Specialty car manufacturer Hennessey Performance unveiled their new custom Ford 2018 Raptor: the Velociraptor at the 2017 SEMA Show and it is impressive.
Jurassic Park taught us all that velociraptors were most likely one of the most fearsome and agile hunters of the dinosaur kingdom. Can Hennessey’s truck live up to its jurassic name and be one of the most fearsome and agile pickups on the planet?
John Hennessey founded Hennessey Performance in 1991 and all their vehicle modifications have been about maximizing speed and performance, both of which hold true for the Velociraptor. This truck is about pushing it to the next level.
The pickup features an impressive 605 hp twin-turbo 3.5 L ecoboost engine. That’s enough to get from 0-60 in 4.9 seconds. For 6×6 pickup, that’s very fast.
Not only that, but the Velociraptor has been heavily modified to the point that it puts out tons of power and torque. As much as this vehicle is about luxury, it’s just as much about getting the job done.
Based off some accounts at the SEMA Show, the Velociraptor features 520-foot pounds of torque. Clearly, Hennessey spared no expense.
