The Hennessey F5 Roadster is based on F5 Coupe. The Roadster weighs 20 kgs more than the Coupe.

Because of its insane vehicles, Hennessey, based in Texas, has become a well-known American brand around the world. They designed the Venom F5 hypercar, and now Hennessey has revealed the roadster version. It is simply known as the ‘Hennessey F5 Roadster,’ and it was unveiled at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering in Monterey, California. The Roadster will be limited to 30 units, while the Coupe will be limited to 24 units. The only difference between the roadster and coupe mechanically is the removable roof.

Hennessey had to re-engineer the roof to make it a removable panel. The single-piece roof is made up of carbon fibre to keep the weight down. Because of this, the roof panel weighs just 8 kgs, Hennesey says that a single person should be able to remove and insert the roof alone. The roof is lined with Alcantara to keep the premium feel. The roof is fitted with four quick-release bolts and a pair of high-strength latches so that the panel can withstand the forces when the car is doing acceleration or top-speed runs. Moreover, the roof is also weatherproof so the buyer can fit it and use the F5 Roadster in rains.

Customers can choose between a bespoke Merino wool travel bag and a custom-made standalone sculptural pedestal designed by Hennessey’s in-house team. The pedestal is made of carbon fibre, which is an added bonus. Aside from the roof, Hennessey has provided a tempered glass window through which the engine can be seen. The glass is designed to withstand aerodynamic forces at 480 kmph and temperatures of more than 540 degrees Celsius.
