Do you look for brand or functionality? Would you rather spend about half a mil on the Mercedes-G63 6x6 or buy a Hennessey for just a fraction of the price? The Texas based manufacturer had just released the full pricing as well as the order details for its VelociRaptor 6x6. The on road rate begins at $349,000.
What’s more amazing is that around 50 more replicas (examples) will be built and will be available for customers all across the world. The design was first unveiled at SEMA during the dawn of this year. Each example would take around 11 months to be built. The new creations are intended to be ‘spiritual successors’ to the previous editions, especially to the standard VelociRaptor that was first released in 2010.
John Hennessey, the Founder & CEO of the Hennessey Group, said that the unveiling was just a sneak peek; the real deal is on its way. However, he added that they were done teasing.
The 602-HP VelociRaptor has a proud power outage of 602 horsepower (equivalent to 448 kW) and a 622 pound-foot engine. This SUV produces a whopping 152 horsepower of, well, power and 172 lb-ft of torque more than the factory Raptor. These special superpowers allow the vehicle to reach the speed of 60 miles an hour in just 4.9 seconds! It also has 6 wheels, Toyo Open Country tires, 6x6 rear axles for locking and a Fox suspension.
However, if you are looking for the 4-wheeled baby, the company still provides it for you! The VelociRaptor 600 too has amazing features like rapid suspension, a 600 horsepower engine and 35-inch Toyo road tires. Only about 100 of these available. Both of these can be ordered online through the Hennessey website!
