What do you get when you cross a dinsosaur with a Ford F-Series pickup truck? Hennessey Peformance Engineering’s latest creation: the VelociRaptor 6×6.
Hennessey’s VelociRaptor 6×6 is what one imagines if the Ford Raptor was combined with the speed, agility and cleverness of a velociraptor. The 6×6 beast will be limited to a production run 50 vehicles. It comes in at $349,000.
Taking 11 months from concept to finish, the VelociRaptor 6×6 is the successor to the original four-wheeled Hennessey Performance VelociRaptor, which debuted in 2010.
The company had no plans to continue the line, but a customer request changed all that. Hennessey produced a custom twin-turbo package on the customer’s 2010 Ford Raptor, and the demand skyrocketed once enthusiasts found out.

Of course, the truck’s appearance on Top Gear USA in 2011 didn’t hurt the truck’s popularity or sales. Thus far, Hennessey has built more than 1,000 four-wheeled VelociRaptors.
So, what does $349,000 get you? Here are the details:
- Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew base
- 605 hp @ 6000 rpm from a twin-turbo engine upgrade
- 622 lb-ft of torque

“The VelociRaptor 6×6’s appearance at SEMA was just a sneak peek, but we are done teasing,” said John Hennessey, founder and CEO of Hennessey Performance Engineering. “It is time to uncage our monster of a truck.”
“Our VelociRaptor 6X6 is pure aggression on wheels – all six of them,” said Hennessey. “The new 2017 Raptor is going to be one of the best all-around trucks ever built. We are excited to help take it to the next level both in terms of performance and exclusivity.”
