Hennessey Special Vehicles, the innovative Texas-based hypercar manufacturer, is driving the automotive industry into the future with the global debut of the new Venom F5 Revolution Roadster hypercar. Completely crafted in lightweight exposed carbon fiber, the Revolution Roadster marks a milestone, building upon last year’s premiere of the roofless Venom F5 Roadster and this year’s launch of the track-ready Venom F5 Revolution Coupe. This triumphant combination incorporates the best features of both models, bringing together visceral open-air motoring with a razor-sharp racing circuit focus. This hypercar’s breathtaking appearance promises to re-define luxury and performance in the hypercar space.
The Venom F5 Revolution Roadster is more than just a hand-crafted machine; it represents a relentless pursuit of perfection on both road and track. Completely re-engineered from its Coupe sibling, this vehicle showcases improved agility, uncompromised handling, and superior downforce. An array of track-focused improvements sets it apart, including aerodynamic enhancements like significantly larger front and rear splitters, dive planes on the front fascia, and a distinctive rear wing. The Roadster also features new wheels, retuned suspension, and state-of-the-art digital track telemetry. Not to be overlooked, a high-mounted central air scoop, inherited from the Revolution Coupe, plays a crucial role in performance, delivering fresh, cool air to the F5’s engine bay.
Further distinguishing itself from the Coupe model, the F5 Revolution Roadster introduces a re-engineered roof with a removable panel crafted from rigid carbon fiber composites. This single-piece roof, weighing only 18 lbs, is fully insulated against the elements and lined with soft Alcantara upholstery. With four quick-release bolts and high-strength latches, it can withstand the hypercar’s mind-bending acceleration and aerodynamic forces at extreme speeds, making removal and installation easy for one person. This unique feature adds an extra layer of versatility to this already outstanding vehicle.
The global debut of the Venom F5 Revolution Roadster at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering, celebrates the arrival of five limited-edition ‘Bare Carbon’ models. Each of these hypercars highlights a methodically arranged, hand-placed carbon-fiber weave in a herringbone pattern that complements the F5’s graceful lines. A deeply polished clearcoat safeguards the exposed composite, enhancing its stunning visual appeal. This new limited-production variant, priced at $3 million and restricted to just 12 units worldwide, marries extreme open-air motoring with a racing circuit focus. With Hennessey’s 1,817 bhp twin-turbocharged ‘Fury’ V8 and production already sold out, the Venom F5 Revolution Roadster promises to be a game-changer, set to take the stage on August 18, 2023.
