4 x 4 Australia - - Contents -

ONE of the wildest of­froad ve­hi­cles ever con­ceived will soon be avail­able to buy­ers in Australia, but you’ll need deep pock­ets to get one.

The Hen­nessey Ve­loci­rap­tor takes the al­ready nuts Ford Rap­tor, stretches it, adds six-wheel drive and tweaks the turbocharged Eco­boost en­gine for up to 800hp!

The 600hp+ package in­cludes up­graded tur­bocharg­ers, high-flow in­duc­tion, a per­for­mance in­ter­cooler, stain­less-steel ex­haust sys­tem, forged con­rods and pis­tons, up­graded trans­mis­sion and ECU, and much more. Huge Brembo brakes are fit­ted to all six of the 20-inch wheels, as are Fox Rac­ing shock ab­sorbers. All per­for­mance-up­graded Ve­loci­rap­tors are serial-num­bered with their unique iden­tity.

Mel­bourne’s Amer­i­can Ve­hi­cle Sales has se­cured the rights and ap­provals to im­port, con­vert and sell the Hen­nessey here in Australia, with prices start­ing from $505,000 and heading up­wards depend­ing on how game you’re pre­pared to ven­ture with the en­gine up­grades.

AVS’S James Hill de­scribed the Ve­loci­rap­tor as the su­per­car of the off-road world, but added: “Can you take your Lam­borgh­ini on the beach? Will your Bu­gatti carry your dirt bikes to Cape York? Will your Fer­rari take you across the Simp­son?”

The Ve­loci­rap­tor can do all of the above and will turn more heads than any of the Ital­ian sports cars, wher­ever you take it.

AVS im­ports, con­verts and sells a range of Amer­i­can ve­hi­cles in­clud­ing pick-ups, mus­cle cars, reg­u­lar Ford Rap­tors, and now the Ve­loci­rap­tor.
