Following a preview from December 2014, Hennessey has commenced production of the 2015 VelociRaptor 600.

Based on the 2015 Ford F-150 FX4 4x4, the upgrade brings a 2.9-liter supercharger system bumping output of the V8 5.0-liter engine to 600 bhp (447 kW) at 6,600 rpm. It also gets the tuner's 17-inch wheels with 33-inch BF Goodrich tires while the body receives black fender flares. At an additional cost, the VelociRaptor can be equipped with optional off-road front and rear bumpers, HPE suspension upgrade, an LED light bar, winch, stainless steel cat-back exhaust and this yellow body wrap.

Performance figures have not been disclosed but Hennessey estimates the high-performance truck can run the 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) sprint in the high four-second area.

The 2015 VelociRaptor by Hennessey carries a starting price of $73,500 (including donor car) and all units benefit from a three-year / 36,000-mile limited warranty.
