Ford VelociRaptor 6×6 Test Drive (Video)
Hop onboard the wildest and most expensive Ford truck of all time and hear about it from the creator’s mouth — John Hennessey.
There isn’t a more badass pickup truck in the world — at the moment — than the Ford VelociRaptor 6×6 built by Hennessey Performance. This majestic beast has joined the ranks of Ford’s uber-cool trucks like the original Bigfoot and the last-generation Lightning.
At a starting price of $349,000, the VelociRaptor 6×6 is quite literally the definition of a millionaire’s toy truck. In addition, an estimated total production of 50 trucks for the American Market (and 50 for overseas) means that an Average Joe will most likely never even see one on the road.
Six wheels, three differentials, three axles, and one twin-turbocharged V6 motor that makes 600 horsepower are what makes up this off-road monster. The video posted on the Hennessey Performance YouTube channel features a sold customer’s unit, which means the video test drive is limited to streets (no mud), but the tuning guru promises that one will be made in the near future.
Of course, the question of “Why would anyone want a six-wheeled Raptor?” arises every time we share about this truck. And like John Hennessey, himself said in the video, “Because we can, and because it’s cool.” He also goes on to say that his customers probably won’t off-road it too much, “They’re probably going to park it in front of a fancy restaurant or a cool hotel.” We think he’s right.
Would you off-road this enormous beast?
