In our world, we don’t really give particular importance to the whole Jesse James/Sandra Bullock saga; we leave that to the tabloid pages. See, when it comes down to it, we don’t really care about the whole cheating scandal the West Coast Chopper-builder was recently involved in. What we do care about is the fact that James recently purchased a brand-spankin’ new Hennessey VelociRaptor 575 complete with the tune-up kit that the TV star reportedly paid somewhere around $11,000 to bang up on his new truck.

There’s also a video of James’ new monster pick-up being given a dyno test by the folks at Hennessey where the supercharged monster produced 496 horsepower and about 473 lb/ft of torque. You want to hear the only kind of sound that’s music to the ears of all auto enthusiasts?

Check out the video and amp up the volume. That is, if you can handle the sound of a VelociRaptor 575 in the middle of a dyno test.

What a monster! This truck would be much ferocious if they keep it all black, but looks good anyway.

I really like the boost in the engine performance of the car. As expected from the Hennessey it has an incredible speed performance. Its a good thing that the weight of the car doesn’t affect the vehicle.

Well, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the speed performance of the car. I love the boost in the figure performance and deliver power of the car. I think its just enough to make the car blast in the race track.

I really love the styling of the car it look so aggressive! The speed performance of the car is quite good. I wonder on what is better the Ford F-150 or this one?

Hell! I bet this would be one of the best truck that I have seen in the market! The speed performance is great and with its torque I bet it would a speedy vehicle!

The platform and engine performance of the car is quite impressive with its newer tuning kit. I want to see this car run in the road and see if it has difficulty in the corner.

I thought that I have seen the most high performing truck but I have to say that this vehicle seems better compare to the F-150. I like the operatic sound in the engine of this car makes it feel like smooth to drive.

Well, I was impressed knowing that this car has around 473 lb/ft of torque. For a car that is equivalent with the rocket-like performance of a car.

I didn’t know that Ford is making an impressive trucks! However, Im wondering on why they named this car as Hennessey? IS this truck has something to do with super cars?

The 575 upgrade to the Ford SVT Raptor has a centrifugal supercharger, air-to-air intercooler, high-flow air filter and a fuel injector upgrade, among other tweaks to get the engine to 575 horsepower and 542 pound-feet of torque.

A rock star among pickups has been acquired by a TV star who has recently been often in the glare of the tabloid spotlight.
