SEALY, Texas, Jan. 04, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer, and high-performance vehicle creator, delivered a milestone 10th Venom F5 to its owner over the holidays. The striking metallic blue F5 Coupe, with brilliant white stripes, was delivered at Hennessey Special Vehicles in Sealy, where a specialized team in a dedicated building manufactures the hypercar.

Signed off for full production in March 2022 by company Founder and CEO John Hennessey, plus Chief Engineer John Heinricy, the Hennessey Special Vehicles team has now assembled more than a dozen F5 Coupes and Roadsters. As of last week, 10 production units had been hand-delivered to customers – a collective output of more than 18,000 bhp!


John Hennessey, company Founder and CEO: “Manufacturing a hypercar requires a team effort on a global scale, and I could not be prouder of our accomplishments. Each bespoke commission is visually stunning, an imaginative collection of colors and materials befitting a vehicle of this caliber. Our clientele is thrilled by the Venom F5 and simply astonished by its performance.”

The rate of manufacturing is increasing monthly, despite continuing supply chain challenges, and Hennessey expects to deliver more than 20 Venom F5 hypercars in 2023. The company, which has grown to more than 90 full-time team members when Hennessey Performance and Tuner School is included, plans to expand its manufacturing capacity further this year.

While all 24 Venom F5 Coupe commissions sold out in 2021, Hennessey is still offering the Venom F5 Roadster – an open-roof variant of the 300+ mph hypercar. Build slots may be reserved by calling the Hennessey Special Vehicles sales team at +1 979.885.1300 or visiting
