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.
