We have video and photos of the Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 which uses over 500 hp and 520 lb-ft to reach 60mph in 5.6 seconds. Details inside.
Texas-based tuners Hennessey Performance Engineering have a new package for the Ford F150 SVT Raptor. The Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 managed to finish the quarter-mile in 14.09 seconds at 97 mph.
The testing took place near HPE headquarters in Sealy at the Lonestar Motorsports Park.
Company engineers brought the 5.4-liter V8 engine up to 501 hp (374 kW) and 520 ft-lb (705 Nm) of torque by adjusting the ECU, installing a Whipple supercharger and a K&N intake. Tuning the fuel injectors and exhaust also helped the truck's performance. 0-60mph is now set at 5.6 seconds, down nearly three full seconds from the stock vehicle.
100 units of the Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 kits will be produced this year. The package retails for $10,950, with an additional cost of over $4k to have HPE install the kit.
Too bad they didn't modify the bland interior as well.
