The Hennessey Venom F5 Roadster was revealed during Pebble Beach week as promised. In addition, it is nearly identical to the coupe on which it is based, albeit with a removable roof and a few subtle alterations here and there.
As Hennessey wants that to be the case, regardless of whether the roof is on the car or not, it comes with a special carbon fiber display stand for when the roof is removed, since it's the centerpiece of the car in the first place.
A soft travel bag is also included with the item, just in case you wish to take it with you wherever you go. There is a carbon fiber insulated top as well as an Alcantara lining on the inside of the top. In terms of weight, it weighs just 18 pounds.
The exterior was also modified by Hennessey. One of the most notable changes is the new engine cover. In place of the simple vented carbon fiber panel, the Roadster gets a large piece of glass framed in aluminum and carbon fiber.
As for the aluminum panels and the carbon fiber surround, both have been vented, and holes in the carbon fiber surround are formed to match the holes in the rear heat extractor.
The Roadster also comes with unique wheels. The wheels are made from forged aluminum billet and have the Hennessey logo engraved into one spoke.
The F5 Roadster is mechanically identical to the coupe. A seven-speed automated single-clutch sequential transmission is paired with the same twin-turbo 6.6-liter V8 that makes 1,817 horsepower and 1,193 pound-feet of torque.
A 0-60 mph time wasn't given, but Hennessey still plans to reach 300 mph. The company expects it to exceed the Venom GT Roadster's top speed of 265 mph.
As of now, Hennessey will build the roadster in 30 different models, which is 6 more models than the coupe Hennessey is bringing to the table.
The price of each one will be $3 million and can be customized to meet the needs of the customer. As soon as the model is revealed, the company expects it to sell out quickly. Later this year, production will begin.
