Hennessey introduces 2023 F-150 VelociRaptoR 1000
It feels like just yesterday we’re grabbing the keys to a new world Ford F-150 Raptor R 2023 for our test drive at Silver Lake, but after-sales moving at the pace of demand, and Hennessey Performance reckons there’s a need for a 1,000-horsepower upgrade package for the Blue Oval’s new screamer. Meet the VelociRaptoR 1000. Yes, it’s as silly as you think.
“Hennessey VelociRaptor is the world’s best-selling modified performance vans, we’ve built thousands of apps for customers around the globe. The VelociRaptoR 1000 dramatically elevates the performance bar in terms of sheer power. Add to that the signature turbocharger whine and distinctive exhaust sound from the unique transverse V8, and this package is unbeatable.”
Hennessey doesn’t have a final power figure yet, but the goal is clear: four digits or (or maybe a little more). Thanks to the GT500, this engine is already popular with builders like Hennessey, which may help explain how quickly their team turned this around. VelociRaptoR 1000 throws F-150 Raptor Hennessey says the R’s 2.65-litre supercharger gets precedence over the 3.8-litre head unit which comes with a high-flow intake system, larger fuel injectors, upgraded fuel lines and new supercharger belts, Hennessey said.
Seems wise, it’s actually reasonably sedating. You’ll get bolted bumpers and LED lighting, plus 20″ wheels wrapped in 37″ tires (factory diameter). Hennessey said each person will leave the store with a sign commemorating its number. Order banks are open and you can inquire through Hennessey’s website or a affiliated Ford sellerbut the final price will have to wait until the tuner finalizes the rest of the package specifications.
