VelocirRaptor 600 Gets CARB Approval

Hennessey Performance just got their supercharged VelociRaptor 600 approved by the California Air Resource Board! What does a 600 horsepower VelociRaptor sound like, check out the video and decide for yourself it this thing is as bad ass as it claims to be.  So how fast is the CARB legal VelociRaptor 600? Fast enough to blow the doors off the much lighter second generation SVT Lightning! With 600 horsepower on tap at 5,700 rpm's, the VelociRaptor 600 will do 0-60 in  5.2 seconds and run the quarter mile in 13.6 seconds at 103 mph through the lights. We think giving the Raptor 600 horsepower is just awesome! The top speed is 110 mph but that's more of a tire limitation than anything else, although, we wouldn't recommend trying to find the top speed in the dirt. It's amazing what modern off road trucks can accomplish compared to just a few years ago let alone a few decades ago. One thing's for sure, Hennessey Performance is still pushing the limits of the Raptor to near race truck levels!
