Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, Hennessey Performance, has started customer deliveries of its latest VelociRaptor 500 Bronco Raptor, an absolutely amazing take on the retro-styled 4x4 that the American market is hogging all to itself. The men in white coats (or possibly denim with a flannel shirt and cowboy hat) focused on upgrading the new Bronco’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre V6 engine to bump up the power and improve the drivability on and off road. Part of the work includes a high-capacity intercooler and, a tune on the engine management system to raise the boost and enhance the overall drive. This upgrade package has been given a proper manly and macho name like the rest of the conversions carried out by the firm, and so what you see here is the VelociRaptor 500. We will happily bet everything we own on the fact that not a single employee at Hennessey Performance drinks Bud Light. Hennessey's engineers recently travelled to Colorado’s Rocky Mountains to test the VelociRaptor 500 Bronco in challenging conditions like as snowstorms and freezing temperatures. Luckily they also gifted the Ford 4x4 with a set of Hennessey's custom 20-inch wheels with some monster-sized 37-inch off-road tyres so tackling the harsh terrain is a breeze.
Take a look at the YouTube video of the amazing conversion carried out by one the USA's top tuning houses - Hennessey PErformance, showing off one of their latest creations, the 500 hp Ford Bronco Raptor on the dyno to check that there are indeed as many horses harnessed under the hood as advertised: Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 Bronco Raptor // Chassis Dyno Testing | Hennessey Performance
