The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 Can be Yours for Only $349K!
While it’s definitely one hell of an impressive truck, the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 comes with a pretty steep price.
One thing about us Americans is that we’re extremely difficult to keep content. Ford Motors has been pumping out F-150 Raptor trucks, which are ultimately pretty impressive trucks, but then there are companies like Hennessey that don’t settle for just “impressive” and that can’t help but raise the bar a few more notches. But, we thank God that they do because that’s how we end up with trucks like the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6, which is nothing short of amazing.
The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 first appeared in 2016, but underwent about 11 months of modifications and was not perfected until this year’s SEMA event in Las Vegas, NV. However, now that the VelociRaptor 6×6 is up to John Hennessey’s par, they’ve announced that they’re ready to put the monster into production. However, when we say production, we don’t mean along the lines of a standard F-150 production. We mean a total production of only a whopping 50 units. The VelociRaptor isn’t going to be cheap, either (most likely because of the tiny production). Back in November, those around the auto communities had announced that the 6×6 reptile will be starting at the low price of $295,000 (not really so low). Now, the retail has soared an additional 17% to a price of $349,000.
The Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 is basically a massive version of the F-150 with an upgraded suspension, upgrading braking system, 6×6 locking rear axels, Toyo off-road tires, 20” wheels, and a very long list of other various external upgrades. As you can imagine, Hennessey did an excellent job of making the truck look amazing. As we said earlier in this article, Americans can sometimes be difficult to satisfly, so Hennessey has also provided some additional upgrades for those that wish to go beyond the $349K mark. One of the specific upgrades, for example, is the upgraded brake package that features 6-piston Brembo calipers. The brake package is available for only $22,000 which is chump change for a $350K truck and probably well worth the additional 6%.
Under the hood of this beast lies a twin-turbo engine that puts out a solid 605 horsepower and 622 lb-ft of torque. To attempt to put that power into perspective for you, the the huge 6×6 is able to go 0 – 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
As you can see, the Hennessey VelociRaptor is definitely ferocious and a well-designed truck. However, the company is definitely proud of her and intends to be well compensated for the amount of time that was spent making it the final product that you see today. Hennessey is currently taking orders for the 50 trucks that they intend to produce, so get yours now!
