Hennessey Velociraptor Arrives in Australia


Mental six-wheel Hennessey Velociraptor is now available in Australia, but it ain’t cheap

 The Ford F-150 Raptor is more than enough pick up for most people. A thumping EcoBoost V6 engine, trick suspension and garish styling make it fast, capable and a head turner. But what happens if that isn’t enough for you? You want more power, more capability and more jaw-prying power. Enter the Hennessey VelociRaptor.

The Hennessey VelociRaptor is stretched so it now has six wheels, covering so it’ll definitely stand out in traffic. Then there’s the turbocharged V6 engine. Customers can choose a number of mods including upgraded turbos, a bigger intercooler, new conrods, new ECU software and much more. The end result is a ute with up to 596kW. Really.

There are also Brembo brakes on all six wheels and Fox Racing shock absorbers, to boost the VelociRaptor’s capability.

All VelociRaptors come with a unique build plate to make them even more special.

Should you wish to make a VelociRaptor yours, you’ll have to get in touch with Melbourne-based American Vehicle Sales, who have won the rights to convert, modify and sell the VelociRaptor down under. And the asking price? $505,000. But at least a Ferrari can’t go off-road.
