals a number of tuning programs for the muscle car that include power increases ranging from 1,000 horsepower to 1,500 horsepower. Other upgrades in store from the clinically insane tuner include new supercharger systems, new headers, parachutes(!), and an NHRA-legal roll cage for good measure.

Should Hennessey accomplish its intended goal for the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon, it’s going to go a long way in firmly establishing the muscle car as the standard-bearer of its segment. Not that it is already, but c’mon, 1,500 horsepower is 1,500 horsepower.

PostHeaderIcon Look Out Demons, The Exorcist is Coming!

Talk about the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is dominating the interwebz these days thanks to Dodge’s long roll-out and weekly teasers. The ultra-high performance drag car is set to break records for a production car thanks to incredible engineering and pacifist corporate bean-counters. But the Demon may have met its match. The Texas performance house, Hennessey, just debuted a highly tuned 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 with 1,000 horsepower, drag slicks, and the most appropriate name ever crafted for a car. Meet The Exorcist!

That’s right, The Exorcist. Hennessey CEO and president John Hennessey says it will “leave the competition’s head spinning.” Clearly referencing pop culture, John is keenly aware what his Camaro is going up against. The Dodge Demon is rumored to have between 750 and 800 horsepower matched with 315-series, DOT-approved drag radial tires, an intercooler chilled by A/C refrigerant, Drag Mode, and several other never-before-seen performance parts on a production car.

Of course, the Hennessey Exorcist can’t claim its stock straight from General Motors. Quite the opposite, in fact, thanks to Hennessey’s installation of a larger supercharger and intercooler system, a more serious camshaft, long-tube headers, a high-flow air induction system, and a custom engine management calibration for the ECU.

Hennessey is claiming 1,000 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 966 pound-feet of torque at 4,400 from the Camaro ZL1’s 6.2-liter LT4 V-8. Testing by Hennessey shows the car hitting 60 mph in “under three seconds,” while the quarter-mile happens in “less than 10 seconds.” Official times have not been announced.

And while The Exorcist is not a factory option, Camaro customers can order the Hennessey upgrade through their local Chevy dealership. The parts and service come with a two-year/24,000-mile warranty. Customers can choose either the six-speed manual or 10-speed automatic version.

As for pricing, you’ll have to keep reading. Hennessey is offering several options, and we explain it all below.

PostHeaderIcon Steven Tyler's Hennessey Venom GT Spyder Fetches A Load In Auction

Steven Tyler has finally found a buyer for his Hennessey Venom GT Spyder. The front man of Aerosmith, who bought the first production Venom GT Spyder back in 2012, is now parting with his history-making supercar after the Venom GT Spyder fetched a cool $800,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scotsdale, Arizona over the weekend.

In addition to taking ownership of the 1,200-horsepower supercar, the winning bidder also gets a guitar signed by Tyler and his Aerosmith bandmates to go with a week’s vacation at the rock icon’s beach house in Maui. Not a bad deal, all things considered.

The guitar and the vacation are nice dressings, but the real highlight here is the Venom GT Spyder, which Tyler paid $1.1 million for back in 2012. It’s one of only five models that Hennessey built for the 2013 model year and it’s the very first convertible version of the American company’s supercar-slaying Venom GT supercar. Beyond the fact that it can spit out 1,200 horsepower and 1,155 pound-feet of torque, the Venom GT Spyder is capable of hitting 0 to 60 mph in just 2.7 before peaking at an insane top speed of 270 mph. Record or not, that’s speed that’s going to make the new owner’s teeth melt.

All things considered, the $800,000 winning bid is going to a worthy cause as all proceeds from the auction of the Venom GT Spyder is going to Tyler’s own charity, Janie’s Fund, which helps support abused and neglected women. The final amount may not have approached the $1.1 million that Tyler was looking to get from the sale, but the amount is still significant enough to help out the beneficiaries of the auction.

PostHeaderIcon Dodge Viper Venom 800 by Hennessey

Hennessey is one of those tuners that don’t need any introduction. But I’m going to give one anyway, especially since the company is responsible for the mind-blowing Venom GT, considered as arguable the fastest production car in the world. The American tuner doesn’t have anything remotely similar to the Venom GT here, but it does have a new tuning program for the Dodge Viper that borrows the Venom name. It’s officially called the Venom 800 and it packs 808 horsepower and 790 pound-feet of torque.

Those numbers may look eye-popping, but anybody who knows anything about Hennessey is aware that these are the kind of numbers the tuner is capable of producing. Heck, that Venom 800 program, as impressive as it looks, isn’t even the most powerful engine upgrade Hennessey has on offer for the Viper. It also has a bigger modification that squeezes out in excess of 1,000 horsepower out of the Viper’s 6.2-liter V-8 engine.

This is the kind of work that Hennessey is capable of. It’s not going to do wonders in the way of cosmetic and aerodynamic upgrades, but when it comes to working on those V-8 engines, there aren’t that many American tuners that can come close to achieving what the Texas-based outfit is routinely capable of doing.

PostHeaderIcon Ford Mustang GT 25th Anniversary HPE800 Edition By Hennessey

Hennessey is known for a lot of things in the auto industry, one of which is its ability to develop insane tuning programs for American performance cars. The Ford Mustang GT counts itself in this group and, while Hennessey has created past programs for the Ford muscle car in the past, this one carries a unique flavor because it’s been dubbed the 25th Anniversary Edition HPE800 Mustang GT to celebrate the company’s 25 years of existence. It’s a fitting name since this limited edition Mustang carries a lot of the characteristics of the full Hennessey tuning experience, highlighted by an increase in output to 804 horsepower and 648 pound-feet of torque.

By any tuning metric, that output is astounding, and more so for a car whose engine “only” tops out at 435 ponies and 400 pound-feet of torque. But that’s Hennessey for you. The American tuner doesn’t work on programs that offer modest gains; it swings for the fences. The 25th Anniversary Edition HPE800 Mustang is proof of that.

In addition to the engine tune, the limited edition program also comes with a useful set of aerodynamic components, a flashy set of wheels, and a modest interior upgrade that ironically comes with a few not-so-modest reminders of the car’s exclusivity.

The only downside to this program is that it’s limited to just 25 units and, as of now, there’s no telling how many of them are still available. Better be quick about it if you’re interested. Give Hennessey a ring or you might be left out on acquiring this alluring piece of tuning brilliance for the now 25-year old tuning wizard.

PostHeaderIcon Steven Tyler's Hennessey Venom GT Spyder To Go Up For Auction

Four years after purchasing the first Hennessey Venom GT Spyder, Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler is finally ready to let go of his baby after announcing his plan to auction off the Venom GT Spyder. Bids are currently being accepted with the minimum bid price set at $1.1 million, the amount Tyler spent to purchase the car back in 2012.

While there’s no indication that the car will be sold, it does have a couple of things going for it. One is that it was legitimately owned by Tyler himself, who admitted to FoxNews that he once took it up to 140 mph, a speed that’s the equivalent of a yawn for the Venom GT Spyder. Second and more importantly is the fact that the Venom GT Spyder is well and truly regarded as the fastest American-made supercar in the world. The Lotus Exige-based supercar is powered by a Chevrolet-sourced 7.0-liter V-8 engine that spits out an incredible 1,200 horsepower and 1,155 pound-feet of torque. Those numbers alone allow the Venom GT Spyder to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds to go with a top speed of 275 mph.

It’s unclear how many miles Tyler tacked on the Venom GT Spyder and the car’s overall condition could determine whether it gets sold or not. Neither Tyler nor his representatives released details on that regard so it might be best to contact the singer’s charity, Janie’s Fund, to get the actual numbers. Speaking of Janie’s Fund, the charity that helps support abused and neglected girls will be the sole recipient of the Venom GT Spyder’s sale.

Anybody who’s interested in the car and would like to know more about it are free to contact richard.shaw@janiesfund.org to get the full details. Bids on the car will also be accepted through the same e-mail address.

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Puts Lonestar Motorsports Drag Strip Up For Sale

Private drag strips don’t go up on sale too often, so when one hits the market, it’s a good thing to let people know about it. In case anybody’s interested, Hennessey Performance is selling its ownership of the Lonestar Motorsports park for a tidy sum of $2.7 million. The private drag strip is located right next to the company’s performance development facility in Sealy, Texas.

The performance center itself isn’t for sale as the company is reportedly planning to expand its vehicle production from the 400 units it builds annually to somewhere in the 1,000 range. The increase in production volume is tied into the potential sale of the drag strip.

As far as the strip itself is concerned, the entire facility is 55 acres in size and is highlighted by an IHRA-sanctioned quarter-mile drag strip. It has spectator grand stands with seating capacity for up to 800 people. It also has enclosed and air-conditioned concessions stands, staging lanes, a control tower, and timing equipment, among other things. Prospective buyers also have the option of buying another 70 acres, which could be used in expanding and turning the drag strip into an actual road racing course. Not surprisingly, the extra land comes with an additional cost.

Right now, Hennessey is still using the drag strip to test out its vehicles and even with a sale, stipulations are going to be put in place to ensure that the American automaker can still use the facility for testing even after it has been sold. Those who might have an eye towards actually buying the quarter-mile drag strip should be comforted to know that the strip is fully operational and has a calendar of events lineup every month.

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Mercedes AMG GT Hits the Dyno

Hennessey Mercedes AMG GT-dyno

Texan tuner Hennessey Performance has a big love for German sports cars, especially products of AMG. The latest car of the Affalterbach-based company they have modified and equipped with their HPE600 kit is the Hennessey Mercedes AMG GT. Here the car is shown during dyno tests.

Hennessey Mercedes AMG GT HPE600 sounds like a freakin’ jet on the dyno, flaunting its 600 horsepower output. But this is only stage one of what HPE is capable of extracting from the 4.0 liter bi-turbo V8. More powerful packages are yet to come.

The HPE600 package for Hennessey Mercedes AMG GT result in a gain of 80 horsepower over the standard 510. But that’s real-wheel horsepower. It’s the power that’s put to the ground. The nominal power output of this car at the crank is way above 600 hp.

PostHeaderIcon Chevrolet Camaro SS By Hennessey

Just yesterday, I was driving across the bridge by GM’s Lansing assembly plant. As I looked towards the massive parking lot, I saw hundreds of brand new, 2016 Chevy Camaro’s sitting there, just waiting to be loaded up and shipped off to showrooms across the country. It was at that point that I realized that – outside of Chevy-built concepts like the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS Black Accent concept, Red Accent Concept, and the Performance Concept – we haven’t seen much in terms of modified 2016 Camaros.

I started looking at different tuning firms, and it was no surprise that Hennessey already offers upgrade packages for the 2016 Chevy Camaro SS. Currently there are two packages on the table to choose from, and like most Hennessey upgrades, they offer more in terms of power than they do physical appearance. Of course, you can’t fault Hennessey for that – the firm is about power, plus the Camaro SS is already quite stylish as it is.

The HPE600 upgrade is the lesser of the two upgrades, offering an extra 145 horsepower over the 455 horsepower output by the Camaro SS in stock form. The HPE650 upgrade offers even more, bringing that LT1 up by 195 horsepower. So, with that said, let’s take a deeper look at the Camaro SS by Hennessey.

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V HPE1000 Detailed

Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V HPE1000-1

Following the first announcement a few months ago, the HPE1000 package for the 2016 2016 Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V is now ready and the Texan tuner has revealed its detailed specs. As the name clearly suggests, this insane Caddy packs 1,000 brake horsepower.

And that is not the end of it. If the previous Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V is anything to go by, the tuner will eventually launch a 1,200 hp version of the 2016 model. Now that’s something to look forward to.

But for now the thousand-horsepower version will do. We have’t seen the car in the flesh yet, but judging by the renderings they have released, the new Hennessey Cadillac CTS-V looks every bit like it has a 1,000 horsepower. The list of modifications you get with the HPE 1000 package include a 2.9 liter supercharger, completely new pistons, rods, and camshafts as well as cylinder heads, upgraded injection and ignition systems, custom intercooler and exhaust headers (part of a stainless steel system), engine calibration and…

The car also comes with a super sexy body kit as mentioned, complemented with a set of Hennessey H10 Monoblock wheels.

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Considering 1,000-HP All-Electric Venom GT

American tuning extraordinaire Hennessey has the habit of pushing the boundaries of supercar performance. The 1,451-horsepower Hennessey Venom GT is living proof of that. Soon enough, the Venom F5 will join the fray, which according to John Hennessey, will be capable of a top speed of 290 mph. But, neither the Venom GT nor the Venom F5 is the reason why the Texas-based company is making the headlines. Turns out, Hennessey is also working on another car, or to be more specific, a 1,000-horsepower all-electric supercar.

Hennessy bared those plans in a conversation with TopGear.com at the SEMA Auto Show. According to John H., the company has looked into the possibility of building such a car. The only concern at this point is how the company would be able to fit electric technology into a car while retaining the car’s lightweight characteristics. Hennessey himself made that point, saying that he’s only waiting for “batteries to become lighter and have more capacity” before his company dives straight into building the car.

One thing you can count on Hennessey to steer clear from are hybrids. That point was made pretty clear when he unequivocally voiced his lack of interest in building a hybrid supercar, despite the fact that Ferrari, Porsche, and McLaren have all been hugely successful with the release of their own hybrid supercars. Hennessey admitted that what those companies did proved that it was possible to fit hybrid tech into a supercar. But, just because they did it, doesn’t mean he’s going to. In his own words, he’s sticking to a “Venom with an engine or as a straight electric.”

There’s still no specific timetable on when we can expect to see this all-electric supercar. But, if there’s one thing we’ve come to know about John Hennessey, he doesn’t speak out of turn for the sake of making headlines. When he says something, he means it.

PostHeaderIcon Hennessey Mustang Convertible Unveiled at SEMA

Hennessey Mustang Convertible-0

Along with the new Venom GT, Texan tuner Hennessey Performance unveiled at this year’s SEMA show a new Mustang equipped with their HPE750 Supercharged package. The 2016 Hennessey Mustang Convertible has a certified top speed of 207.9 mph, as seen on Jay Leno’s Garage TV show on CNBC.

Mind you, the record breaking car was a coupe, it was driven by a professional driver, and the venue they did it was the favorable surroundings of a closed highway. It was still an impressive achievement. And the lack of roof on this one should not have that big an affect on the overall performance of the vehicle.

As for the ingredients of the package and the reason it is so fast, Hennessey Mustang Convertible HPE750 comes with a supercharger system producing 9 psi boost, increasing the total output of the 5.0 liter GT V8 engine to massive 774 horsepower. The zero to 60 time in this car is a supercar-busting 3.2 seconds.

Other highlights of Hennessey Mustang Convertible include a bespoke aero kit including carbon fiber front splitter, side sills, and rear lip spoiler, complemented with a set of Hennessey H10 light weight wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The car also features a Brembo racing brake upgrade for proper stopping power.

While we’re at it, let’s also check out the 2016 VelociRaptor 650: 650 HP 5.0L V8 engine; 0-60 mph: 4.9 seconds; Supercharger system producing 7 psi boost; Fox suspension upgrade;  Heavy duty front and rear bumpers; 20 inch Hennessey wheel and tire upgrade;  Fender flares; Skid plates.
