Hennessey Unveils Venom F5 Engine Details At The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering

Shell and Pennzoil to Power and Protect Hennessey Special Vehicles Powerhouse

 

Pebble BeachShell and Pennzoil teamed up with Hennessey Special Vehicles to bring the Hennessey Venom F5 to The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, to unveil much sought-after engine details since its first industry introduction last fall.

“We think the engine details shared at The Quail are of major interest to all those who have been following the progress of the Venom F5,” said John Hennessey. “With a custom-built Hennessey 7.6 Liter Twin Turbo V8 engine capable of achieving more than 1600 bhp at 7,200 rpm (24 psi boost pressure) and Shell and Pennzoil powering and protecting this powerhouse, we’re feeling confident in our quest to set new records in 2019.”

In addition to the ample horsepower available to the Venom F5, the hypercar’s engine is a billet aluminum machined engine block with steel cylinder sleeves that will continue to push the envelope with 1,300 lb-ft torque @ 4,400 rpm, a 9.3:1 compression ratio, and features precision ball bearing twin turbos with billet compressor wheels, stainless steel turbo headers, and a dry sump oiling system.

For nearly five years, Shell and Pennzoil have been working with Hennessey founder and CEO, John Hennessey, to power and protect his coveted asphalt-eating power machines. More than two years ago, they joined up to co-engineer a vehicle that is on pace to re-write the industry record books: the Venom F5. This extreme hypercar has been designed and built with the goal of being the fastest car on earth.

“Our relationship with John and the Hennessey Special Vehicles team is mutually rewarding. Our products are tested to their performance limits in the new engine designed especially for Venom F5 and will help the Hennessey team to break more records. This extreme performance testbed allows Shell to progress our own innovations as we support this hypercar in its move to next level status,’’ said Carlos Maurer, president, Shell Lubricants Americas.

The Venom F5’s bespoke design and chassis will also help achieve even greater performance through improved aerodynamics and technology. Hennessey will rely on Pennzoil Platinum 10W-60 Full Synthetic motor oil and Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline to protect and power the Venom F5 across any finish line.

Out of the 24 vehicles that will be built, there have already been 15 confirmed orders.

The Hennessey name has long been associated with making cars — and trucks — go faster. Throughout its history, the American tuner has upped the performance on an array of vehicles ranging from sports cars to SUVs. A few years ago, Hennessey decided to build a new vehicle from the ground up — the result was the Venom GT. Powered by a 1244-horsepower 7.0-liter V8 engine, the Venom GT churns out stunning performance figures including a top speed slightly over 270 mph. Although this seems like a performance number most tuners could not top, in Geneva Hennessey showed a new vehicle designed to do just that. Continue reading MSN’s article on their website.
