The new turbo V6 Ford F150 Raptor hasn’t even gone on sale in the US yet but tuner Hennessey Performance have waved its wand over it to tweak the EcoBoost engine to make more than 600 Horsepower and add an extra driven axle at the rear.
“Our VelociRaptor 6X6 is pure aggression on wheels – all six of them”, said 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 Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 can be ordered directly from Hennessey Performance or through select Hennessey / Ford dealers in the USA
The VelociRaptor 6X6 concept starts at US$295,000 and includes the base 2017 Raptor 4-door truck, 6X6 locking rear axles, upgraded Fox suspension, upgraded 20-inch wheels and off-road tyres, special front and rear bumpers, rollbar and LED lights. HPE will also be offering its VelociRaptor 600 twin turbo upgrade for the 6X6 and for owners seeking more power and performance.
The 600+ HP upgrade costs US$22,000 and includes upgraded twin turbochargers, stainless steel exhaust modifications, upgraded front mounted air to air intercooler and plumbing and re-tuned factory computer.
