Watch the Hennessey VelociRaptor Kick Up Snow and Mud

By -


Before the fracas that took the BBC 2 show Top Gear off the air, Jeremy Clarkson participated in a challenge to take a truck to rescue Richard Hammond in the wilderness of Canada.

To get there, the producers at Top Gear called up Hennessey Performance Engineering and asked them to send the baddest truck they had. That ended up being the HPE600 VelociRaptor.

In this video, Mr. Hennessey describes the modifications that are made to a stock F-150 SVT Raptor to make it a supercharged VelociRaptor. While that’s exciting and all, that’s not the reason to watch the video.

Watching the VelociRaptor kick up snow and mud while drifting is the reason to watch the video. Oh, and the glorious sound of the 6.2L V8 with a blower attached it it. Yeah, that about sums it up.

There really isn’t much new information in this video that we don’t already know about HPE or the VelociRaptor, but it is over two minutes packed with hot, gratuitous, VelcoiRaptor action. That’s as good of reason as any to share with you all.
