How do you make the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor even more outrageous? Double the power.
Go big, and that’s what Hennessey will set you up with. Hennessey starts with the already-powerful 6.2-liter V-8, doubles the turbos, then adds two. With a pair of snails hiding behind the front bumper, feeding a pair of intercoolers behind the grille, the tuner from Texas can set you up with 810 horsepower at 5100 RPM and 745 pound-feet of torque at 3300 RPM. You’ll even get a fully built engine, custom tuning, and upgraded transmission to go with that turbo kit.
If that’s a bit too ridiculous for your sensible tastes, a 605-horsepower package is also on the menu. Skip the heavy-duty engine build and you’ll still net nearly 200 horsepower over stock and a full 622 pound-feet of torque to go with it. Hennessey can always set you up with some unpressurized go-fast parts that’ll get you 475 horsepower and 485 pound-feet of torque, if forced induction isn’t your thing.
The resulting creations are aptly-named the VelociRaptor 475, 600, and 800 to match their respective power outputs. All come with a one-year/12,000-mile warranty and dyno tuning to guarantee performance. At the moment, we only have pricing of the mid-range VelociRaptor 600, which will set you back $22,950 if you do it yourself or $29,950 to have Hennessey do it. That’s a total invoice of $61,945 to build your own and $68,945 to have Hennessey build it, assuming you start with a bare-bones 6.2-liter Raptor.
A lot of change, no doubt, but how many other full-size trucks will get you to 60 mph in under six seconds and land the jump you’re rocketing toward?
