2015 Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 Kicks Serious Ass!
Sadly, Ford discontinued the SVT Raptor for the 2015 model year, and even though we fully expect a 2016 version to bow in less than a month at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, that hasn’t stopped the folks at Hennessey from making a 2015 version of their ass-hauling, off-road truck. At over 600 horsepower, the Hennessey VelociRaptor is quite a beast!
Hennessey takes a F-150 equipped with the 5.0L V8 and adds a big honking supercharger to boost output to over 600. A high-flow intake feeds air to the Roots-type supercharger at 8 psi of boost. Built on the FX4 package, the truck also has off-road credentials.
The wheels are 17″ Hennessey specials, with 33″ BFGoodrich tires. A high-tech coilover off-road suspension keeps everything in check, and a winch helps you get out of the deep stuff (or if you need to help someone else out along the trail). Brembo brakes will also be an option.
The best part? The whole package comes with a 3 year / 36,000 mile warranty! Hennessey promises to build no more than 500 of these trucks, making them a bit of a rarity. They’ll be sold at Ford dealerships and come with a price tag of $73,500. Considering how expensive trucks have become, it doesn’t really seem that bad to have a unique truck that’s more capable than most trucks on the road today.
