3 Reasons Why The 2019 Ford Mustang Hennessey Heritage Edition Is Special

It was in 1991 that John Hennessey began modifying and tuning cars to maximize their potential way and beyond what automakers were able or willing to. To celebrate the 10,000th car that Hennessey tuned, the company comes up with the Hennessey Heritage Edition of the 2019 Ford Mustang.

1. There Will Only Be 19 Units Available

This is a proper special edition car. Many tuning companies are quite too liberal in using the phrase “special edition” that we really cannot separate the cars anymore. Hennessey will only be producing 19 units of the car, so you better get your cash ready if you want to own one of these.

2. It Is Based On The 2018 Ford Mustang Heritage Edition

It is important to understand that the 2019 Ford Mustang Hennessey Heritage Edition is based on another special edition model—the 2018 Ford Mustang Heritage Edition. The most prominent addition to the 2019 model is the carbon fiber body parts, followed by a stainless steel exhaust system, a set of 20-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, and a livery package similar to what Ford used on its Heritage Edition Mustangs.

The interior gets a lot of upgrades, too, though you will first notice the individually numbered dashboard plaques that denote the model number of the 19 units that Hennessey will produce. There’s also a letter of authenticity and a personal letter of gratitude that comes from John Hennessey himself.

3. The Car has 808 Horsepower

But it’s not the changes on the exterior and the interior that highlights the Hennessey Heritage Edition. It’s what you find under the hood—a modified version of Ford’s 5.0-liter V-8 engine that can now produce 808 hp and 677 lb-ft of torque. With the new figures, this special edition car can now sprint from 0 to 62 mph in just 3.3 seconds. It also has a top speed of 200 mph.

Henneyssey Performance Engineering just introduced its customization package for the Ford Raptor. The famous American tuning house debuted its Hennessey Velociraptor at SEMA.

Here are the amazing features of the vehicle:

1. Six Wheels and Design Upgrades

The defining feature of the Hennessey Velociraptor is its six-wheel setup. The vehicle is based on the Ford Raptor F-150. The tuner said that the modification is compatible with the 2017 and 2018 models of the pickup.

The exterior of the Velociraptor is highlighted by its new 6×6 locking rear axles, suspension, bumpers, roll bar, LED lighting system and 20-inch wheels wrapped in off-road tires.

Customers can further level up their ride with add-ons included in their performance upgrade such as stainless steel replacements, air-to-air intercooler improvement and onboard computer tuning. They also have the option to get Brembo brakes for the front and rear, bigger wheels and tires, more advanced LED lights, better armoring and upgraded electronics.

2. Power

Buyers can bring up the power of their six-wheeler up to 600 hp through turbo reconfiguration. It should be noted that this boost is available for owners of unmodified Ford Raptors too.

3. Pricing

The price of the Hennessey Velociraptor with all the goodies mentioned above is at $295,000. On the other hand, those who only want the 600 hp performance increase for their Ford Raptors have to dish out $22,500.

The cost may be overwhelming to many, but be reminded that the famous Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG 6×6 had a sticker price of around $515,000 during its production run. However, after it ended its production, the six-wheeler has become rare and one auction in Florida back in 2015 sold one for an astounding price of $975,000.
