The Hennessey Venom F5® Roadster is a bespoke mid-engine hypercar engineered to exceed 300 mph while delivering unparalleled performance and the world’s most exhilarating open-air driving experience. It is Hennessey’s continuation following the premiere of last year’s Venom F5® Coupe, which sold out shortly after the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
Made in Texas, the Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster utilizes the same carbon fiber monocoque tub used for the Venom F5®, aluminum alloy subframes, and a carbon fiber skin. The Venom F5®’s carbon-fiber tub was designed and engineered with variants like the Roadster in mind, so there has been no loss of rigidity and stiffness in the tub.
Explore the unrivaled open-air thrills
The ultimate expression of a hypercar.
The Roadster version takes the Coupe’s speed, exhilaration, and awe, plus a sprinkling of respect-inducing fear, to a new, truly visceral level that brings owners closer to the Venom F5®’s extreme performance.
A visceral experience
The Roadster roof has been re-engineered with a removable panel crafted from rigid carbon fiber composites. The single-piece roof is fully insulated against the elements and lined with soft Alcantara upholstery. The weatherproof panel is secured with four quick-release bolts and a pair of high-strength latches to withstand the hypercar’s staggering acceleration capabilities and aerodynamic forces at extreme speed. The lightweight roof panel weighs a mere 18lbs (8kg), making removal and installation easy for one person.
New tempered glass engine window
This panel, in the middle of the rear engine cover, spotlights the massive ‘Fury’ V8 engine in all its glory. Its engineering was no simple task – developed and certified for use in jet aircraft. The sizable glass panel can withstand aerodynamic forces exceeding 300 mph and temperatures beyond 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit (540 degrees Celsius). The detail is extraordinary – the engine viewing window is encapsulated within a removable carbon fiber engine cover that features intricately-milled heat extraction holes that match those in the rear bumper.
Forged aluminum alloy
Forged from aluminum alloy and then milled to perfection, the lightweight wheels feature seven pairs of spokes, each resembling an elongated Hennessey ‘H’. Milled into the outer face of each wheel rim is the ‘Hennessey’ script, mirrored by the ‘Roadster’ script on the opposite side. Owners may opt to upgrade the Hyper Silver wheels to highly polished aluminum – this exclusive finish requires a painstaking process of hand polishing that takes weeks to complete. The wheels are secured with five titanium nuts, an alloy revered for its strength, heat tolerance, corrosion resistance, and extremely low mass.
