It's no secret that the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is one of the staff favorites around here, as well as numerous truck enthusiasts across the country and around the world. But even near perfection can be improved upon, and Hennessey has had ample experience massaging Ford's off-road hero for even more stupendous performance.
To demonstrate the potent performance potential of the company's VelociRaptor 600 package relative to a stock Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, the company released this video showing the two taking it to the track for a good old-fashioned straight-line throwdown. Even with the added weight of a front winch on the VelociRaptor, it easily pulls away from the stock truck on the straightaway.
As often seems the case with Hennessey's creations, there's always something a little wilder and more powerful yet, and if the 600 hp and 622 lb-ft of torque is still not enough to satisfy your need for speed, Hennessey also offers an even more ludicrous VelociRaptor 800 with twin turbochargers producting 810 hp and 745 lb-ft.
If you need a little more people-hauling practicality than that offered by a standard F-150 Raptor, don't forget about Hennessey's latest custom creation, the VelociRaptor SUV, with deluxe seating for up to eight passengers. But bring your Amex Black card with you. Starting price for the VelociRaptor SUV is $159,500.
