Hennessey Ford F-150 VelociRaptor is Ready to Strike
Rumor has it that a new Ford Raptor is making its way to next month's Detroit Auto Show, though, nothing's been set in stone. That hasn’t stopped John Hennessey from developing a special new Ford Raptor of his own. Based on the 2015 F-150, the Hennessey Performance VelociRaptor 600 Supercharged is a complete animal. Hennessey started the project by supercharging the 5.0-liter V8 engine. Additionally, the shop added a better flowing intake and exhaust system, and a full ECU tune. That gives this monster truck a full 600 horsepower. RELATED: See Photos of the 2015 Ford F-150
For the exterior, they added 33-inch BFGoodrich tires on a set of Hennessey bead-lock rims, a custom off-road suspension, and upgrades to both the front and rear bumpers. You can also add an LED light bar, front winch, and some Brembo brakes to fill out the whole package.
However, all of this off-road hoonery will cost you $73,500 - not exactly cheap. That includes the donor 2015 F-150. But Hennessey sees this new VelociRaptor as something special. “Having Ford’s world-class new truck design, with a weight savings of nearly 700 pounds, our VelociRaptor 600 Supercharged will have an even greater level of performance and driving excitement!”
The company has slated only 500 trucks to be built for the 2015 model year. If you have a need for speed, and to be able to hit the trails, a crazy Texan has just the truck for you.
