Hennessey VelociRaptor V8 Hits 60 mph in 4.1s
Hennessey will build only 100 examples.
The Performance Engineering Company has brought yet another crazy creation in the form of 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor V8 at SEMA show. Hennessey modified the Ford F-150 Raptor inside and out. The company ditched the V6 for a Ford 5.0-liter V8 engine and connected it to a powerful 2.9-liter supercharger system. The tuned powerhouse now creates a power of 758 horses enabling it to cover 60 mph in just 4.1 seconds.
Yes, you have read it right, it is so powerful that it can give a tough time to a Mustang GT. If that is too much power, the Raptor fans have another choice from Hennessey in the form of 605 hp VelociRaptor.
Hennessey didn’t stop at just swapping the engine and tuning it, they also installed a six-inch lift kit, 20-inch alloy wheels, 37-inch BF Goodrich KM03 off-road tires, and the full VelociRaptor body kit. The V8 numbered plaques can be found inside and on the engine bay.
Hennessey will build only 100 examples of 2019 Hennessey VelociRaptor V8 with a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty. However, bear in mind the monstrous truck will not come cheap. The customers have to dole out $147,950 for a fully new VelociRaptor.
