You Can Own the Top Gear Hennessey VelociRaptor!
Fans of the iconic BBC TV show, Top Gear, will undoubtedly recognize this particular Hennessey VelociRaptor. It’s not that any other VelociRaptor wouldn’t stand out, but this yellow monster is the very same truck Jeremy Clarkson drove across the frozen tundra of Canada.
This mighty beast performed quite admirably in the white stuff, thanks to a laundry list of modifications performed on an already very capable off-road truck. The biggest of which are made to the already stout 6.2 liter V8, where a supercharger and intercooler were installed to help boost horsepower to 623 at the wheels.
In order to honor its name, a stainless steel exhaust has been added for extra-growl, along with the requisite Hennessey badging and embroidery inside and out. Custom wheels and tires sit underneath, along with some suspension upgrades, off-road bumpers with a front winch, and ultra-bright LED lighting.
In the end, it all adds up to a beast-of-a-truck that held up quite admirably in some pretty horrible conditions, and even managed a hilarious sideways lap around the Top Gear test track with the Stig at the wheel. Now you can relive those memories if you happen to have $109,000 laying around, of course!
