American tuner Hennessey is introducing a new division called Armored Performance Vehicles (APV), which as the name suggest makes armored vehicles based on different cars. The one you see here is the supercool 2012 VelociRaptor APV based on the new Ford Raptor Super Crew, powered by a tuned version of the supercharged 6.2L V8.

The standard SuperCrew V8 has a mere 411 hp, but the one in the VelociRaptor, like the non-armored version, makes 575 hp. So it’s got enough power to get you outta trouble in a jiffy, or just provide great fun while you go camping or hunting or whatever the hell you do to have fun!

The car will offer seating options for six, seven or eight seats. A full line of electronic upgrades will also be available, including: Satellite TV, high-speed internet, entertainment systems and mobile office systems.

“Adding armor protection to SUV’s such as Chevy Suburbans and Cadillac Escalades can easily increase vehicle weights from 6,000 lbs to over 10,000 lbs”, said company founder and president, John Hennessey. “We are excited to be able to apply our 20 years of high-performance experience to the armor vehicle industry.”

“The VelociRaptor APV will showcase the highest level of protection, comfort and performance all in one vehicle,” John states.

• Cadillac Escalade – 500 to 1000 hp
• Chevrolet Suburban – 500 to 1000 hp
