AddArmor Has Customized The Hennessey VelociRaptor Into A Bullet-Proof Truck
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!
Hennessey Introduces a 1,000-Horsepower Ram 1500 TRX That Takes Just 3.2 Seconds to 60 MPH
Back in September 2020, Hennessey announced the introduction of a six-wheeled iteration of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX called the Mammoth 6x6. The super-exclusive truck was limited to just three examples and was priced at half-a-million bucks a pop. Even though it sounded super exciting, a more practical version of the truck would’ve been a better option. It looks like Hennessey has answered our wishes.
The aftermarket company’s latest project is a 1,000+ Horsepower ‘four-wheeled’ version of the Ram 1500 TRX. It comes with a host of other mechanical additions and features. Hennessey has also announced that it will build 200 examples of this truck.
2021 Ford F-150 Venom 800 By Hennessey
Aftermarket companies are snapping at new vehicles like hungry vultures; a case in point being the Ford Bronco. Companies like PaxPower, Saleen, and Hennessey, to name a few, have already made big announcements about it without even getting the car in flesh yet. Now, Hennessey has scalped another popular product from the house of the Blue Oval – the 2021 Ford F-150. Following up on the Venom 775 treatment given to its predecessor, the 2021 iteration is being built with extra horses, better performance figures, and beefier looks. Hennessey also announced that it will be making just 100 examples of the Venom 800.
2021 Ford Bronco V-8 VelociRaptor by Hennessey
The only chink in Bronco’s armor is the missing V-8 engine under the hood. Although Ford matched the Jeep Wrangler in every aspect, dare I say, even better in some, the lack of a V-8 will be a deal-breaker for some folks. However, aftermarket tuners have grabbed on to this opportunity. PaxPower was one of the first companies to announce a Bronco V-8 and soon many companies jumped the wagon. The latest one to do so is Hennessey Performance.
Hennessey has announced that it will be building a VelociRaptor version of the Ford Bronco with a V-8 mill that will churn out 750 horses. This will be a limited-edition build and will cost around four-times the cost of a standard Bronco. Is it worth it?
2020 Hennessey Upgrades The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 Harley-Davidson Edition By Tuscany
Earlier this year, Tuscany collaborated with Harley-Davidson to roll out a special edition GMC Sierra that was limited to just 250 examples. Around the same time, Hennessey had rolled out the GMC Sierra Denali Goliath 700. The truck came with 700 horses under the hood and transformed the simple Sierra into a magnificent beast. But, how do you combine the finesse of a Harley-Davidson edition truck and the performance of a Hennessey product? Well, you get them together!
An individual purchased the Harley-Davidson Sierra and took it to Hennessey for a performance upgrade. As the team says in the video, is this the Harley for a rainy day?
If 700 Horsepower Isn’t Enough, Hennessey Can Bost Your Dodge Durrango to 1000+ Horsepower
After coming up with the 6x6 version of the world’s fastest and quickest production pickup truck, the Ram 1500 TRX, there was a lot of curiosity surrounding Hennessey’s next project. As it turns out, the company chose the world’s most powerful production SUV this time to give it a typical Hennessey twist. The aftermarket company has announced that it will be coming up with a 1,000-plus-horsepower iteration of the 2021 Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat.
Hennessey’s Over-Tuned Jeep Trackhawk Humbles the Chevy C8 Corvette
Hennessey Performance is known to heavily tune the vehicles it takes under its wings. This isn’t a marginal increase as many products to date have been tuned to make around 1,000 horses. As if this wasn’t enough to hype the products, the tuner often hosts drag races with other supercars and SUVs to give us a glimpse and perspective of how fast and agile these vehicles get after a Hennessey tune-up. The latest video shows a tuned Grand Cherokee Trackhawk go up against a near-stock Chevy C8 Corvette. It’s a given which vehicle won, but it’s a fun video nevertheless.
2021 Ram 1500 TRX Mammoth 6x6 by Hennessey
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX took the automotive world by a storm. Powered by a V-8 Hellcat engine that makes over 700 horses, this big, bulky truck takes just 4.5 seconds to hit the 60 mph mark. Just when you thought this couldn’t get any better, Hennessey decided to throw in a surprise. The aftermarket company has announced a 6x6 conversion of the “Quickest, Fastest and Most Powerful Mass-produced Truck in the World”. Called the Mammoth 6x6, Hennessey will only build three examples of this 1,200-horsepower beast and sell it at half-a-million bucks a pop. God bless Hennessey.
The C8 Chevy Corvette Is Easily Dominated by a Hennessey-Tuned C7 Corvette Z06
Unlike Chevrolet, Hennessey isn’t interested in selling stock cars. Hennessey makes money out of its tuning kits, so don’t be so surprised that the tuner pitted a HPE850-imbued C7 Z06 against a factory-spec C8 with the latter not standing a chance. This video reeks of marketing and nothing but marketing.
2020 Lamborghini Urus by Hennessey
The Urus is arguably the most successful and the most important product for Lamborghini today. It was launched in September 2018, and the company has moved around 8,500 examples since then. Naturally, this meant there is a demand for the SUV, which makes it a favorite for the aftermarket tuners as well. We’ve seen renditions by companies like Mansory, but this time, Hennessey has laid its hands on the Urus. Result? A 750-horsepower beast that takes less than three seconds to hit the 60 mph from a standstill. Who would’ve imagined that someday, an SUV would achieve such ridiculous numbers!
