California Sand Tunes 2022 No match for Hennessy Velociraptor 600


While a good number of Ford F-150 Raptor-based Hennessey VelociRaptor 600s will never be driven by their owners on difficult off-road terrain, the massively modified pickup is extremely capable when it becomes difficult to navigate.

To see what the VelociRaptor 600 key is made of, the Texas Tuner recently brought one to Glamis Sand Tune in Southern California. This huge hill system stretches for more than 40 miles, and while testing the truck, it was driven on 300-foot hills and made several huge jumps.

“Our team produces approximately 500 high-performance vehicles each year for enthusiastic customers who rightly expect extreme performance with the mainstream manufacturer’s quality, reliability and service,” John Hennessy said in a statement. “Our oppressive ‘Fire and Ice’ program is the ultimate real-world outcome after hundreds of hours of research and development of each model line at our Texas headquarters. Our goal is to combine the ultimate performance with complete peace of mind. “

Soon after the VelociRaptor 600 was tested on a frozen mountain in Colorado, a brutal test began on a sand dune in California where the temperature dropped below 10 ° F (-12 ° C).

Each Hennessey model was also extensively tested at the company’s headquarters in Sealy, Texas, including the Pennzoil Proving Ground.

Many upgrades convert an F-150 Raptor to a VelociRaptor 600. For example, a high-flow air induction system, air-to-air intercooler, upgraded intercooler piping, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 facilities from new engine management to software, gasket and fluid updates, and dino tuning and cranking. The truck is good for 558 hp at 5,100 rpm and 672 lb-ft (911 Nm) of torque at 3,500 rpm.

Hennessey also offers its Off Road Stage 1 package for the model. It includes a separate front bumper, front LED light bar, a new rear bumper, 20-inch wheels, 35-inch off-road tires, powered electric fold-out step, a front suspension leveling kit and a 3-inch lift.
