• You Must Drive the Hennessey Velociraptor 6x6 in Forza Horizon 4

It’s the best of both worlds

The Hennessey Velociraptor 6X6 is one of those vehicles that you’re both excited and scared to drive. I can imagine the thrill of sitting in the driver’s seat of this monstrous monolith on wheels and the fear that envelops you once you actually take it out for a drive. If you can handle it, you might enjoy it. If not, you might end up like that idiot thief who stole a Velociraptor 6X6 that was owned by a famous DJ and infamously got caught in the parking lot of a Burger King because he couldn’t do a proper turn in the six-wheeler.

Fortunately, there is an alternative to making sure that you remove fear out of the equation. Head over to Forza Horizon 4 and you can drive a Velociraptor 6X6 from the comfort of your own couch and not worry about messing it up. Even better, you can connect a Logitech G29 Steering Wheel and come about as close to driving the real deal and being at ease knowing that you can go all-out driving it and not spend a dime on repairs. If you still need more convincing that the Velociraptor 6X6 is an awesome ride, well, this 10-minute video should do the trick.

Owning a Hennessey Velociraptor 6X6 in the real world is a far different experience than owning one in the virtual world of Forza Horizon 4. As much as you want to, it’s hard to go all-out in this massive six-wheel version of the Ford F-150 Raptor without assuming the risks that come with driving such a large truck. After all, we’re talking about a truck that comes with a second locking rear axle, two extra wheels, an eight-inch increase in ground clearance, and an upgraded 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 602 pound-feet of torque.

Not only is it bigger, faster, and more powerful than a standard Ford F-150 Raptor, it’s also a lot trickier to drive.

On the other hand, those problems are moot in the world of Forza Horizon 4. You can own a Hennessey Velociraptor 6X6 and just go bonkers with it. You’re not going to get any tickets. You won’t be liable for the destruction that you cause. Heck, you can even drive off a cliff and not worry about losing your precious Herculean ride. You can drive the Hennessey Velociraptor 6X6 to your heart’s delight, as what this gamer did.

For a better driving experience, he hooked up a Logitech G29 steering wheel to his Xbox One, and you can tell by watching the video how much of a delight the Velociraptor 6X6 was to drive. It tore through gates and destroyed asphalt roads. It even had a bit of air time, proving that the laws of the natural universe don’t apply in video games.

You’re missing out on a lot of fun if you own a Forza Horizon 4 and you don’t have a Velociraptor 6X6 in your garage. Complete the “Into the Wilderness” Seasonal Championship if you want to get one, or you can purchase or bid for one should it appear in an Auction House listing. It may also appear as a listed item in the Forzathon Shop or be used as an award for the Festival Playlist. Just find a way to bring a Velociraptor 6X6 home with you in Horizon 4. You won’t regret it.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio
