Sealy, Texas (May 7, 2024) Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has begun production of its most powerful Ford F-150 Raptor – the VelociRaptoR 1000. Boasting 40+ percent more power, the Hennessey VelociRaptoR 1000 has super truck capabilities with tire-shredding performance and a symphony of high-revving exhaust notes to match.

Hennessey’s engineers improve the Raptor R’s powertrain with performance enhancements including an upgraded 3.8-liter supercharger, high-flow air induction, billet fuel rails, a heavy-duty supercharger belt, upgraded fuel lines, an air / oil separator system, plus Hennessey’s engine management calibration. The VelociRaptoR 1000 delivers 1,043 bhp to achieve with supercar-like performance. Hennessey’s super truck hits 60 mph from standing in just 3.1 seconds, and blasts a ¼ mile time of just 11.4 seconds @ 122 mph.

VelociRaptoR 1000 buyers also benefit from a wealth of convenience, appearance, and capability-boosting enhancements including a 3-inch lift with front / rear suspension leveling kit, VelociRaptor bumpers, Hennessey wheels and off-road tires, power fold-out steps, VelociRaptoR 1000 badging, and a 3-year / 36,000-mile warranty.

John Hennessey, company Founder and CEO: “The VelociRaptoR 1000 is now the apex predator of pick-up trucks.  The Raptor has been the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of trucks ever since it went into production. Our VelociRaptoR 1000 upgrade, with new wheels, tires, and big Brembo brakes takes this amazing, all-purpose vehicle and makes it the 911 Turbo S of trucks. It’s as good as it gets, period.”

Hennessey has built thousands of VelociRaptor models since it first modified an F-150 Raptor in 2009. It’s now the world’s best-selling modified performance truck, and the VelociRaptoR 1000 raises the performance bar even further. Owners are sure to love the characteristic exhaust note from the unique cross-plane V8 alongside the distinctive supercharger whine, and the truck’s go-anywhere capability.

In taking the Raptor R to new heights of performance, the Hennessey team employed all its 33 years of experience in ‘making fast cars faster’. The full-size truck underwent a rigorous program of R&D before a series of dyno and road tests. All this experience, research, development, and refinement deliver a VelociRaptoR 1000 with manufacturer levels of quality and reliability, backed by a 3-year / 36,000-mile Hennessey warranty.

Beyond the regular VelociRaptoR 1000 upgrades, owners can also opt for a performance brake kit upgrade featuring powerful, 6-piston Brembo brakes. With production underway, customers may now place orders at authorized Ford retailers or directly with Hennessey by calling +1 979.885.1300 or visiting HennesseyPerformance.com. Buyers should act quickly as the planned production run of just 500 vehicles is expected to sell out fast, making the VelociRaptoR 1000 as rare and exclusive as it is powerful.
