Hennessey kicked off customer deliveries of the Venom F5 last November and is currently busy making the remaining 23 cars, all of which have long been sold out. In the meantime, it has put a stripped-down prototype on a chassis dyno for testing purposes. It’s a good opportunity to hear the “Fury” engine as it screams all the way up to over 8,300 rpm to contrast the many silent EVs introduced this week at CES 2022 in Las Vegas.
The naked Venom F5 boasts a mighty 6.6-liter V8 with a pair of turbochargers and an impressive 8,500 rpm redline. It certainly sounds glorious and we are still patiently waiting to see what it’s capable of during the hypercar’s long-promised top speed run to smash the 300-mph barrier. For now, we can only hear the engine while it produces its full 1,817 horsepower at 8,000 rpm and 1,193 pound-feet (1,617 Newton-meters) of torque from 5,000 rpm.
