The scheme of creating a powerful pickup from American tuning studio Hennessey is quite simple – you need to take a full-size Ford F-150 Raptor, replace the native EcoBoost V6 engine with a more productive 5.0-liter supercharged V8. I must say that the resulting truck sounds well, just extraordinarily brutal. The first deliveries of new items are expected in May of this year.

One of the signature features of the upgraded VelociRaptor pickups is that they mostly look quite normal to themselves. The biggest change in the exterior is associated with 8-inch backlash suspension, as well as a set of 37-inch tires, which are dressed on 20-inch wheels. Red brake calipers Brembo also give an unusual version of the car.

A 5.0-liter supercharged V8 engine that works with a 10-speed automatic transmission delivers 758 horsepower.

American tuning studio Hennessey has installed a stainless steel exhaust pipe that makes the engine literally growl like a real dinosaur. Not. Native Ford F-150 Raptor pickup engine EcoBoost V6 sounds good, but this supercharged V8 is simply inimitable. According to company representatives, the upgraded truck can accelerate to a speed of 100 km / h in just 4.1 seconds. And to overcome the 402 meters will take 12.2 seconds. The maximum speed of the car will be 185 km / h.

In total, 20 copies of Hennessey VelociRaptor V8 will be collected, and the price of “apiece” will be about $ 150,000
