“The Velociraptor 6×6 is the ultimate off-road vehicle,” said John Hennessey, founder and CEO of Hennessey Performance. And we have no reason to doubt him.
The Texas tuning ace and namesake of Hennessey Performance Engineering premiered his wildest creation to date at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas on Tuesday: the Hennessey Velociraptor 6×6. The VRap, as we’re going to call it, is based on the Ford Raptor, obviously, but gets a 600-hp twin-turbo upgrade, a new suspension, six(!) new 20-inch wheels and six(!) off-road Toyo tires.
Visually, Hennessey adds new front and rear bumpers, a roll bar and LED lights. A six-piston Brembo brake system is optional, for an additional $22,000. The “base” price, before the brakes, is a wallet-shattering $349,000. But, but, but … that includes the price of 2018 Ford Raptor, which is $51,080.
