Hennessey unveils VelociRaptor 6X6
In Vegas Hennessey showed their bonkers 600 horsepower, 3-axle monster truck, based on the Ford Raptor. Don’t call Texas yet though, there is a catch.
Hennessey Performance (HPE) is willing to build you a VelociRaptor 6X6 if you are willing to part with $349,000! That’s quite a hefty sum for what is basically an F-150, so what does the Texas based tuner offer for all that money?
‘The VelociRaptor 6X6 is the ultimate off-road vehicle,’ according to founder and CEO John Hennessey. ‘We will be building just 50 VelociRaptor 6X6’s, which makes it not only one of the most aggressive and unique vehicles on the market but also one of the most exclusive.’
The price includes a 2018 Raptor with a SuperCrew cabin. In their workshop in Sealy, Hennessey adds locking rear axles (plural, obviously), a 600 horsepower twin turbo engine upgrade, upgraded suspension and beefier 20-inch wheels with Toyo off-road tires. On the outside the front and rear bumpers, roll bar and additional LED lights distinguish the VelociRaptor from the regular Raptor. In case you failed to spot the extra rear wheels…
Hennessey offers an optional set of Brembo brakes with 6 calipers and rotors for an additional $22,000.
