Hennessey Transforms Ford Raptor R Into ‘VelociRaptoR 6×6’

Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has transformed the Ford F-150 Raptor R into a six-wheel-drive supertruck with the introduction of its new ‘VelociRaptoR 6×6.’

The ‘VelociRaptoR 6×6,’ which utilizes a third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor R as its foundation, is upgraded with an extended boxed frame and a second, fully functional, locking rear axle, improving tractive grip by more than 50%, the company said. The suspension features live valve Fox dampers, while Brembo performance brakes ensure strong stopping power. A three-inch lift raises the body in preparation for Hennessey’s custom 20-inch alloy wheels wrapped in 37-inch off-road tires. Lastly, an 8-foot-long load bed replaces the stock 5.5-foot (1.67-meter) bed.

Complementing the mechanical upgrades are new front and rear bumpers, LED lights, and Hennessey VelociRaptoR badging. The resulting ‘VelociRaptoR 6×6’ is nearly 27-ft. long, roughly 7-ft. tall, and 7-ft. wide with a curb weight of approximately 6,500 pounds.

The burly Ford Raptor R engine, a supercharged 5.2-liter V8, is untouched, offering 700 hp and 640 lb.-ft torque.

John Hennessey, company founder and CEO: “The supercharged V8 in the Raptor R perfectly complements our limited edition ‘VelociRaptoR 6×6’ package,” said John Hennessey, company founder and CEO. “The upgrade boosts traction and improves utility, which makes the 6×6 practical and functional. It’s a real blast to drive – I consider it a go-anywhere supertruck with head-turning stage presence.”
