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.

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….

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...
