Following the enormous success of their F-150-based VelociRaptor pickup, which even got a feature on the old Top Gear, Hennessey Performance has now come up with a six-wheel version based on the 2017 Ford Raptor truck. Simply called the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6, this monster has Mercedes G63 6×6 in its sights.
Shown in concept form in these official renderings, Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 will have a number of advantages over its main rival the G63 6×6. First and foremost, it looks a lot more badass than the Benz. Then there is the fact that Hennessey puts no limit on the number of cars they produce (they have sold over 800 of the old VelociRaptor), and of course there is the question of the price. Starting at $295,000 this 6×6 is not exactly cheap, but it is cheaper than any G63 6×6 you can find in the market today.
If we cut to the chase and give you the main highlights of Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 straight, the list includes the base 2017 Raptor 4-door truck, 6X6 locking rear axles, upgraded Fox suspension, upgraded 20-inch wheels and off-road tires, special front and rear bumpers, roll bar and LED lights. As the name suggests, the truck also get the 600+ performance package (also available for regular Raptor customers) with upgraded twin turbochargers, stainless steel exhaust modifications, upgraded front mounted air to air intercooler and plumbing and re-tuned factory computer.
As for the optional features you can specify for additional cost, there is Brembo front and rear brake upgrade, larger wheels and tires, LED lighting upgrades, bespoke interiors, electronic upgrades and armoring systems.
