At Truckin, we are always wondering what's next. We love it when companies push the envelope, and the company that pushes the farthest often gets the most love. I am sure just about all of you have seen the 6-door Raptor built by a prince in the United Arab Emirates. Well, so did Hennessey Performance, and it inspired them to create something new.
Sealy, Texas-based Hennessey is known for taking cool cars and trucks and making them even cooler. Well, now they have taken one of their trucks, the VelociRaptor 600, and made it off-the-chain cool; converting it to a 7- or 8-passenger SUV. From the front and side, it merely looks like a Raptor with a camper shell. But, upon closer examination, the back half is all molded together. Even better are the Excursion-style rear barn doors and lift gate. Then you open the doors and look inside. According to the renderings from their website, the Velociraptor SUV is offered in two different interior configurations: 2 rows of bucket seats and a third row bench seat or 1 row of buckets and 2 rows of bench seats. Either way, this thing is set to be the coolest SUV on the market. Especially with the 600 horsepower offered by the TVS2300-equipped 6.2L engine under the hood. Pricing isn't listed online, but a call to their headquarters revealed that the price will be around $160,000. At that price, we'll take a black one and a white one. Just kidding...but seriously, we need to get our hands on one of these!
