Hennessey Performance has unveiled the 2019 VelociRaptor V8 at SEMA 2018. The truck started life as a normal Ford Raptor with an EcoBoost V6 engine under hood. Hennessey takes out that V6 and crams a 5.0L Ford V8 under the hood.
It’s not a normal 5.0L V8, this one wears a 2.9L supercharger forcing 7psi of boost into the engine. The result of all that boost is 758bhp and 570 rear wheel horsepower. The engine is mated to a Ford 10-speed automatic transmission.
Hennessey also fits the truck with cooling and fuel system upgrades. VelociRaptor front and rear bumpers are fitted along with LED front lights and a 6-inch Stage 2 off-road suspension system. The truck uses 37-inch BFG off-road tires. Pricing is unannounced, and 100 units will be built.
