Hennessey VelociRaptor 6x6 Coming To SEMA To Crush The AMG 6x6

Reveal

John Hennessey is bringing his big guns to Vegas this year.

After revealing its intent to take on the Mercedes-AMG 6x6 with its own six-wheeled Velociraptor last year, Texas-tuner Hennessey has announced its plans to showcase the monstrous truck at SEMA next week, where it will be joined by the Bugatti Chiron-beating Venom F5. Under the hood, the Velociraptor 6x6 utilizes the Raptor’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that can be left stock with 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, or upgraded with a twin turbo package, dubbed the 600 Twin Turbo.

Upping output to 600 hp, the performance kit also includes a modified free-flowing stainless steel exhaust, uprated front-mount air-to-air intercooler and remapped ECU. The Mercedes-AMG G63 6x6, by comparison, comes with a 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 536 hp and 560 lb-ft of torque and is able to sprint from zero to 60 mph in less than six seconds. We can’t wait to see it in a drag race against the Velociraptor 6x6, which we assume will manage a similar time. Along with a 6x6 drivetrain, the truck gets three locking rear axles, an upgraded Fox suspension, 20-inch wheels wrapped in off-road tires, special heavy duty front and rear bumpers, a roll bar, and auxiliary LED lights.

Optional extras include Brembo brakes, a bespoke interior and armoring systems. Pricing for the VelociRaptor 6x6 starts from $295,000, which includes the base Raptor, while the 600-hp variant will cost an additional $22,500.
