Hennessey Performance has been a very active tuning company at the start of 2010, releasing several new projects including this Ford F150 Raptor. Recently we received news about their latest Cadillac CTS-V and Camaro builds, and now have the fresh ‘VelociRaptor 500‘ project. Taking the trucks performance to a new level, the guys from Hennessey upgraded the 5.4-liter V8 engine to produce 501 hp at 5,100 rpm, with maximum torque reaching 520 lb-ft at 3,200 rpm. These new figures allow the Ford F-150 Veloci Raptor 500 to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 5.6 seconds, and run the quarter mile in 14.09 seconds at 97 mph.
Modifications to the new Raptor F150 truck include 9 psi of boost to the supercharger, a new K&N air filter, aftermarket headers, upgraded injectors, new fuel rails, high performance exhaust system, and a much needed ECU tuning. Hennessey Performance will also offer a few styling upgrades, but what you see here is a typical factory looking Ford F-150 Raptor. If you haven’t heard of the new Raptor from Ford, well lets just say the suspension has been built to take on almost any type of off-road condition.[Source: Hennessey Performance]
