Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6: Super six-wheeler debuts
American tuning company Hennessey revealed VelociRaptor 600 earlier this year as a performance oriented F-150 pickup and now it has been given a 6×6 version of it. It won’t go on sale in the UK, with prices starting at $399,950 in the US.
Hennessey is no stranger to adding some wheels to the popular truckswith VelociRaptor 6×6 sitting alongside Dodge Ram based Mammoth 6×6 and Goliath 6×6 based on Chevrolet Silverado. It’s no surprise that six-wheeled alternatives to the VelociRaptor 6×6 from elsewhere are not in plentiful supply, with Mercedes decided against tracking it 6×6 G 63.
Hennessey wants to point out that they’ve done more than just add an extra axle to the VelociRaptor 600. There’s Fox suspension all around with dual-lock rear axles to help off-road.
The extra length of the 6×6 allows for a larger load compartment – 45% larger than the standard F-150. The VelociRaptor 6×6 is also several inches taller than a standard truck thanks to a 3-inch lift, upgraded 20-inch wheels, and chunky 37-inch off-road tires. New front and rear bumpers and LED lights make the 6×6 stand out from the standard Raptor.
Powering the 6×6 is the same turbocharged 3.5-litre V6 found in the VelociRaptor 600. This means 558bhp and 911Nm of torque – however, that’s a bit short of the 1,012bhp by Mammoth 6×6.
There’s a logical side to Hennessey’s latest crazy super truck. The company will offer a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty, and the machine can be ordered through Ford dealers.
