Hennessey's VelociRaptor Up Against A Stock Raptor
June 20th, 2017
As you may already know, Hennessey Performance is known to take production cars to a whole new level and for the 2017 Ford Raptor truck, they took it up a FEW levels! In a video recently posted by Hennessey, they have a stock 2017 Raptor going against the Hennessey VelociRaptor 600 Twin Turbo.
Now with 600HP and 622 lb-ft torque, it's no wonder the VelociRaptor dominated this race. With a 0-60 time of 4.2 seconds and the 1/4 mile in 12.9 seconds, it's clear this is no regular Ford Raptor.
This Sunday starting at 9am there’s all new tech from the shops. In Truck Tech, the guys get to work on the '30 Model A Ford with quick disassembly and the build up of a crate chassis including axles, suspension, springs, shocks, links and I-beam front end.
Then in PowerNation Katie’s featured ride is this 80’s IMSA GTP series inspired SuperLite Coupe. Owner Bill Phillips and painter Anthony Kutas will talk about building, painting and driving these cool kit cars. Bill received the chassis, suspension, glass and body and then he decided everything else. He opted for an LS-3 with a 6 Speed. Anthony from Charlotte Speed Shop took over the challenge of laying down the Ferrari Yellow paint. Plus it’s super comfortable to drive on the street or the track! It’s a full block of tech so make sure you tune in.
