2013 Hennessey VelociRaptor

Introducing the Hennessey® VelociRaptor® SUV

2013 Hennessey VelociRaptor
SEALY, Texas - Hennessey Performance (HPE) has announced that it is offering its VelociRaptor SÚV conversion. Based on the Ford F-150 Raptor, the team from HPE transforms SVT's super crew cab pick-up truck into a full-sized sport-utility vehicle (SÚV) with seating for up to 8 people.

'Over the past three years we have built nearly 400 upgraded Raptor trucks for enthusiasts around the world', said Don Goldman, CEO of Hennessey Performance. 'We are now very excited to be able to offer the VelociRaptor SÚV to those who like the Raptor but want more seats and space.'

All of the factory Ford Raptor truck components and systems are kept in tact. At this time, Hennessey Performance has not yet had an opportunity to test the off-road capabilities of the VelociRaptor SÚV. Thus, the company suggests that buyers should intend using this vehicle for on-road as well as light to moderate off-road duties. 'Don't plan on pre-running Baja or negotiating Rubicon with our SÚV - that is not why we built it', said company founder, John Hennessey. But, if you're looking for the ultimate vehicle to drive from Aspen to Telluride in January, the VelociRaptor SÚV would be perfect.'

The VelociRaptor SÚV base price is $149,500 and production is going to be limited to just 30 units per year. The same 6.2L 411 bhp Ford V8 powers the entry level SÚV while Hennessey also offers their VelociRaptor 600 Supercharged upgrade at an additional cost. Other optional upgrades include: Brembo front brake upgrade, larger wheels and tires, LED lighting upgrades, bespoke interior and electronic upgrades. Security and armoring systems are also available.

While vehicle weight is increased by approximately 600 lbs, the standard 411 bhp SÚV is able to achieve 0-60 mph times of 7.5 seconds. Bumping power to 600 bhp with the VelociRaptor 600 Supercharged upgrade will drop the 0-60 mph time to 5.9 seconds. AMG G-Wagon and Range Rover owners beware.

The Hennessey VelociRaptor SÚV can be ordered directly from Hennessey Performance or through select Hennessey / Ford dealers.
