Hennessey doesn’t stop with the motor. The VelociRaptor wears new front and back sashes, a plenty of LED assistant lights, overhauled suspension bits, 20-inch Hennessey composite wheels, and 37-inch BFGoodrich KM03 tires.
The Hennessey VelociRaptor costs $147,950. That incorporates a 2019 Ford Raptor, so the cost, while soak, isn’t completely crazy. Hennessey intends to fabricate only 100 units for 2019 and every precedent will convey a three-year/36,000-mile guarantee.
