Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 and 800 based on Ford F-150 SVT Raptor 6.2 [video]

Texas-based tuners Hennessey Performance has finished development on the Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 Twin Turbo and VelociRaptor 800 Twin Turbo trucks, based on the recently-released Ford F-150 SVT Raptor.  Both special vehicles use a 6.2-liter V8 engine, just like the base model, but with a host of upgrades.

Getting the VelociRaptor 600 to produce 605 horsepower (451 kW / 613 PS) and up to 622 ft-lb (842 Nm) of torque was no easy feat.  The company installed twin ball bearing turbochargers, dual intercoolers, improved fuel injection system, and a new stainless steel exhaust.  Aside from modifying the engine's control unit, the firm adds an electronic boost controller, dual blow-off valves and dual 44 millimeter wastegates.

It takes a bit more to make the truck a VelociRaptor 800.  After adding aluminum pistons, steel connecting rods, a balanced crankshaft, and further modifications to the ECU, the engine kicks out 810 hp (604 kW / 821 PS).  Maximum torque rises to an impressive 745 ft-lb (1009 Nm).

Look for the Hennessey VelociRaptor 800 to sprint to 60 mph in about five seconds flat, with the 600 being a few tenths of a second slower.  Pricing for the upgrade package starts at $22,950, with installation costing an additional $7,000.  Base price of the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor begins at about $42,000.

The new 6.2L V8 in Ford’s F-150 Raptor truck may have only been out for a few months, but it’s already the next of a long line of performance vehicles to receive the Hennessey twin turbo treatment.

Introducing the VelociRaptor 600 and 800 twin turbo upgrades.

Continuing where the supercharged 5.4L VelociRaptor 500 left off, the VelociRaptor 600 and 800 pick up the slack for the 6.2 as a viable supercharger option is still months down the road. Rated at 605 bhp and 810 bhp, respectively, development of the twin turbo system is well underway, with a running vehicle (see video) already giving us a hint at what’s to come.

Lol I like the guy complaining about the oil wells drying up, our earth has been alive millions of years, oil eventually reproduces itself, it's like a human reproducing its saliva, if you'd read more, the wells we've dried up are starting to gain oil again, we will never simply run out if oil..

cant we all just get along? lol but thats why people are free to buy what ever they want, if you dont like it then dont buy it, personally i would buy one just to tow my boat to the bay, but my diesel does that job just fine, but if i did buy one i would be one of those people that would actually use it for what it is intended for i would have a blast driving in the sand and on the trails, and the wasteful part in my opinion is when a person buys a vehicle and does not use it for what it was made for. if i ever bought (or could afford) say a ferrari, i wouldnt trailer it or keep it locked in a showroom, i would drive it to its potential, and fully enjoy what it was made for.

Foxhound.... U said it, and with the proper attitude…. Some people in here speak as if someone used their account to buy the car… And one dude compares it to a dune buggy!!! This car is defiantly not drivable in Europe, due to the cost of gas, small streets, no parking, and not being able to fully test its off-road capabilities… On the other hand, in the US or where I am at, there are some crazy sand dunes, desert heat, and plenty of open roads. Not to mention, that I can put 2-3 of my motorbikes on that thing, without worrying about hitching a trailer… I personally have many off-road vehicles and have tested a lot more… New wrangler underpowered, FJ falls a part, Euro 4x4’s not suited for the desert heat… This one is heavy, but really impressive… Being hateful towards car enthusiasts which own more than 10 cars on this site, means one is either young, poor, or simply a moron…. Or A, B & C…….. lol

I agree as well. I just bought 2 of these and love them. I will park them between my F-117 stealth attack plane and my Buggati Veyron. I may have to move my M1A1 Abrams tank out of the way to make room thought.

Sure bro..... Sorry this website is under maintenance, please come back at 10:PM 26th Junewe apologise for any inconvenience caused... Do you own one!!! Even if you did, you still require off-roading skills... stop worrying about my bank account and move along… Besides, this car is off the shelf, where I am right now is 52 C… U can easily modify a car to gain max power, but can you control its cooling the way you like…. If you don’t know mechanics please don’t reply, and if your reply is based on something you read, I am not interested….

I'd drive rings around you in this 'Rage'. http://www.ragemotorsport.com/shop/custom.asp?cpid=custom2 I would probably have a lot more fun too. Not to mention my fuel consumption would enable me to buy 6 for the price of one of yours, and fly me and my buddies to the Sahara to go dune racing... Even that would make more sense...

Please keep them out of the major cities. The roads are congested enough. Their purpose is for OFFROAD racing not reving them up while waiting at the traffic light in a crowded intersection.....

So 200 extra PS buy you a few tenths of a second from 0 to 60? What a bargain!!! I'm really beginning to loathe the wastefulness of these American tuner companies. An 800 BHP twin turbo V8 glutton behemoth, exactly the thing every American household needs with oil running out in the next 10 years. Everyone is trying to cut down on fuel consumption, but for some reason the American bubble still feels they can pollute freely. Nobody needs this piece of junk truck. Somebody needs to tell them that all the oil wells in Texas have run dry a long time ago...

Here we are on a car website, full of Bugatti Veyrons, Mercedes SL65s, BMW M5s, Lexus LFAs, and Ferrari anythings, (all of which probably get worse fuel mileage than this truck) and this fool above me spies one American truck that is performance enhanced and starts an anti American, stereotype fueled, rant. I know that hating Americans on this website is cool and all, but I can see your just trying to fit in. Just because you watched "An Inconvenient Truth" does not give you a phd in global climate and natural resources. Stop posting what you think will help you fit in and start being objective. If you don't like the truck, just say so and move on with your life.

"I'm really beginning to loathe the wastefulness of these American tuner companies." Hate to break the bad news to you but Brabus, Lorinser, Mugen, Alpina, etc., didn't make a name for themselves by increasing the fuel economy of the Prius. "An 800 BHP twin turbo V8 glutton behemoth, exactly the thing every American household needs with oil running out in the next 10 years." If you think that "every American household" (all 115 million of them) has the wherewithal to purchase a $70,000 anything, much less something as *ahem* practical as an 800hp pickup truck that my mother couldn't climb up into, then your view of the state of the U.S. economy is what some would consider to be quite optimistic. "Nobody needs this piece of junk truck" How silly, you actually think that this vehicle is about satisfying a need.

First of all, your personal comments about me are irrelevant. I doubt you know me, and I've dealt with plenty of people to not be concerned with your childish banter. I thank you for being 'the benchmark' for mediocrity though. Fitting in? I don't care about such trivial things. Let's try and have an "objective" discussion, even though there is no such thing as being objective, I can only be subjective. Now, even though I may disagree with you, I would also like to understand why you don't see something morally wrong with the philosophy that spawned this rubbish waste of metal. As for supercars, well, they are as the name implies… supercars, made for the few who enjoy driving and can afford them. Personally, I applaud the people who spend 1mil on a supercar for the thrill of driving / enjoyment / image / etc. Clearly driving a supercar isn't the same as driving a truck and spending 70K$ on a truck isn't the same as spending 50K$ on an RS4. So why would you buy a truck that sprints to 60 in under 5 seconds? Because you enjoy driving? It's very American of you to assume that I get my opinions from documentaries because that's how you form yours. I'm not particularly concerned with any form of biased media, because the truth is often somewhere in the middle, a 'benchmark' for truth, if you will (Assuming there is such a thing as an absolute truth). Fact is, a Ford F-150 is sold every few minutes, a vehicle you would consider reasonable, but actually isn't. I wonder why, for some reason you don't… bigger is better? Does it make you evil if you buy one? No, but it makes you wasteful. It's cool to hate America… are you serious? Hating America is like hating the world we live in… rebellious yes, but not really productive or educated. Edit: Performance tuners like Brabus work for people who enjoy driving. When they focus their energies on useless cars like 4x4s and Crossovers I don't see the point in that either.

SVT Raptor is not a street vehicle. 0-60 times are irrelevant, this is an offroad vehicle. It's capabilities offroad make it a Supercar in that sense. Yes Ford trucks are sold like crazy here, but an SVT Raptor I have only seen 2 in person since they started being sold, a Henessey Raptor I have seen none, they are more exclusive than a Black Series. The thrill of offroading is just as real as blasting down the Autobahn I can attest to that. Just because "YOU" don't see a point does not make you right. I see no point in a Veyron because I have personally seen a 1500hp Camaro run a 8 second quarter mile, then drive over 10,000 miles and average 21mpg, all for less than $30,000. But do I hate on the Veyron... No, it's an awesome piece of engineering, just as this truck is.

You assume that the people who buy trucks in America actually drive them offroad, which they don't. Most of them haul themselves from highschool and back. Same goes for all the luxury 4x4s, and that, in fact, makes them pointless. Like you so obviously pointed out, the purpose of trucks is to drive offroad, which means they would need a lot of torque at low revs, and probably have no use for two turbochargers which would lag before they manage to spool up. Not to mention the dust particles that would clog up the intercoolers. This truck wasn't made to go offroading, so how would you call something like this? Making a fast truck, or a truck that handles like a sportscar defeats logic. If you want to go fast, buy a fast car, not a fast truck. Still you can't answer the basic question, why do people buy wasteful trucks to simply transport themselves on endless straight highways? As for your comparison, the Veyron is made for the thrill of driving and is an engineering dream to aspire to. These are the sole reasons why people should make / buy supercars. Yes, there is a lot of sense in making an affordable sportscar, and I am all for 'muscle' cars. Anyone should be able to enjoy driving, not just the people with deep pockets. Still, there is no room for comparison, the sheer engineering feat of the Veyron was worth its production. Even if it remained a one-off concept car. To compare that with this Ford... Edit: You never wondered why they don't use trucks in the WRC? Maybe trucks aren't even good for what they were initially designed for... just a thought...

Trucks are designed for truckin. They have a bed to haul stuff in. You put things in the back that are typically not well suited to be put inside the interior of a car like dirt, wood, or dead bodies. Their rugged nature makes them well suited for offloading, especially four wheel drive versions. In the US a lot of households, actually the majority live in widespread small towns, have medium income, and can't afford or prefer to do building, landscaping, or other large projects on their own. When it comes to loading up raw materials you cannot beat a truck. Someday when you have time watch a trophy truck race. They travel at high speed over terrain that would likely shred a WRX.

115mil households according to the quote-master EDavis. Over 2mil trucks sold annually (it's probably more than that but thank god these numbers are declining) coupled with over 6 years of longevity means there are probably over 12mil trucks roaming the highways (not considering peak years in which Ford alone sold 1mil F-150s). So roughly 10% of all American households need to build / haul / travel to remote mountaintops? We haven't even factored in the regular 4x4 behemoths people drive in America. There are plenty of things you can say about America, but it having an underdeveloped road network isn't one of them, so are you honestly trying to say that all the people who bought trucks actually need them? Anywhere else in the world people transport building materials in what you call 'Big-Rigs'. There are plenty of brilliant cars you can't buy in the US because of these bad habits - The VW Scirocco, Alfa-Romeos, almost all the hot hatches. At 22K (the price of an F-150) your choices could be limitless. The smartest pitch has been the 'smart' car. You could actually drive on of these in New York and find a parking space... buy the Brabus model and you could do the same, only faster. How come this doesn't make more sense to you? Why are the initial reactions to the 'smart' on the lines of "this is a clown car"? Smart cars are as common as trees but every time I see one, it still puts a smile on my face.
