Hennessy Performance

The 2017 Ford Raptor is already a high-performance, high-powered truck. But Texas-based Hennessey Performance has designs to take the vehicle to a whole other level. The tuning outfit is rolling out a 6×6 Raptor kit called the VelociRaptor… and it’s insane.

Here’s what the standard Ford Raptor looks like:

With a V-6 Ecoboost engine, off-road FOX racing shox and a fully-loaded interior, the truck is nothing to scoff at. Just the standard 2017 Raptor will cost you a minimum of $48K.

Now, check out the truck with Hennessey’s VelociRaptor kit:

Infinitely cooler! Of course, to look that much cooler, you’ll need to shell out about $295,000 — the starting price for the VelociRaptor. But if you want to drive around looking like you’re ready for a trip to Jurassic Park, the upgrade is well worth it.

So, what do you get with the massive upgrade? For starters, two extra, 20-inch wheels and locking rear axles. The kit also comes with special bumpers, a roll bar, and those monstrous LED lights. If you opt for the 600+ HO upgrade, it will include upgraded twin turbochargers, stainless steel exhaust modifications and upgraded front mounted air to air intercooler and plumbing.

“Our VelociRaptor 6X6 is pure aggression on wheels – all six of them.” Hennessy reports. “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.”
