Video: Hennessey unleashes VelociRaptor 500 Ford F150 pick-up


Ford’s F150 Raptor pick-up truck is an extremely popular vehicle in the USA, but even though it has plenty of grunt for the everyday tasks it needs to do, the tuners at Hennessey believed an increase in power is never a bad thing.

As such, they fitted a Whipple supercharger onto the Raptor’s 5.4-liter V8 engine, taking its power up to 501 HP and 520 lb-ft of torque. The engineers also threw in some other engine mods like a K&N intake, upgraded fuel injectors, a stainless steel exhaust system and, as usual, an updated the ECU for increased performance.

The result is a massive decrease in the 0 to 62 mph time of this new model, dubbed the VelociRaptor 500, from 8.4 to 5.6 seconds. Quarter mile times have also been improved, as the performance pick-up will now be able to sprint it in 14.1 seconds while reaching 97 mph.

In case these features sparked your interest, the full kit costs $10,950, or you opt to have it installed by the guys at Hennessey themselves, for $14,995, which also includes a one-year warranty. In case you’re still not convinced, hit the jump to a video of the Hennessey VelociRaptor 500.
