Debut of Hennessey Venom F5 Announced for 2018 Geneva International Motor Show

The Hennessey Venom F5, a very limited edition hypercar, will make its worldwide debut at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show on Tuesday, March 6, and remain on display through Sunday, March 18.

Scheduled for a production run of only 24 vehicles, the Hennessey Venom F5 was built with the goal of breaking the 300-miles-per-hour threshold. 

John Hennessey, company Founder and CEO, is known for making fast cars faster and consistently reconstructs vehicles from automotive enthusiasts and turns them into coveted raw power machines. The Venom F5 possesses the same raw power (and then some), but this vehicle is unique given that it was built from the ground up. Incorporating inimitable design features and utilizing technologically advanced products such as Pennzoil Synthetics, this vehicle is not only intended to be visually appealing, but also fulfill the need for speed that certain motorists desire.

"We partnered with Shell and Pennzoil to defy all odds and to create a vehicle that will be the fastest. Period," said John Hennessey. "The Venom F5 combines a very low coefficient of drag of 0.33 and a curb weight of less than 3,000 lbs (1,360 kg). Pennzoil Synthetics will be pulsing through the twin turbo V8 engine that will deliver over 1,600 bhp. It's no question of if we will break 300 mph but a question of when."

Hennessey, Shell and Pennzoil built a relationship starting in 2014 and have since come together to build this vehicle that is on pace to re-write the record books in the industry. This car is set to turn heads with an all-new design and chassis that will also help achieve even greater performance through improved aerodynamics and technology. Hennessey will further rely on Shell V-Power® NiTRO+ Premium Gasoline to push the Venom F5 across the finish line.

"Our relationship with John and the Hennessey Special Vehicles team is mutually rewarding," said Wolfgang Warnecke, Chief Scientist of Mobility for Shell. "Our products will be tested to their performance limits in this vehicle, enabling the Hennessey team as they look to break more records. This also allows Shell to continue to progress our own innovations while supporting this hypercar move to next level status.''

The Venom F5, which will have an exclusive production run that is limited to just 24 vehicles, will be on display (Stand: 1220) at the Geneva International Motor Show for all enthusiasts to see. Out of the 24 vehicles that will be built, there have already been 10 confirmed orders. The Geneva International Motor Show will spotlight the Venom F5 and allude to what is to come soon from Hennessey Special Vehicles, Pennzoil and Shell.
