Hennessey, the Texas-based hypercar manufacturer and high-performance vehicle creator, has announced the arrival of its all-new VelociRaptor 500 Bronco – the eighth VelociRaptor model to come from Hennessey’s development team. Engineered to be more potent and capable than Ford’s factory Bronco Raptor, Hennessey’s engineers applied their expertise to the 4×4’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine.
A new high-capacity intercooler, proprietary engine management system tuning, and low-flow exhaust modifications allow the VelociRaptor 500 Bronco to deliver nearly 20 percent more output – 500 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of terrain conquering torque!
The new high-output Hennessey model increases capability and adrenaline in every scenario, adding serious speed on road and ratcheting-up off-road ability. But Hennessey didn’t stop there. Their engineering team boosts road presence and style with its Hennessey Heritage graphics, adorned with a Hennessey bucking bronco.
Every Hennessey VelociRaptor 500 Bronco is road-tested at the company’s private test track
John Hennessey, company founder and CEO: “Our customers are big fans of the new Bronco, but they’ve been asking us for more power and greater performance capabilities from day one. Ford’s Raptor version is a big improvement, but the engine has even more potential. Our engineering team has released its potency to create the ultimate all-powerful off-road SUV.”
Priced from $32,950 – exclusive of the base Ford Bronco Raptor – the VelociRaptor 500 package features enhanced air induction, a high-capacity intercooler with blow-off valve, and an upgraded engine-management system to boost performance of its twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine.
Hennessey transforms the exterior with custom VelociRaptor bumpers, unique Hennessey 10-spoke alloy wheels, Hennessey Heritage graphics, and VelociRaptor 500 Bronco badging. The interior features Hennessey’s embroidered head restraints, all-weather floor mats, and unique plaque.
