John Hennessey is at it again.
Hennessey, who has made quite a name for himself out of modifying sports and super cars, has unveiled his latest supercharged creation – a 600bhp Ford F-150, aptly called the VelociRaptor. This monster of a truck should fulfill every truck lover’s wildest fantasies.
Hennessey created this Frankentruck by taking the new 2015, aluminum-bodied Ford F-150, and tuning it to superpowered perfection. The 2015 F-150 is an ideal model for such modifications, as the truck is approximately 700 lbs lighter than the 2014 iteration, making it easier to get extra horsepower and speed out of the truck.
So what makes the VelociRaptor so special, though? Well, Hennessey has attached a Roots-type supercharger to the Ford’s native 5.0-litre V8, with 8psi of boost to produce an absolutely insane 600bhp of power.
If you’re interested in one of these incredibly unqiue super trucks, you should act quickly, as just 500 VelociRaptors will be built this year. Naturally, the tricked-out trucks will cost you a pretty penny, with prices starting at $73,500 for the base F-150 FX4 Super Crew. Of course, you can add on all sorts of bells and whistles if you’re so inclined, as well.
While the VelociRaptor might be slightly lacking in practicality, this sexy, supercharged truck is certain to make a splash in 2015. And if you ever find yourself in nearly impassable off-road conditions, there’s probably no better vehicle.
