Hennessey announced back in 2018 that the Venom F5 will be capable to hit a top speed of 300 mph, but it never announced any specifications numbers for the supercar. However, today the tuner finally announced that the F5 will be powered by a V-8 engine that will deliver a total of 1817 horsepower and 1193 lb-ft of torque.

“We exceeded our target horsepower number. Actually, we blew our target number out of the water by delivering over 1,800 horsepower,” said company founder and CEO, John Hennessey. “The F5 engine has a very broad power band with over 1,000 lb-ft of torque available from 2,000 to 8,000 rpm. Give it the full throttle and it’s the most furious engine that we have ever built. Thus, we gave our F5 engine a special name: “Fury.”

In order to obtain this incredible amount of power, Hennessey announced that the V-8 has been updated with lightweight components, like the crankshaft, pistons, connective rods, and the engine block itself. The engine also incorporates a unique Venom F5 intake manifold design which places the intercooler between the plenum and cylinder heads. This unique design allows the inlet air temperatures coming out of the turbos to be greatly reduced before the charge air goes into the combustion chamber, thus resulting in greater air density and greater overall power efficiency.
