Hennessey Venom F5 Engine Makes An Astounding 1817 Horsepowerzoom in

Thanks to their custom-tuned and custom-built engines, Hennessey Performance makes some seriously badass vehicles. Now, the Sealy, Texas tuner is showing off one of the most powerful V8 engines we’ve seen this side of a top fuel dragster.

The engine for the Venom F5 (nicknamed “Fury”) is based on the classic V8 architecture, but there’s nothing ordinary about it. It packs a variety of custom lightweight parts, including its crankshaft, pistons, connecting rods, and engine block. The twin-turbocharged, 6.6-liter engine makes 1817 horsepower at 8,000 rpm, and 1193 lb-ft. of torque at 5,500 rpm, redlining at 8,200 rpm. All of its components are built for extreme duty, which will be critical to pushing along the F5, which is expected to weigh under 3,000 pounds, even with this beast in place.
