Through the magic of forced induction, power grows from the 6.2-liter V8 Raptor's stock 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque to a slightly-goofy 602 hp and 622 lb-ft of twist in the V-Rap 600. Not enough for you? Hennessey either, which is why he's also selling the VelociRaptor 800. Get all the liquids out of your mouth now, as the engine stonks it up to the Texas-sized tune of 810 hp and 745 lb-ft of torque. Can we borrow an exclamation point?

Read the story on the Velociraptor the other day. That is like a $25,000 option above the purchase price, but well worth it if you have the money.

it should. thats life, bro. you should drive my truck and feel what slow is like.

The Raptor is seriously one of the sexiest trucks ever made. I've got about a year left on the financing for my 03 STX f150, and then I'm gonna look to sell it to put a down payment on a Raptor.
