The Hennessey team is developing an all new, twin turbo V8 engine that will deliver over 1600 bhp. The Hennessey engine will be mated to a 7-speed single clutch paddle shift transmission and delivering power down to the rear tires.
The engine sits in the middle of the hypercar and produced a whopping 1,300lb ft of torque, which send power to the rear 20-inch wheels.
It is married to a save-speed single-clutch paddle-shift gearbox, but a manual can also be specced.
Unlike the 270 miles per hour Lotus Elise-based Venom GT, the F5 is built on a completely bespoke chassis, and uses a brand new 7.4-liter aluminum V8 with two turbochargers attached.
