Hennessey Creates Custom Ford F-150 VelociRaptor For The Rock

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson may be one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood right now, but you’re not going to see him rolling through the streets of L.A. in a multi-million-dollar hypercar.

You see, measuring 6 ft 5 in (196 cm) and weighing roughly 260 lbs (118 kg) has its disadvantages, and Johnson simply can’t fit in most low-slung performance cars. Consequently, he prefers rolling around in huge pickup trucks more supportive of his size. Thanks to Hennessey Performance, he now has a new pickup to enjoy.

The Texas tuning company recently took to Facebook to share a number of images of The Rock’s latest whip. Painted in bright blue, the pickup once started out life as a regular Ford F-150 Raptor but has been turned into a VelociRaptor by Hennessey.

Modifications include an increased ride height, aggressive matte black bull bar with an LED light bar, huge off-road wheels and tires, and a beefy bumper at the rear. It looks extremely menacing and definitely suits Johnson’s style. The pickup also includes a V8 rather than the twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 usually found in the Raptor.

The Rock isn’t the only celebrity to recently get the keys to a custom VelociRaptor. At the start of the year, rapper Post Malone welcomed a VelociRaptor 6×6 to his burgeoning fleet of vehicles. And if you thought Johnson’s new ride was insane, it has nothing on Malone’s that not only has six wheels, but even a custom .50 caliber machine gun mount in the bed.
