The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a cool truck, no doubt. What, then, can make it cooler? More power of course, which is exactly what Hennessey has for you. How does up to 810 horsepower grab you?
Go big and that's what Hennessey will set you up with. To very near double the output of the already-powerful 6.2-liter V-8, Hennessey doubles the turbos, then adds two. With a pair of snails hiding behind the front bumper feeding a pair of intercoolers behind the grille, the tuner from Texas can set you up with 810 horsepower at 5100 RPM and 745 pound-feet of torque at 3300 RPM. You'll even get a fully-built engine, custom tuning and upgraded transmission to go with that turbo kit.
If that's a bit too ridiculous for your sensible tastes, a 605-horsepower package is also on the menu. Skip the heavy-duty engine build and you'll still net nearly 200 horsepower over stock and a full 622 pound-feet of torque to go with it. If forced induction isn't your thing, Hennessey can always set you up with some unpressurized go-fast parts that'll get you 475 horsepower and 485 pound-feet of torque.
The resulting creations are aptly-named the VelociRaptor 475, 600 and 800 to match their respective power outputs. All come with a one-year/12,000-mile warranty and dyno tuning to guarantee performance. At the moment, we only have pricing of the mid-range VelociRaptor 600, which will set you back $22,950 if you do it yourself or $29,950 to have Hennessey do it. That's a total invoice of $61,945 to build your own and $68,945 to have Hennessey build it, assuming you start with a bare-bones 6.2-liter Raptor. A lot of change, no doubt, but how many other full-size trucks will get you to 60 mph in likely well under six seconds and land the jump you're rocketing towards?
