• AddArmor Has Customized The Hennessey VelociRaptor Into A Bullet-Proof Truck

Here’s a pickup truck that will keep you and the occupants safe from bullet shots

Bullet-proof vehicles aren’t uncommon anymore. We’ve seen a lot of SUVs and sedans transformed into beasts that can take bullets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But, how about a bullet-proof pickup truck? AddArmor has transformed a truck into a safe room on wheels, and the truck is none other than the Hennessey VelociRaptor!

AddArmor has made use of Dyneema for the build, which is a polycarbonate composite that the company says is 40-percent stronger than Kevlar and 15 times stronger than steel.

It can withstand AK-47 rounds and other explosive devices, too. The build comes with run-flat tires that can be driven up to 50 miles per hour, Brembo brakes, and a front suspension leveling kit. It also comes with other safety and protection features such as:

  • A counter-attack sound system
  • Electric-shock door handles
  • Concealed front and rear bumpers
  • A dual battery system
  • Siren and stone lights
  • An operational intercom system
  • Bomb scanning capabilities

  • Can be equipped with optional stuff like pepper spray dispensers, electric shock handles, outside mic and speaker, run-flat tires, etc.

There’s no word on the pricing of this build, but the basic packages start from $28,000. This VelociRaptor has a lot of stuff, so we’re sure it costs a bomb (pun intended).

About The Hennessey VelociRaptor

The Hennessey VelociRaptor is based on the Ford F-150 Raptor. It comes with a power upgrade that makes 600 horses and 622 pound-feet of torque. The truck takes 4.2 seconds to 60 mph from rest and 12.9 seconds to quarter-mile at a top speed of 110 mph. These figures will be compromised since a lot of weight is added to the AddArmor build.
