It doesn’t get any better than the big fuel-sucking, lifted, high-performance trucks in the good o’ U-S-of-A. Mount those flags in the bed and kick some ass! Now, you can get a fistful of what makes the USA the greatest country in the world with the new Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6!
The new Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 is a six-wheeled high-performance truck the likes of a Mercedes-Ben G63 AMG 6×6 and Flying Huntsman 6×6 Land Rover Defender. The upcoming monster truck is based on the 2017 Ford Raptor 4-door that’s been extensively modified to accommodate 6×6 locking rear axles.
“Our VelociRaptor 6X6 is pure aggression on wheels – all six of them”, said Hennessey. “The new 2017 Raptor is going to be one of the best all-around trucks ever built. We are excited to help take it to the next level both in terms of performance and exclusivity”.
But having six wheels is just the start. The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 will feature a beefed up Fox suspension and 20-inch of road wheels and tires. Optional Brembo brakes will be available for the front and rear axles along with larger wheels and beefier tires made to destroy any kind of terrain.
If the added axle and extended body doesn’t tip you off, the more aggressive front and rear bumpers, rollbar, LED lights, and massive fenders surely will.
The power behind this guts and glory isn’t anything to trifle with either. The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 features the Velociraptor 600 Twin-Turbo upgrade that includes new turbochargers, a stainless steel exhaust, air-to-air intercooler, and software tuning for a total output in excess of 600 horsepower.
The new Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 will start at $295,000 for the complete vehicle. Customers that don’t want the added axle but need the added power will be able to purchase the VelociRaptor 600 Twin-Turbo upgrade for their Ford Raptor for $22,500.
