By combining the same performance-tuning measures found in its Velicoraptor truck with ballistic protection, Hennessey hopes the 2012 Hennessey VelociRaptor Armored Performance Vehicle (APV) has both the right amount of fortitude and the ride amount of speed to get its clients out of even the worst of situations. It believes that having a vehicle that can safely and quickly get you out of harm’s way is just as important as having armored protection.
Based off the new off-road-ready Raptor Super Crew with the more-powerful 6.2-liter V-8 engine, the VelicoRaptor turns things up a notch with the addition of a supercharger. Output is up from 411 hp to a stout 575 ponies and 542 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the armor and extra power, Hennessey will be willing to meld the normal Raptor truck bed with a hardtop to create an isolated passenger cabin that can seat six, seven, or eight people. Satellite TV, high-speed internet, entertainment systems, and mobile office systems are some of the optional luxury accommodations inside.
Pricing begins at $150,000 for a non-armored version and goes up another $100,000 to $200,000 depending on how much protection the client needs.
