Hennessey Dudes It Again With VelociRaptoR 1000 Upgrade
Auto News

The Ford F-Series Pickup is the best-selling vehicle in America. The Ford F-150 Raptor R is the hell-raising Yankee-doodle performance variant of the F-150 pickup truck. Yes, people are prepared to pay over $100,000 for a Ford. The F-150 Raptor R is powered by a tuned V8 that outputs 700bhp. That is a lot of power for most normal people, and especially for a 2-tonne pickup truck. But not the folks over at Hennessey Performance who released an upgrade package that nearly doubles the power over the stock F-150 Raptor R.

The Hennessey VelociRaptoR 1000 is anticipated to boast nearly 1,000 bhp and more than 850 lb-ft of torque – engine output that would make the adept off-road pick-up one of the quickest and most powerful in the world.

The standard F-150 Raptor is fitted with a 2.65-liter supercharger as opposed to a twin-turbocharger configuration. The flagship Raptor R boasts Ford’s 5.2-litre ‘Predator’ V8. Hennessey’s engineers plan to replace the stock blower with a larger 3.8-liter supercharger.

Hennessey will also add a new high-flow induction, larger fuel injectors, upgraded fuel lines, and a new supercharger belt. When the final calibration is complete, the result is expected to be a 40 percent increase in output to 1,200bhp.

The new Hennessey VelociRaptoR 1000 is set for build in 2023. Customers may place orders now at authorized Ford retailers or directly with Hennessey by calling +1 979.885.1300 or visiting HennesseyPerformance.com.
