The 2018 Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6

It has been a year since the American coach Hennessey Performance presented his final three-axle SUV, in the style of the spectacular Mercedes-Benz G 63 AMG 6x6, and now we have seen it again at the SEMA Show. It's called Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6 and it will go into production.
Based on a Ford Raptor 2018, this Velociraptor 6x6 will be manufactured only 50 units, at a price of about 349,000 dollars each (about 300,000 euros to change). According to the manufacturer, it can be ordered both through Hennessey and certain Ford dealers in the United States.
Basically, the Texan company turns the Raptor 2018 'crew-cab' into a six-wheeled beast, with two rear axles with differential lock, suitably improved suspension, 20-inch wheels with Toyo all-terrain tires, specific bumpers, roll bar or lighting additional LED, among many other things.
Encouraging this bicharraco, as in the series model, we found a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost, although being Hennessey, it was sung that they would offer improvements, and so it is. The customer who so wishes may opt for a biturbo kit that carries power over 600 hp, if the 450 hp and 691 Nm of series are not enough.
In addition, the specialist optionally offers a Brembo brake system, although it is nothing, nothing cheap. $ 22,000 for six discs and six tweezers? What madness!
