Default Hennessey slaps a pair of turbos on Ford's Raptor 6.2 [w/Video]

Hennessey slaps a pair of turbos on Ford's Raptor 6.2 [w/Video]

Well of course they did. If John Hennessey is known for anything, it's strictly adhering to the "Needs more power!" motif. This guy could watch a shuttle launch and return to his lab plotting a third booster. So yes, Hennessey has slapped two turbochargers onto Ford's batty-yet-burly F150-mutant Raptor 6.2 and produced the VelociRaptor 600 and 800, two products that will nicely compliment the existing Hennessey VelociRaptor 500, a supercharged version of the Raptor 5.4.

Through the magic of forced induction, power grows from the 6.2-liter V8 Raptor's stock 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque to a slightly-goofy 602 hp and 622 lb-ft of twist in the V-Rap 600. Not enough for you? Hennessey either, which is why he's also selling the VelociRaptor 800. Get all the liquids out of your mouth now, as the engine stonks it up to the Texas-sized tune of 810 hp and 745 lb-ft of torque. Can we borrow an exclamation point?

We know what you're thinking -- the Bentley Mulsane's twin-turbo V8 makes 752 pound-feet of torque, besting the Hennessey 800 by seven pounds of twisting force. However, the Hennessey VelociRaptor 800 makes 305 more ponies than the British thoroughbred, weighs less (what doesn't?) and can keep up with the hounds no matter the fox hunt. That said, the Muslanne has a nicer interior. Think we're being silly? We are, because engines like this bend our minds a bit. Remember, 810 hp is nearly 100 hp more than a Ferrari 599XX.

But what if you already have a Raptor 6.2, want more power but don't want two turbochargers? Again, no problem, as Hennessey is also announcing the VelociRaptor 475, that through better breathing and some reprogramming, ups the big V8's output to 475 hp and 485 lb-ft of torque. Dang.

My neighbor just got a 6.2 and we have been "off-roading" twice... it's amazing!!! And the ride on the street is surprisingly refined... this is actually in my mix for fun/boat hauling...

IMO... adding the 475 package would be fine, going higher is INSANE!!!!!

You know Hennesy has earned a bad rap in his early years and never backed down or apologized for it not an ounce what so ever. But as much as i hate to say it, and it pains me to say it. I see nice things coming out of his shop. He's like a cockroach that wont die no matter how much crap you throw at him. Would i ever put my hard earned money in his hands. Probably not. But hell if i dont see him surviving and amazing work coming out of his operation.
