Since the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R is out with its massive supercharged V8, it was just inescapable that somebody would certainly offer it the six-wheel therapy. As well as we’re not the least little bit stunned that Hennessey Efficiency would certainly be the firm to do it. Like with the normal Raptor (VelociRaptor) and also the Ram TRX, it has actually exposed its VelociRaptoR (not a typo, and also crucial for setting apart in between the R variation and also the normal one), that will certainly offer you much more, well, a lot more.
Just like Hennessey’s various other 6×6 incredibly vehicles, the VelociRaptoR’s structure has actually been included suit the added back axle. It’s a totally practical axle, also, and also includes a storage locker. Hennessey has actually likewise seen to it the upgraded suspension still utilizes the Fox live-valve suspension that Ford made a huge offer around, and also we discovered actually remarkable. Hennessey did fine-tune points a little bit by including 3 inches of lift along with 20- inch wheels with 37- inch tires.
The general size of the lorry raises to 27 feet in solution of that additional axle, yet there’s an additional advantage to it: even more bed size. As opposed to the conventional Raptor R’s 5.5-foot bed, the VelociRaptoR has an 8-foot bed. We’re not exactly sure that’ll persuade your better half to allow you obtain one, yet it deserves a shot.
Remarkably, the powertrain of the VelociRaptoR is unblemished. It coincides supercharged 5.2-liter V8 production 700 horse power and also 640 pound-feet of torque. It’s not like we assumed the Raptor R was slow-moving, so we question also several possible clients will certainly be troubled.
The VelociRaptoR is offered to purchase currently. It’s not economical. The base cost is $499,999, yet that does at the very least consist of the contributor vehicle, so the cost is for the entire point. Like various other Hennessey automobiles, it likewise includes a 3-year/ 36,000- mile service warranty (possibly that will certainly persuade your better half). Consumers can purchase with suppliers that collaborate with Hennessey, or Hennessey straight.
