Hennessey VelociRaptor 6×6 Is America’s Answer To Mercedes-AMG G63 6×6

Hennessey has turned the 2018 Ford Raptor into a six-wheeled beast, for the 2017 SEMA Show, but unlike most vehicles presented in Las Vegas these days, it will actually be put into production.

The tuner says they will make just 50 examples, and each one will carry a starting price of $349,000.

So what does paying the hefty sum bring you? Well, a base 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor crew-cab, which will then be turned into a six-wheeled machine, benefiting from the 6×6 locking rear axles, upgraded suspension, 20-inch wheels wrapped in Toyo off-road tires, special front and rear bumpers, roll bar, and LED lights.

Moreover, the tuner will also allow customers to get the twin-turbo upgrade package that massages the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine to produce in excess of 600hp, as an optional extra. And speaking about extras, a Brembo braking system, with 6 calipers and rotors, can be fitted to the VelociRaptor 6×6, for an additional $22,000.

“The VelociRaptor 6×6 is the ultimate off-road vehicle. We will be building just 50 VelociRaptor 6x6s, which makes it not only one of the most aggressive and unique vehicles on the market, but also one of the most exclusive”, said John Hennessey, whose enthusiasm was hard to restrain. “Our VelociRaptor 6×6 is pure aggression on wheels – all six of them”, he added.

The company says that the six-wheeled truck can be had directly from Hennessey Performance, or through select Ford dealers.

      I dare say nothing that a 4×4 can’t. I just don’t get the point of this thing…

    Stretching the frame, adding a couple wheels, adding all the hardware shouldn’t cost over $250,000. I’ll admit it is a much better price than the Mercedes. That being said Ill fork over the money to buy one if I had it, I always loved the Raptor..

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    That’s ALLLLLOT of weight added for that V6 to move around. Even getting Hennessey’d for the cost of 600hp will not be enough. This guy thinks alot of himself huh? And who cares that it has locking diffs, this thing will be so slow and heavy, it will NEED them.

      Engines have been proven. Move on.

      • Auf Wiedersehen

        Not proven to carry another ton…I’m sure he will figure out how to just add a supercharger to it….you know since that’s his M.O.

        Hennessey: Let others engineer and innovate…we’ll just supercharge it.

    I’m guessing there will be a lot of orders from the UAE. Just an educatated guess.
