If Ford’s 2024 F-150 Raptor R’s 720 horsepower wasn’t enough for you, Hennessey just unveiled its 1,000-plus-horsepower version: the VelociRaptor 1000.

The Texas-based Hennessey calls it “the new king of trucks,” able to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.1 seconds.

The modified pickup truck, with a 3.8-liter Whipple Supercharger added to Ford’s V8, boosts the 2024 Raptor R by 300 horsepower – for a total of 1,043 bhp (brake horsepower), Hennessey says.

Check out the truck’s combined low growl and high-pitched whine in the video at the end of this story.

Other features on the souped-up ride include high-flow air induction, front and rear VelociRaptor bumpers, Hennessey wheels, 3-inch lift and power fold-out steps.

The company says the pickup can cover a quarter-mile in 11.4 seconds at 122 mph.

“The VelociRaptor 1000 is now the apex predator of pickup trucks,” he declares. â€śâ€¦ Our VelociRaptor 1000 upgrade with new wheels, tires and big Brembo brakes takes this amazing, all-purpose vehicle and makes it the 911 Turbo S of trucks.”

Production is underway on the VelociRaptor 1000, with plans to produce 500.

Other features on the truck include:

  • Billet fuel rails.
  • Heavy-duty supercharger belt.
  • Upgraded fuel lines.
  • An air/oil separator system.
  • Front and rear suspension leveling kit.
  • Hennessey engine management calibration.
  • 20-inch Hennessey wheels and 37-inch off-road tires.
  • VelociRaptor 1000 badging.
  • 3-year/36,000-mile Hennessey warranty.

Hennessey began modifying Ford F-150 Raptors in 2009 and says it has produced thousands of VelociRaptors.

“In taking the Raptor R to new heights of performance, the Hennessey team employed all its 33 years of experience in 'making fast cars faster,’” the company says. “The full-size truck underwent a rigorous program of R&D before a series of dyno and road tests.”
