Date:4 December 2020 Author: Kyro Mitchell

The Hennessey Performance Engineering (HPE) team introduced the world to its most powerful Ford truck to date, the Hennessey Venom 800 supercharged F-150 pickup truck.

The Venom 800 is a modified version of the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 Platinum Edition Super Crew 4-door truck, which features a 5.0L V8 engine, 10-speed automatic transmission and 4-wheel drive as standard. The Hennessey team transformed Ford into the Venom 800 by upgrading the engine with the addition of a 3.0L supercharger system that produces 8 psi of boost pressure.

They also made upgrades to the high-flow cold air induction system, fuel injectors, fuel pump system, and stainless steel exhaust system. These upgrades boosted the power from the stock 5.0L V8 engine (rated at 298 Kw) to an eye-watering 600 Kw @ 6,200 rpm.

The Venom 800 will be capable of running 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds. To help bring this beast to a stop, the vehicle features an upgraded BREMBO braking system with 6-piston callipers clamping down on massive 15.1-inch cross-drilled steel rotors.

“We’ve only used our VENOM trademark on a small number of very special vehicles in the 29-year history of our company,” said Founder and CEO, John Hennessey. “We feel that the new F-150 with our 805 bhp Supercharged upgrade is worthy of the VENOM name.

The Hennessey Venom 800 truck production will be limited to just 100 units for the 2021 model year and will retail for around R2,2 million.
