How do you make Ford’s beastly 2017 Raptor even more beastly? How about throwing a couple more wheels on the rear end?
That’s just what Hennessey has done with the head-turning 2017 VelociRaptor 6×6. Based on the 2017 F-150 Raptor, the VelociRaptor 6×6 boosts Ford’s already impressive 450 horsepower to 600-plus thanks to a twin turbo upgrade and re-tuned factory computer.
“Our VelociRaptor 6×6 is pure aggression on wheels—all six of them,” said company founder John Hennessey. “The new 2017 Raptor is going to be one of the best all-around trucks ever built. We are excited to help take it to the next level both in terms of performance and exclusivity.”
The VelociRaptor 6×6 concept includes the base 2017 Raptor 4-door truck, 6X6 locking rear axles, upgraded Fox suspension, upgraded 20-inch wheels and off-road tires, special front and rear bumpers, rollbar and LED lights.
The 600-plus horsepower twin turbo upgrade is available for the 6×6 and for the factory version 2017 F-150 Raptor 4×4. The turbo upgrade includes twin turbochargers, stainless steel exhaust modifications, upgraded front mounted air to air intercooler and plumbing and re-tuned factory computer.
Other optional upgrades for either truck include Brembo front & rear brake upgrade, larger wheels and tires, LED lighting upgrades, Bespoke Interior make-over, electronic upgrades and armoring systems.
The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 can be ordered directly from Hennessey Performance or through select Hennessey / Ford dealers.
Brace yourself. The VelociRaptor 6×6 starts at $295,000, while the twin turbo upgrade can be had for $22,500.
