Hennessey Performance has just revealed the all-new Hennessey VelociRaptoR 6×6.
The Texan tuning firm has effectively transformed the Ford Raptor R, with its supercharged 5.2-liter V8, into a formidable 6×6 supertruck.
Utilizing a third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor R as its foundation, the VelociRaptoR 6×6 has an extended boxed frame and a second, fully functional, locking rear axle.

The suspension features live valve Fox dampers, with Brembo performance brakes ensuring strong stopping power.
A three-inch lift raises the body to accommodate Hennessey’s custom 20-inch alloy wheels that are wrapped in 37-inch off-road tires.
Lastly, an expansive eight-foot (2.4 meters) long load bed replaces the stock 5.5-foot (1.67-meter) bed, improving cargo capacity by more than 45 percent.
As well as mechanical upgrades, the 6×6 supertruck gets new front and rear numbers, LED lights, and Hennessey VelociRaptoR 6×6 badging.
It’s a beastly machine at nearly 27 feet long, roughly seven feet tall, and seven feet wide – with a curb weight of approximately 6,500 pounds.
The burly Ford Raptor R engine, a supercharged 5.2-liter V8, is untouched.
To be fair, though, 700 bhp and 640 lb-ft of torque is more than enough power to dominate both on- and off-road.
Hennessey has really taken to the 6×6 market in recent years, with the RAM-based MAMMOTH 6×6 TRX and Chevrolet-based Goliath 6×6 Silverado on offer from the Texan tuner.
Last year, Hennessey began offering its third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor upgrade, the twin-turbocharged V6 ‘VelociRaptor 600 6×6’.
“The supercharged V8 in the Raptor R perfectly complements our limited edition ‘VelociRaptoR 6×6’ package,” said company founder and CEO John Hennessey.
“The upgrade boosts traction and improves utility, which makes the 6×6 practical and functional.”
“It’s a real blast to drive – I consider it a go-anywhere supertruck with head-turning stage presence.”
Hennessey VelociRaptoR 6×6 price
Prices start from – brace yourself – $499,999.
That’s a significant sum of money, but it does include the cost of a base Ford F-150 Raptor R.
You also get a comprehensive three-year / 36,000-mile warranty for extra peace of mind, too.
