One thing you rarely see screaming down the dragstrip is a full size truck that was built for screaming up dirt hills. Hennessey Performance Engineering decided they would rather see this truck on the strip than on the dirt. They took the new Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, changed it up a little and sent it down the track.



The full story and more photos are available at Worldcarfans.com. This truck is available to purchase from Hennessey Performance.







Hennessey Performance Engineering, which is based out of Texas, was able to take this truck down the quarter mile in 14.09 seconds at 97 mph. This was achieved by taking the 5.4 liter V8 engine up to 501 hp and 520 foot-pounds of torque. If your wondering how they got the power up that high, it started by installing a Whipple supercharger, a tune, and a K&N intake.



If you would like to get your hands on one of these high powered off-road vehicles that were adjusted for the strip, you’re in luck, because 100 of these Hennesssey VelociRaptor 500s will be produced this year - and you can get one for about $15,000 over the factory Raptor. Check out the video below.
