25th Anniversary Hennessey Performance VelociRaptor is an Absolute Monster
Legendary automotive tuner, Hennessey Performance has cranked things up to maximum performance to celebrate their 25th anniversary. Behold their latest creation, the HPE 700 VelociRaptor…because who doesn’t need an F-150 with 704 horsepower?
For the last few years, the world has fallen in love with Hennessey’s insane interpretation of the F-150, the VelociRaptor; it made an appearance on Top Gear and has been paraded all over automotive media in general. But with the new HPE 700 25th Anniversary version of the VelociRaptor, Hennessey decided that its “normal” recipe just wasn’t enough.
Hennessey threw the supercharged kitchen sink at this one: The truck features a 2.9 liter supercharger system, stainless steel cat-back exhaust, fuel injector upgrade, high-flow air induction, 20-inch wheels, Hennessey Pre-Runner front and rear bumpers, specialty off-road suspension and an absolutely menacing custom paint job.
Only 25 of these super-rare trucks will be made, and they will not last long. Twenty five years is no small feat in an industry like this one–and they chose quite the special project to show off such an accomplishment.
So join me in raising a glass to all of the mental Ford-based creations Hennessey has given us over the years…and to seeing what they will come up with for fifty years in business.
