Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution Roadster: sad news

August 9, 2023

Price tag Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution Roadster

With a $3 million price tag, the Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution Roadster is pretty pricey. Only 12 copies see the light of day. The sad news? All those copies are already sold out. So had you still wanted a copy, you are actually too late.

Best of both worlds

The Revolution Roadster follows the debut of the roofless Venom F5 Roadster presented in 2022. In early 2023, Hennessey Special Vehicles still presented the track-ready Venom F5 Revolution Coupe. The Venom F5 Revolution Roadster combines the best features of both models: being able to drive open and perform to the maximum on the track.

Smart roof construction

The roof of the F5 Revolution Roadster differs from the Coupe model and has been redesigned with a removable panel made of carbon fiber. The one-piece roof is fully insulated against the elements and covered with soft Alcantara upholstery. The weatherproof panel is secured with four quick-release bolts and a pair of powerful latches. Because there will be quite a bit of pressure on the roof when the pace picks up. The lightweight roof panel weighs only 8 kg, making removal and installation by one person easy.

Motor window

As with the F5 Roadster, the F5 Revolution Roadster has a standard tempered glass engine window to highlight the imposing power source. The glass, about four times stronger than ordinary annealed glass, is encapsulated in a removable carbon fiber hood with milled heat dissipation holes to match those in the rear bumper.

The boss speaking

John Hennessey, founder and CEO of the company, said the following: “The new Venom F5 Revolution Roadster combines our track-focused hypercar with a sunroof for an unparalleled driving experience. This first example, a custom made one for a special customer, introduces our visible carbon finish.”
