• 2010 Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 600 by Hennessey

LISTEN 01:50

If the Hennessey tuned-Ford F-150 VelociRaptor 500 isn’t powerful enough for you, then you’re in luck. Somehow, Hennessey shares the same sentiments and have thus decided to give their mountain of a truck its own big brother.

In this video, we are given the first look at the new tuned-up 6.2-liter V8 Raptor that is reported to produce over 605 horsepower and 622 lb/ft of torque. Those figures, if you didn’t know, are a jump over the VelociRaptor 500’s output of 501 horsepower and 520 lb/ft of torque and should lead to a significant decrease in time for the 0-60mph sprint. If you don’t remember, the VelociRaptor 500 completed the 0-60mph sprint in 5.6 seconds leading us to believe the new Raptor will complete the sprint in just over 5 seconds.

In addition to the more powerful engine, Hennessey Performance also gave this beast of a truck a twin-turbo system with matching intercoolers and a stainless-steel exhaust that clearly doesn’t need any explanation as to why it was put there. Hennessey also added an upgraded fuel system and boost controller because, well, with that much added power, the truck needs a little help in the respiratory department.

You want steel-breaking, mountain-crumbling power? This 6.2-liter Ford V8 VelociRaptor is just what the doctor of destruction ordered, even though we cannot possibly think of a reason why anyone would need such a speedy mountain of a truck.

Updated 05/03/2011: In their latest episode, Top Gear USA tested the VelociRaptor 600 by Hennessey at their personal test track. Watch what The Stig has to say about the car after the jump.

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

eddielong,
I’ll drive my truck up your huge vagina, revving it up all the way. F#@k you and F#@k your major city.

Please keep them out of the major cities. The roads are congested enough. Their purpose is for OFFROAD racing not revving them up while waiting at the traffic light in a crowded intersection.

I agree, this truck is built for dirt and not on streets.
