Ford F-150-based Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6 is the ultimate Raptor

With its 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine, the forthcoming Ford Ranger Raptor will be a monster on UK roads, at least until Hennessey brings its VelociRaptor 6x6 across the Atlantic.

The Texas-based hypercar manufacturer has taken the latest Ford F-150 Raptor — already a vehicle that would swamp UK roads — and transformed it into a go-anywhere, six-wheel drive pickup.

Significantly longer than the F-150 Raptor it’s based on, the VelociRaptor 6x6 extension allows the load bed length to be increased to 2.4 metres — that’s 50% bigger than a Ford Ranger’s load bay. Hennessey has also raised the VelociRaptor significantly, thanks to a near-8cm list and upgraded 20-inch alloy wheels capable of taking 37-inch tyres.

Modifications made to the F-150 while creating the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6 go beyond simply extending the body and adding a third pair of wheels. Engineers have equipped the truck with Fox suspension and dual locking rear axles, providing 50% more traction. The firm has also upgraded the twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 powertrain with enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with blow-off valve, and an upgraded engine management system. The result is an output of 565hp and a mammoth 911Nm of torque.

John Hennessey, company founder and CEO

“Everything is bigger and faster in Texas, and our VelociRaptor 6x6 takes this concept to the extreme! Building on the capability, power, and presence of our VelociRaptor truck, our latest six-wheel drive offering will delight customers across the US and around the world with its power and go-anywhere abilities.”

Prices in the US start from $400,000 (£350,000), which includes a new Ford F-150 Raptor donor vehicle. Importing one into the UK will add significantly to that price, with shipping, import duty and VAT all chargeable.
