Devil From Texas is Here, Hennessey’s 600bhp, Six-Wheeled RAPTOR!
Hennessey Performance is a tuning company from Texas, Now, Hennessey Performance is adding an extra pair of wheels to the hotly-anticipated 2017 Ford Raptor. With some enormous power to the engine. It’s called the VelociRaptor 6X6 ‘concept’ and I call it ‘Devil From Texas.’
Hennessey’s kit includes locking rear axles, upgraded Baja-spec Fox suspension, new 20-inch wheels, chunky off-road rubber, beefy get-the-hell-out-of-my-way front and rear bumpers, a new rollbar and blinding LED lights. We’re not sure if it’ll be as sophisticated as Mercedes’ six-wheeled G63, but at £230,000, Hennessey’s Raptor is a lot cheaper than the £370,000 G63 6X6.
You can of course upgrade your VelociRaptor to ‘600’ spec. Ticking that particular box gives you two bigger turbos onto the 3.5-litre EcoBoost twin-turbo V6, and a dyno receipt that reads in excess of 600bhp. Standard Raptor comes with 450bhp, but still fed through Ford’s new ten-speed transmission.
