Not content to let Mercedes-Benz’s G 63 6×6 own the market for SUV excess, Hennessey Performance Engineering has revealed its latest aftermarket package for the Ford F-150 Raptor, which turns the dune-crushing pickup into a six-wheeled monster.
Dubbed the VelociRaptor 6×6, this new package literally expands on Hennessey’s existing VelociRaptor kit by adding a second rear axle and turning the truck into the stuff of adolescent boys’ dreams.
Beyond that obvious enhancement, the “basic” $295,000 US VelociRaptor 6×6 gets upgraded Fox suspension parts, 20-inch wheels and off-road tires, unique front and rear bumpers, a roll bar, and LED lighting.
That leaves the Raptor’s standard twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 under the hood, with its 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. But if sticking with the base engine in such an otherwise wild truck seems counter-intuitive, Hennessey is happy to offer 6×6 buyers the same 600-plus hp upgrade available in the regular Raptor.
It’s a package that brings uprated turbochargers, stainless steel exhaust, a larger air-to-air intercooler, and a re-tuned engine control computer.
That extra power is worth another $22,500 US to Hennessey, which will also happily trade even more of your cash for Brembo brakes, even larger wheels and tires, and bespoke interior finishes.
Hilariously, this isn’t even the most excessive off-roader we can think of: that honour goes to Latvia’s Dartz, which turns Mercedes-Benz SUVs into vehicles like the bulletproof Black Alligator, whose maker says offers better protection than the U.S. President’s limousine and can be purchased with cryptocurrency.
