Mat’s got his hands on the all-new almighty Hennessy Raptor R 6×6… And he’s about to find out what it’s like to live with as a daily driver!
He’s going to start off with a standard review of the car, and then he’s going to take it out on the road to find out what this car is like to live with over in the States!
So let’s take a closer look at this mega machine. On the outside, there’s no denying it’s superimposing, being both 7-foot tall and 7-foot wide! Up front, it’s sporting a huge steel push bar bumper and a light kit, while it’s also coated in Raptor R badges across the bonnet and side. That’s no surprise, of course, given this pick-up is basically based on the F150 Raptor R. But of course, there’s one exception – the load bed has been extended, and it’s now sporting six tyres!
Step inside and the fact that this pick-up is effectively an extended Raptor R is clear to see, given the interior is pretty much exactly the same! This means it comes with a sports steering wheel, red stitching across the cabin, along with paddle shifters and Recaro sport seats. It’s also been fitted with the carbon fibre trim, so you’ll find a smattering of that throughout the interior.
Under the bonnet you’ll find the same engine as in that Raptor R, which means you’ll be treated to a glorious 5.2-litre supercharged V8 that can produce 710hp and 840Nm of torque. Don’t expect it to hit the same 0-60mph & 1/4-mile time of the standard Raptor R, mind, given it tips the scales at 3,500kg!
But it’s not just packing a hefty weight, it comes with an equally large price tag, too, costing $450,000!! So is it worth it? You’ll need to stick with Mat and see for yourself!
